Istanbul Basaksehir vs Osmanlispor
Date: 3rd December 2017
Kick off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Istanbul Basaksehir are flying high in this term of Super Lig.
The hosts sit just two points below Galatasaray at the top of the standings and they will have a chance to expect the hot run of form this Sunday when they host the struggling Osmanlispor side at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu in Istanbul.
Abdullah Avci’s men ended the run of three consecutive league wins on Monday when they were held to a 1-1 draw by the fifth-placed Kayserispor on the road.
Nonetheless, the team quickly returned on the winning ways on Thursday when they eased past the lower-division Kahramanmarasspor in Turkish Cup (1-3).
Avci has a true predator in the final third in the like of Emmanuel Adebayor who has been red-hot lately netting five goals in last three matches.
The Ottomans have had huge issues at the start of the season, but they finally managed to see a glimmer of hope in their ambitions of avoiding the drop come May last Friday when they saw off the rock-bottomed Genclerbirligi at home.
The win was backed up with the cup success in mid-week, but Irfan Buz and his side don’t have much to hope for in the capital given their horrendous spell of form on the road in this term of Super Lig.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Osmanlispor: Head to head
Osmanlispor have been the more successful side in head to head meetings over the course of history as they lead the tie by two wins coming into their 19th encounter with Basaksehir side.
Nonetheless, Istanbul came out victors when the two teams last tackled reach other back in late-February this year.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Osmanlispor: Prediction
Everything points out to a pleasant afternoon for the home team fans and it is really hard to go past Istanbul’s victory here.
The vale is also in backing Adebayor to keep his excellent spell of form going and score a goal in fourth consecutive appearance for Istanbul.
