Istanbul Basaksehir vs Yeni Malatyaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 6 April 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Istanbul Basaksehir survived a stern Akhisarspor test last weekend to clinch a super important victory after a second-half comeback. Abdullah Avci’s men have thus continued to push Galatasaray at the very top of the Super Lig standings. They are just a single point behind Cimbom and as many as three above the defending champions Besiktas in third.
It was just the narrow 1-0 victory over Besiktas (before the international break) that has revoked the spirits at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu. It completely returned the hope for the title and there are no doubts the hosts will be highly motivated to make three wins on the bounce when they open the round at home against mid-table Yeni Malatyaspor on Friday. A result here would climb the team up to the very top of the league ladder at least for three days as Galata only play heir match on Monday away at Genclerbirligi.
The visitors have been playing hot and cold throughout the season. They’ve managed to recover from a tough 4-1 loss away at Trabzon last time out when they defeated Genclerbirligi with the same scoreline. Such result should ring for the alarm bells in Istanbul who will need to be super careful if they want to grab much-wanted spoils from this one.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Yeni Malatyaspor: Head-to-head
The two sides have only played each other once in a competitive affair.
It happened in November last year when Basaksehir notched a comfortable 0-2 victory at Yeni Malatya Stadyumu.
Teams have also met in a mid-season friendly when the Istanbul outfit took a demolishing 4-1 victory.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Yeni Malatyaspor: Prediction
The hosts just can’t miss out on such a fantastic chance to regain the very top of the Super Lig standings.
We believe they’ll push hard from the very start of the match and we’ll back them to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end as our top suggestion.
