Kasimpasa vs Ankaragucu
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 2 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:15 UK / 18:15 CET
Venue: Recep Tayyip Erdogan Stadyumu, Istanbul.
The Apaches are living a fairy-tale at the start of the new Super Lig campaign. They have the perfect record after three rounds of the competition and they head towards Sunday’s home tie with league newcomers Ankaragucu high on confidence aiming to keep on dreaming.
Mbaye Diagne is enjoying the best form of his life as the Senegalese striker packed an impressive five-goal tally in three games so far. He is currently on an incredible streak of ten consecutive matches which saw him bag at least one goal. The thread includes the very finish to the previous season and pre-season friendlies alongside three opening games of the new campaign.
Kasimpasa vs Ankaragucu: Head-to-head
This will be the first league clash between the two teams since the 2010/11 campaign.
The draw was by far the most common of the outcomes in a 17-game long history of rivalry.
Teams shared spoils as many as ten times along the way.
Ankaragucu have never managed to see off Kasimpasa on the road where they lost three and drew five of eight H2H outings.
Kasimpasa vs Ankaragucu: Prediction
Ismail Kartal can also be satisfied with how his men reacted after the initial defeat to Galatasaray on the opening day. Ankaragucu showed no fear to claim four points from following two games against Alanyaspor and Trabzonspor, but such positive thread will be on a massive test when they take on the red-hot Kasimpasa side on Sunday.
Stopping the in-form Diagne will be a huge problem for the visitors whose defensive line proved out to be quite vulnerable against both Galatasaray and Trabzonspor. They did keep a clean sheet against Alanya, but it will count for little when they come face to face with a much more dangerous attacking line such as Kasimpasa’s.
Based on everything written above, the home win just has to be a baker bet at the 1.90 odds, while you can alternatively back the hosts to score two or more goals at the 1.72 odds.
