Kasimpasa vs Goztepe
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Friday, 5 October 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Recep Tayyip Erdogan Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Teams with completely opposite form are set to tackle each other in the first fixture of the 8th round in Super Lig. Kasimpasa lost three on the bounce in the competition, but they still sit sky-high sixth in the league ladder, level on points with the in-form Goztepe side.
This is obviously thanks to the overwhelming start to the new season the Apaches enjoyed. It was a blend of a somewhat easier schedule and team’s splendid form in the final third. Kemal Ozde’s side continued to be efficient up front, but they were just lame at the back dropping a two-goal cushion to lose 4-2 at the end last weekend away at Trabzonspor.
The third consecutive league defeat caused the board to part ways with Ozde which came as a surprising decision after such a fine kick off to the season the team has had. The interim manager Mustafa Denizli will thus be the man in charge for the hosts on Friday against Goz Goz.
Kasimpasa vs Goztepe: Head-to-head
- Kasimpasa dominated this match-up in the most recent history.
- The Apaches won each of last four H2H games against Goztepe, including two comfortable victories in the previous term of Super Lig.
- Moreover, Kasimpasa bagged two or more goals in each of last four encounters with Goz Goz.
- Goztepe won just 1, drew 5 and lost 3 of 9 H2H matches with Kasimpasa away at Recep Tayyip Erdogan Stadyumu.
Kasimpasa vs Goztepe: Prediction
Kasimpasa shipped as many as ten goals in last three league outings. It will clearly be the music to the ears of Yasin Oztekin who has been the catalyst to the rise in Goztepe’s form. The Turkish striker bagged four goals in last three appearances for Goz Goz, helping Bayram Bektas’ side win three on the spin in Super Lig.
The value is thus enormous in backing the visitors to net two or more goals past the struggling defensive line of Kasimpasa at the odds of 2.25. You will also hardly make a mistake with the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS pick, paid at the 1.90 odds.
