Kasimpasa vs Trabzonspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 18 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Kasimpasa were hit by a sharp dip in form towards the closing stages of their campaign and were without a win in their last seven games. The squad’s far from impressive streak almost cost them their place in the first division as they ended up dangerously close to the relegation zone with not more than thirty-nine points at the end of the season.
On the other hand, Trabzonspor had a much better run of form in their respective clashes and subsequently brought the curtains down last time out with an eleven game unbeaten run. The visitors have already gotten their European campaign off to a positive start as well with a 4-3 aggregate win over Sparta Prague in the qualifiers earlier this week.
The away side were a tough team to take down on the road last season, and are more than likely to be too hot to handle for Kasimpasa who are an extremely mediocre side in comparison.

- Only one out of their last five games have seen under 2.5 goals on the scorecards.
Kasimpasa vs Trabzonspor Prediction
The visitors succumbed to defeat on just four instances in their trips on the road last season and found the back of the net twenty-five times from their seventeen outings.
Trabzonspor have also netted nine goals in their last five away games across all competitions and will certainly be keen on racking up their goals tally right from their opening game. Furthermore, two out of their last three visits to this venue, have seen them walk away with the bragging rights.
Considering that Kasimpasa have just one win from their previous six games on home soil, the squad look far from convincing enough to take down the in-form Trabzonspor in their clash on Sunday.
However, you can count Kasimpasa to not go down without a fight. The hosts have scored at least one goal in each of their last eight clashes here. Taking into account that they have also breached Trabzonspor in four of their previous six meetings at this venue, expect neither side to finish the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact.
