Kayserispor vs Antalyaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Monday, 13 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Kadir Has Sehir Stadi (Kayseri).
Kayserispor and Antalyaspor are going to face each other in the closing match of the Turkish Super Lig opening round.
Home side had a pretty decent last season but their awful finish prevented them of getting involved in the battle for the Europa League spot. They tied five straight defeats in the very finish of the campaign and slipped down to the 9th position.
Asamoah Gyan and the lads were pretty productive in front of the oppositions’ goal, while their defence could have been tighter. Kayserispor managed to improve in their latest pre-season matches as they tied two straight victories by keeping the clean sheet.
Antalyaspor had severe financial troubles in the middle of the last season which reflected on the squad and the results. They were on the edge of going down all the way of the campaign, however the visitors managed to survive somehow.
Hamza Hamzaoglu’s side were fairly poor in the back, while their attacking work has been decent. Antalyaspor were one of the worst away sides in the competition, however they managed to get back home with a win three times in the last five outings and therefore improve their chances of survival.
Kayserispor vs Antalyaspor: Head-to-head
In their past six encounters, both sides managed to celebrate three victories each. Their matches are usually efficient ones and the crowd is able to see at least three goals per game. Kayserispor booked three wins in their last four clashes.
Kayserispor vs Antalyaspor: Prediction
The hosts are favourites in this one and they should be able to start a new season with a home victory. it is questionable if the visitors managed to recover from their problems and in which shape they are expecting the season-opener.
As both sides have been playing well in the front and their defences are not at a good level, this clash should go over 2.5 margin. Kayserispor’s home matches have been high scoring ones in the last season.
