Kayserispor vs Istanbul Basaksehir Prediction
Kayserispor were on the road the last match-day against Gaziantep, and in the tense affair, either team were reduced to ten on the pitch due to red cards. At the end of the ninety minutes though, home advantage played a big role, and thus Kayserispor lost 3-0.
In the meantime, Basaksehir faced a setback in their chase for the top spot, as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home, by Konyaspor.
This Sunday, the level of competitiveness by Istanbul will be off the charts. The reasons are – Basaksehir were unable to start their season on a positive note, and several other teams in the league took advantage of it.
As a result, the top-most spot, which used to be the territory of Basaksehir, is now being enjoyed by Sivasspor, that too with a six-point lead.
However, lately Istanbul had returned to form, and were giving a tough run for the pole position, but the unexpected draw at home the last match-day have once again played spoilsport for them.
As a result, Kayserispor should expect a fierce fight from the guests.
Moreover, Istanbul have lost just thrice in their previous 25 match-ups, and two of those three losses had come in the Europa, while the remaining one occurred in the league. On the road, they are on an unbeaten run of nine trips, and impressively, kept clean sheets in five of their last seven such games.
On the other hand, Kayserispor were winless in 22 of their last 27 overall match-ups, and have so far recorded just two league wins this whole season.
In addition, Istanbul have dominated the h2h clashes against this opponent, especially in recent times. In fact, of the last five such meetings here, Basaksehir recorded three wins, and two draws. They have also registered the previous seven h2h wins, and have conceded a total of just three goals from the prior ten h2h battles.
Furthermore, Kayserispor are placed second to last in the league table, while their opposite number are placed just below toppers Sivasspor. And finally, and importantly, Kayserispor have conceded the most number of goals in the competition.
Considering all these factors, expect the top-tier Istanbul Basaksehir to emerge victorious against the lowly Kayserispor.
