Konyaspor vs Ankaragucu
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 18 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:15 UK / 18:15 CET
Venue: Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadium (Konya).
Konyaspor had a less than exciting campaign in the previous season and consequently had to be content with an eighth-place finish in the table. The hosts were also held to a draw on seventeen occasions, which was the most by any side last time out.
Ankaragucu were in for a disappointing season as well and ended their respective campaign in the bottom half of the table. The squad were three points shy of falling into the relegation zone and managed not more than eleven wins from their overall clashes.
Neither side were a dominant force in the previous edition and were far from impressive in their warm-up matches as well. However, given the home advantage that Konyaspor will be enjoying, a win for Ankaragucu is definitely looking bleak.
Konyaspor vs Ankaragucu Head to head (h2h)
- Seven out of their previous ten games have seen Konyaspor taste success.
- Their last encounter finished in a stalemate.
- Ankaragucu have kept just two clean sheets in their last five meetings, while Konyaspor have recorded four.
- Only one out of their previous six matchups have seen both teams get their names on the scoresheet.
Konyaspor vs Ankaragucu Prediction
The home team have fared a lot better at home, than on the road, and have admitted defeat just twice in their last twelve games on home soil. On the other hand, Ankaragucu have struggled in their outings and have come out on top just once in their last five.
More importantly, it needs saying that the visitors have managed to walk away with the bragging rights just twice from their all-time visits to this venue. Considering that Konyaspor have also been securing the victory here for the last two matchups in a row, an opening game defeat for Ankaragua is certainly looming large.
Three out of the previous five meetings between the two sides here have seen Konyaspor win, and that too without conceding. With the away side failing to find the back of the net in their last four head to head clashes as well, expect Konyaspor to wrap things up with less than 2.5 goals on the scorecards.
