Konyaspor vs Antalyaspor Predictions & Match Preview

Konyaspor vs Antalyaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 27th January 2019
Kick-off at 13.00 UK/ 14.00 CET
Venue: Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadium (Konya).

Though both teams are stranded on 28 points each, the recent form cannot be more polarized. Aykut Kokaman’s men have been cruising in their recent match-days and turned in good results after good results. But, their opponents for this tie, seem like haven’t shaken off their vacation mood yet, as a win has eluded them for the seven matches since Christmas Eve.

The Anatolian Eagle will be high in confidence after their home-win against the high-flying Kasimpasa. The Scorpions, on the other hand, faced a disheartening loss against Goztepe, in their Cup game, on the road.

These teams decorate the seventh and eighth spots in the league table. But they have a difference of just one point with the fourth position, which ensures participation in the qualification stages of the Europa League.

Konyaspor vs Antalyaspor Prediction

Akrepler has failed to score in six of their last nine appearances at the venue and has registered just four goals in total. Also, they have not a single win to their name in the long h2h history they share with Anadolu Kartali. Additionally, six of the last seven overall matches and eight of the last ten saw the home-team taking the win.

Also, Aykut Kocaman’s men are unbeaten in their last four overall fixtures, and won their last three at home, in a row. On the other hand, their counterparts are winless in their last seven overall attempts and lost three of their last five away ties. I think the hosts will be taking the three points this Sunday.

Games between these teams have always been low goal-scoring. Six of the total nine at this stadium and 15 of the last 18 ended with under 2.5 match goals. Also, five of the last seven overall h2h ties and the last three at the Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadium saw the hosts scoring exactly one goal. Keeping in line with the trend, I expect the score to be 1-0, in favor of the hosts.

Honestly, whom did you think would win when the Eagles took on the Scorpions?
