Konyaspor vs Istanbul Basaksehir
Turkish Super Lig
Monday, 13 July 2020, Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadium (Konya).

Konyaspor welcome Istanbul Basaksehir on matchday 32 of the 2019/20 Turkish Super Lig in a must win match for two teams for two different reasons.

The team from Konya are 17th in the table and they need 3 points to move out of relegation zone. They are coming on the back of a 1-3 away defeat at Gaziantep.

However, they did manage to win their last home game, which was a narrow 1-0 result against Rizespor, which also stretched their unbeaten run at home to 4 games (2W, 2D).

Basaksehir sit on top of the table with a 4-point clear lead over Trabzonspor, which also means they need 5 points from remaining 3 games to clinch the title.

The Istanbul faithful bagged a comfortable 2-0 win over Denizlispor last time and extended their unbeaten run to 12 games.

Well, this is a team that lost just 3 games all season and 2 of those came in the first two match days of the campaign.

Basaksehir are almost unbeatable, but can Konyaspor make the home form advantage count and spoil the day for title hopefuls ?

Konyaspor vs Istanbul Basaksehir

Basaksehir are unbeaten in Super Lig head-to-head matches versus Konyaspor since 2007, a streak of 16 games with 9 wins and 7 draws.

Earlier this season, they played out a 1-1 stalemate.

Meantime, last season’s corresponding fixture ended in a narrow 1-0 win for Basaksehir.

Goals are at a premium in their duels with only 3 of the last 13 posting over 2.5 goals. Both teams scored on just 4 occasions.

Konyaspor vs Istanbul Basaksehir

A win is evitable for both sides and therefore we are expected to see a closely fought battle at Konya on Monday.

Also, despite the visitors dominating this fixture in recent years, goals were hard to come by and this is why we expect under 2.5 goals from this Turkish Super Lig match.

To sum up, Basaksehir are huge favorites and they have the habit of throwing the kitchen sink at teams sitting in the bottom half of the table. So, away win is up for grabs at healthy 1.90 odd, which I believe is the best and a safe option for this game.
