Konyaspor vs Goztepe
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 10.30 UK/ 11.30 CET
Venue: Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadium (Konya).
Konyaspor may look unsteady on the road, but they have been pulling good performances at home recently.
And it’s a necessity for them since it has become their chief source for points. Right now, they have got a good opportunity to overcome Yeni Malatyaspor, who is currently in the fifth position. More than going above Yeni, what must be further motivating them would be the fact that has a window to get into the European spots.
Yeni is going against Basaksehir, and there would be no better time for Konyaspor to implement this scheme.
Goztepe seems an almost perfect candidate at this time. They are just a point and spot above the relegation line and are the only team that has lost ten or more away games in the league. Moreover, all through this season, they have managed just three wins away from home.
Konyaspor vs Goztepe Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last five wins in a row went to the team at home.
- The away teams failed to score in four of the last six meetings.
- An away team recorded a win last in 2001.
- Every encounter at this venue in this decade had the hosts finding the back of the net.
Konyaspor vs Goztepe Prediction
The biggest inspiration for Konyaspor would be the bad form that has taken hold of Yeni Malatyaspor. The former is just below Yeni in the league table and shares the same points. Since the latter is going against the best team in the league, it’s a golden opportunity for Konyaspor to bypass them and take a closer step towards their European dream.
With the above setting in place, consider that Konyaspor is at home, and is going against a team that is battling relegation. Moreover, the last five h2h wins have gone for the teams at home, and importantly, the last time Goztepe won against this opponent at this venue, was back in 2001.
Goztepe also lost their last four away games in a row, and conceded two or more in four of their last five, whereas Konyaspor was unbeaten in five of their last six home ties, and won four of these as well. Also, keep in mind that the team managed to score two or more goals in these four fixtures as well.
Taking all this into account, a win for the hosts is the best pick, and since they are desperate for the three points, we believe we can see an early goal.
