Konyaspor vs Trabzonspor Prediction
Konyaspor were on the road the last match-day, against tough contenders Istanbul Basaksehir. In spite of this heavy challenge, they managed to record a 1-1 draw.
Meanwhile, Trabzonspor failed to take advantage of their home status the previous game week in the Super Lig, as they were defeated 1-2 by Denizlispor.
This Monday, right away take into account the sense of hurt by Trabzonspor due to their unexpected defeat at home in the last round, and their need to make amends.
On top of that, consider the respective standings of the teams in the league table. Both come from different ends of standings – Trabzonspor are part of the top-most tier, in contention to get into Europe at the end of the season, while Konyaspor are running scared to avoid getting the boot.
Moreover, consider the current form of both teams. Konyaspor are on an embarrassing streak of ten winless games, and have scored a total of just five goals from these five fixtures. At home, they are winless in their last five attempts, and have recorded just two goals from these five appearances.
On the other hand, Trabzonspor had won three of the previous five overall games, of which one loss had come in the Europa. They were also unbeaten in six of their last nine fixtures.
On the road, disregarding Europa matches, the team have lost just once this whole season – and it had come against the current topper of the table – Sivasspor.
Finally, it’s been three years since Konyaspor have recorded a league win against this opponent, while they have failed to keep a clean sheet in such games in 11 of the last 14 attempts.
Taking into account all these observations, rightfully expect Trabzonspor to have the upper hand this Monday, and to show that domination on the pitch, as well as the result.
