Konyaspor vs Yeni Malatyaspor Predictions and Match Preview

Konyaspor vs Yeni Malatyaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 10th February 2019
Kick-off at 10.30 UK/ 11.30 CET
Venue: Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadium (Konya).

A difference of one point, two Europa League spots, and four teams. That’s what the story is, at the top tier of the Turkish Lig. Erol Bulut’s men currently hold the advantage in the points race, but the one-point surplus may not be enough, as they are on the road this week, against a direct rival, Anadolu Kartali.

The match is important for both these teams considering that a win will guarantee a major push towards their objective. Both sets of players will highly prioritize this tie, and survival of this fixture without loss would be the first and foremost task at hand.

Konyaspor vs Yeni Malatyaspor Prediction

In this highly anticipated game, both teams are certainly not to give an inch for the other, and the ultimate objective would be to avoid a loss. The reason being, a loss would bring catastrophic effects in their run to Europe, and risking it for going for the win does not seem rational.

If given a chance to avoid playing, and to settle for a draw, both teams would readily agree. And that’s exactly what I expect to happen come this Sunday. A drawn game.

Both sides will line up giving ample importance to defense and will look to score only if the opportunity presents itself in front of them. The game will surely be a low-scoring one, which has also been the case for their previous encounters.

A goalless draw is ruled out considering the performances the frontlines have pulled out in the last few weeks.

Taking into account all of these observations, the logical deduction is a 1-1 final scoreline.
