Sivasspor vs Alanyaspor
Turkey – Süper Lig
Date: Saturday, 12 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Yeni 4 Eylül Stadyumu.
Both these teams were amongst the top performers of the Super Lig the last season, and had finished in the upper tier of the league table – thus qualifying for the continental competitions.
While they did miss out on tickets to the Champions League, securing tickets to the Europa League in such competitive conditions was no mean feat.
They are back to repeat their heroics this campaign as well – or maybe outdo themselves and challenge the likes of Basaksehir and Trabzonspor for the top two spots.
However, a strong start is kind of mandatory for that to happen, and either squad will try their best to post the win this weekend.
Even more than the three points, what’s going to matter more is the fact that the victor of this upcoming game will have the confidence of having started their season with a strong performance against a quality opponent.
Considering the determination of both teams for the win, coupled with their offensive potential – expect a goal-fest this weekend.

Sivasspor vs Alanyaspor: Prediction
The Yigidos were unbeaten in 19 of their preceding 22 overall match-ups at home, and in the process, they had also gone through a six-game winning run, and also went through a stretch of 15 unbeaten match-ups from 16 attempts.
Going on, they also have a 100% unbeaten record at home, and they never once had failed to score goals in such match-up.
Meanwhile, their counterparts were invincible in 10 of their preceding 13 overall fixtures, and they also had won four of their former five league games.
Moreover, the last season, Cagdas Atan’s men had scored the most number of goals in the whole league, barring the top two teams.
Taking into account these stats – which signify the threat either team possesses in attack, along with the determination of the squads to open their campaign with a strong win – expect a high-scoring thriller this weekend.
