Sivasspor vs Erzurumspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 16 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Yeni Sivas 4 Eylul Stadyumu (Sivas).
Siva ended the two-loss streak with a fine display away at Spor Toto Akhisar Belediye Stadyumu where they drew 1-1 to Akigo before the international break.
Sivasspor were in control throughout most of the affair but got unlucky to concede an equalizer eight minutes from time.
Can they pick up the second win of the season on Sunday afternoon when league new boys Erzurum come to visit Yeni Sivas 4 Eylul Stadyumu?
Erzurumspor instantly started to feel the strength of a top flight football conceding six goals in opening two games of the campaign. They did recover in following two ties, but the attacking line failed to follow defensive rise.
Mehmet Altiparmak’s men shipped just one goal in past two matches, but they scored none, meaning they only have one point after four rounds.
Bosnian keeper Ibrahim Sehic is proving out to be a fantastic addition to team’s squad and he could be Erzurum’s biggest strength of this travel. Sehic skipped opening two outings, but his first appearance instantly brought a clean sheet for the team.

The two sides did not have the opportunity to take on each other in the past.
Sivasspor vs Erzurumspor Prediction
Sivasspor are considered favourites to win here, but their recent form does not quite promise an easy job against the league newcomers. Erzurum will park the bus and wait for their chances from counter-attacks which is why Under 2.5 goals FT looks to be the best of betting options here.
The visitors were quite tough to break down in last two rounds and they shipped just one goal in a narrow defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir before the international break.
On the other side, we have to say Erzurum did little at the opposite end of the pitch, failing to find the back of the net in any of last two outings. Since Yigidos are generally tough to beat on the home patch, we will alternatively back the hosts to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.62 here.
