Sivasspor vs Yeni Malatyaspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Friday, 8 March 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Yeni Sivas 4 Eylul Stadyumu (Sivas).
Both Sivasspor and Yeni Malatyaspor ruined the good job they’ve done so far in the season with their respective three-loss threads in past three Super Lig rounds. The hosts continued to be efficient in the final third, but they failed miserably to match such displays at the opposite end allowing as many as nine goals during the mentioned streak.
To make things more difficult to explain, Yigidos did not ply the elite opposition along the way. They lost 4-2 to Erzurumspor and 3-2 to Bursaspot on travels as well as 1-2 at home to Antalyaspor. On the positive note, just one of defeats came on the home patch where Sivas generally played much better than on the road throughout the season.

Sivasspor vs Yeni Malatyaspor: Prediction
The visitors advanced to the cup semi-final past Goztepe on penalties (1-1 on aggregate), but they lost three on the spin in Super Lig. Unlike their counterparts, Malatya struggled badly to create in the final third lately as they scored just one goal in past three league affairs.
Tigers of the East won just 3 of 12 away fixtures in the league so far. We this have to fancy the hosts who see this tie as a perfect opportunity to arrest the current slump in form. Sivas won all four home outings against Malatya and they enjoyed a fine home form in this term of Super Lig with 5 wins, 5 draws and just 2 defeats in 12 games.
