Trabzonspor vs Antalyaspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Friday, 5 April 2019
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Medical Park Stadyumu (Trabzon).
Trabzonspor are enjoying an overwhelming campaign in this term of Super Lig. They currently hold the sky-high 4th position in the league ladder and will most likely play Europa League football next season.
Karadeniz Firtinasi are six points clear off 5th-placed Yeni Malatyaspor. At the same time, they are four points shy of Besiktas in third place and a win here would be a massive step towards securing the op-four finish.
The team led by Unal Karaman plays exceptionally well on the home patch. Trabzon won 8, drew 2 and lost 3 of 13 home outings so far in the season.
They thus have to be considered clear favourites coming face to face with Antalyaspor in the first match of 27th round on Friday evening at Medical Park Stadyumu.
Trabzonspor vs Antalyaspor: Head-to-head
The head to head stats also greatly favour the hosts here.
Trabzonspor won 22, drew 6 and lost only 2 of 28 home clashes with Scorpions.
Karadeniz Firtinasi won three and drew one of last four meetings with Antalyaspor.
Teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they met each other in this term of Super Lig back in October last year.
Trabzonspor vs Antalyaspor: Prediction
The visitors are also enjoying a fine overall campaign in this term of Super Lig. They are miles away from the relegation scrap sitting comfortable at 7th place of the league ladder. They ended a dreadful streak of two tough losses in a row by beating Alanyaspor 3-0 at home in the previous round (before the international break).
Nevertheless, we can expect Antalya’s defensive line to be on a huge pressure here by top-quality strikers of Trabzon’s. The visitors previously shipped nine goals in back-to-back losses to Ankaragucu and Galatasaray.
It will be the music to the ears of Hugo Rodallega and Anthony Nwakaeme who are capable of causing troubles to any defensive line in the competition. Trabzon have the home record, H2H record as well as form on their side which is why the home win should be a banker pick at the odds of 1.50.
