Trabzonspor vs Denizlispor
Turkey Super Lig
Date: Thursday, 4 February 2021
Kick-Off at 16.00 UK
Venue: Medical Park Stadyumu, Trabzon.
Trabzon broke into the top-five in the Turkish Super Lig standings thanks to a marvellous spell of form that has led them to four straight wins across competitions. They will have a great opportunity to make it five on the spin on Thursday afternoon when Karadeniz Firtinasi play host to the rock-bottomed Denizlispor in the last game of the mid-week round.
Abdullah Avci’s men clinched back-to-back impressive away wins over the likes of Istanbul Basaksehir and Besiktas. They’ve scored at least two goals in each of the last four games in all competitions. Avci has a very talented group of players in the final third, led by the likes of Anthony Nwakaeme and Benik Afobe. They should have plenty of room to deliver here against one of the weakest defensive teams in the division.
Trabzonspor vs Denizlispor Head-to-head
Trabzon have been by far the more successful side in the history of this match-up. They won 34, drew 12, and lost 13 of 59 meetings with Horozlar.
Denizli are, however, unbeaten in the last three clashes against Karadeniz Firtinasi, a streak that includes this season’s goalless draw at Denizli Ataturk Stadyumu.
Just one of the last four head to head affairs has seen three or more goals.
Trabzonspor vs Denizlispor Prediction
The visitors sit at the very foot of the Super Lig standings going into this tie. Nevertheless, they managed to snatch the fourth win of the season on Sunday, beating Goztepe 2-1 on the home patch. The victory market a super-successful debut on the team’s bench for Hakan Kutlu. The managerial change brought a much-needed glimmer of hope into the side’s dressing room. Can they do much to back it up and avoid a defeat against the red-hot Trabzon, though?
The quality is on Trabzon’s side and we would be very surprised to see any other scenario but the home win here. However, since each of the last five games Trabzonspor played saw goals at both ends, we can expect the visitors to get on the scoresheet here. The Home win & Both Teams To Score is thus the standout pick at the odds of 3.25.
