Trabzonspor vs Erzurumspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Monday, 22 October 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Medical Park Stadyumu (Trabzon).
Trabzonspor look to have found the winning formula before the international break as they bagged an impressive seven-goal tally in back-to-back wins over Kasimpasa and Akhisarspor to jump into the fifth place of the Super Lig standings. They’ll have a nice opportunity to make it three on the spin on Monday evening when they are to face the rock-bottomed Erzurumspor in the last game of the round at Medical Park Stadyumu.
Unal Karaman has a very interesting attacking line-up led by red-hot veterans Hugo Rodallega and Burak Yilmaz. This duo combined nine goals in eight matches of the season so far for Karadeniz Firtinasi and they will no doubts be the main threat to Erzurumspor’s goal on Monday night.
Trabzonspor vs Erzurumspor: Head-to-head
The two sides will take on each other for the first time ever in a league clash, following Erzurum’s maiden campaign in the top flight of Turkish football.
They met in the previous term of Turkish Cup, though, as Trabzon picked up two comprehensive victories with a 9-1 goal difference along the way.
Trabzonspor vs Erzurumspor: Prediction
Erzurum managed their inaugural elite class victory two weeks ago when they dispatched Alanyaspor 1-0 at Kazim Karabekir Stayumu. It was Taylan Antalyali who made the difference netting the only goal of the game nine minutes after the interval.
However, Mehmet Ozdilek’s men still sit at the rock-bottom of the league ladder with five points from eight games and they seem doomed to the relegation battle until the very end of the season.
Given Erzurum are about to face a red-hot attacking line of Trabzon’s here, it’s really hard to see anything else but a convincing home victory upcoming here. Karadeniz Firtinasi are 1.44 to win, which does look to be a banker bet based on their current form. Braver tipsters can back the hosts to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the odds of 2.20.
