Trabzonspor vs Goztepe
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 22 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Medical Park Stadyumu (Trabzon).
Saturday’s action of the Turkish Super Lig 6th round is going to be wrapped up with the clash between Trabzonspor and Goztepe.
Home side wants to be competitive for the very top of the table, but they cannot be satisfied with their start of the campaign. Trabzonspor picked up seven points in five matches and they’ve already suffered two defeats.
Although Hugo Rodallega and the lads have been excellent when playing at home, they should be looking to improve their away performances.
The hosts have been very productive in front of the oppositions’ goal, but they need to tighten up their defensive line. In order to keep up the good home form and stay in the race for the top of the table, Trabzonspor shouldn’t spill the point in this one.
After a pretty successful season where they managed to stay away from the trouble, Goztepe opened the current one by suffering two straight defeats. However, in the last three rounds they managed to celebrate twice and stay around the middle of the table.
Goztepe have been involved in low scoring matches as Bayram Bektas’ side scored just four times, and thanks only to their solid defence they remained in the safe zone.
The visitors are three points above the red line, but they need to start scoring more in order to stay out of the trouble.
Trabzonspor vs Goztepe: Head-to-head
- Both teams managed to celebrate a win each in their last four head to head clashes.
- However after the visitors’ come back to the top flight last season, Trabzonspor managed to snatch just a point.
- Their clashes have usually been pretty efficient ones.
Trabzonspor vs Goztepe: Prediction
The hosts are looking very confident when playing at home and they have the chance of snatching another victory in front of their crowd. We believe that Trabzonspor are capable of continuing their winning streak at Medical Park Stadyumu.
Although the visitors are playing pretty tight football, they are facing the team which is forcing an attacking style of play. This one should be in accordance with their tradition and we should be able to see at least three goals.
