Yeni Malatyaspor vs Fenerbahce
Turkey Super Lig
Date: Thursday, 8 April 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Yeni Malatya Stadyumu, Malatya.
Fenerbahce took advantage of Besiktas’ and Galatasaray’s weekend slip-ups to move up to the second place in the Super Lig standings. They closed the gap on table-toppers Besiktas down to two points after edging 1-0 past the rock-bottomed Denizlispor on Monday afternoon. It was not the shiniest of performances for Emre Belozoglu’s troops, but they managed to snatch a super-important three-pointer. Sari Kanaryalar thus returned to winning ways after a shocking loss to Genclerbirligi and a 1-1 draw to Besiktas.
The trip to Malatya probably comes as the best possible moment for Belozoglu and his men. Tiger of the East have been nowhere near their best form lately. They dropped down to the relegation scrap after a run of eleven consecutive league matches without a win. Yeni Malatyaspor took only one point from the last four Super Lig games. They have conceded as many as eight goals in the last three matches against Denizlispor, Gaziantep, and Istanbul Basaksehir.
Yeni Malatyaspor vs Fenerbahce Head-to-head
- Fenerbahce will be highly motivated to get revenge for the most painful defeat they suffered this season.
- Malatya shocked Sari Kanaryalar 0-3 when they last visited Istanbul in mid-December last year.
- Fenerbahce still have a positive head to head record with Tigers of the East but they won only one of the last four matches at Yeni Malatya Stadyumu.
Yeni Malatyaspor vs Fenerbahce Prediction
Fenerbahce returned to the battle for the very top of the standings and they have a tremendous opportunity to take advantage of Malatya’s horrendous spell of form and snatch the second consecutive league win on Thursday. We sincerely doubt the visitors will fail to grab this chance since their rivals have been way too easy to break down lately.
Malatya shipped at least two goals in each of the last three league outings. The away win seems to be a banker bet at the odds of 1.70 under these circumstances. We can hardly imagine a low-scoring contest here, especially if we know that three of the last four H2H games have seen at least three goals scored. The Over 2.5 goals FT bet is thus well worth backing at the odds of 1.72.
