Yeni Malatyaspor vs Gaziantep
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 25 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Yeni Malatya Stadyumu (Malatya)
The home team has lost all hopes of getting through to the safe side of the table. They are currently on a losing streak which has prevented them from reaching that goal. Even if they win this one, the head to head stats will be crucial in determining their future.
The visitors are going through one of their best spells this season. They are unbeaten in seven league games on the trot. This includes mainly draws in both home and away fixtures. Another highlight of their performance during this period is that they have scored in all nine of their last ten games in this competition.

- Both those games here had fewer than 2.5 goals too.
Yeni Malatyaspor vs Gaziantep: Prediction
Yeni has one of the poorest graphs compared to last season. They finished fifth in the 2018-19 season and are currently looking at relegation to the second division. They are on a losing streak which has hit their morale hardly.
On the other hand, Gaziantep has done well considering this is their first season in the top flight. Even though the majority of their games were drawn they managed to finish mid-table. The head to head stats does not give either of these sides an upper hand. So I think we can see a draw on Friday just like the reverse leg.
The away team needs to improve their backline as soon as possible. They have lost the majority of points because they conceded goals at the crucial points in the game. That is the main reason for many more draws compared to wins. Even though Yeni has not scored in two previous games, half of their total goal came in home matches. So I am backing the game to draw with both sides scoring.
