Yeni Malatyaspor vs Genclerbirligi
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 4 July 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Yeni Malatya Stadyumu.
Both teams are direct competitors in their race to safety from the relegation line. They are separated by just three points, and are hanging by a thread above the cut-off. On top of that, they are being chased by teams that are in much better form.
Suffice it to say, this is a must-win game for either, and especially so considering that the season is about to end. Taking into account the struggling defenses from either side as well, it’s deduced that we are in line for a goal-fest this weekend.
Yeni Malatyaspor vs Genclerbirligi: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture was a six-goal thriller, with both teams scoring three goals each.
- The Red and Black are yet to post a league win against this opponent.
- In fact, the last victory they had registered came back in 2011, and that too in the Turkish Cup.
- Not once have they kept a clean sheet in Super Lig games.
- At this venue, the hosts have a 100% winning record.
Yeni Malatyaspor vs Genclerbirligi: Prediction
The Red and Black are an inexperienced bunch of players, as they gained promotion to this top flight just this last season, while their counterparts have been a major presence in the Super Lig for quite some years.
On top of that, Hikmet Karaman’s men have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes at home, and not once have they failed to score against this rival in league games. They also have been unbeaten in face-to-face matches since 2011 as well.
Considering these stats, it’s estimated that Yeni Malatyaspor are on course to register a winning performance. Going on, understand that this is a do-or-die game for both. Three points are a must, and if they fail to do that, the squads are risking relegation.
As such, expect mistakes to be high in this high-pressure fixture, and as a result, anticipate a lot of goals as well.
