Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 13.00 UK/ 14.00 CET
Venue: Yeni Malatya Stadyumu (Malatya).
Yeni may be in the top tier, but make no mistake that they are currently one of the worst-performing sides in this league. They have not won a single league tie in their last five attempts, and on top of that they are taking on the best squad in Turkey.
Built upon a stupendous defense, Istanbul has been at the top for quite some time, and even with great teams like Besiktas and Galatasaray in pursuit, the team has managed a considerable safety cushion of points.
Besides being the overall best team, Basaksehir has also managed to become the best of the lot on the road. In fact, they have recorded almost 1.5 times more points than any other team in the whole of Turkish Lig, in away ties.
