Turkish Super Lig
Date: Monday, 29 April 2019
Kick-Off 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Yeni Malatya Stadyumu (Malatya).
Mid-table rivals Yeni Malatyaspor and Kasimpasa are set to lock horns in the last fixture of the 30th round of Super Lig on Monday afternoon. Teams are lock on39 points coming into the fixture and practically have nowhere to go in remaining five rounds of the competition.
Neither of two sides will head into the match high on confidence, though. The hosts suffered a tough 2-5 defeat to heavyweights Galatasaray in the return fixture of their Cup semi-final tie. They thus ruined the superb defensive job from the first leg which saw Erol Bulut’s side hold Cimbom to a goalless draw away in Istanbul.
It was the third defeat in last four games in all competitions for Tigers of the East. They just failed to keep things quiet at the back lately having shipped 11 goals in past four matches in all competitions. Can Bulut find the way to stop his team’s unpleasant run here against Kasimpasa?
Yeni Malatyaspor vs Kasimpasa: Head-to-head
Teams will lock horns only for the fourth time on Monday afternoon.
Kasimpasa won two and drew one of past three meetings with Tigers of the East.
The run includes a comprehensive 3-0 victory for Apaches in the first part of the season back in late-November last year.
Yeni Malatyaspor vs Kasimpasa: Prediction
Kasimpasa played hot and cold throughout the season. They seemed to have caught the wanted rhythm with back-to-back wins over Akhisarspor (2-3) and Erzurumspor BB (2-1), but Mustafa Denizli’s side went on to claim just one point from past two league rounds.
They fell 1-0 away at Antalyaspor before playing only a 1-1 draw at home to Bursaspor last Friday. Apaches are clearly struggling for goals without their main predator Mbaye Diagne who made a Galatasaray move this winter after scoring 20 goals for Kasimpasa in the first half of the season.
Malatya generally played very well in front of the home crowd throughout the entire season basically. They failed to score just once in last ten league matches on the home patch. Knowing about their defensive vulnerabilities in recent games, we have to go for goals at both ends at 1.57 odds. As for the outcome, draw is the most likable of three and we will back it at the odds of 3.40.
