Super Lig Predictions > Sep 27th - 30th

Recommended Posts

Galatasaray - Fenerbahce match will be a very tough and tense match. Red card is probable. Isla will be back and probably play. However, Left back and centre back will be still problematic for Fenerbahce. Rodrigues wont play. Tolga Cigerci(central midfielder) may play as a left winger instead. May be Victor Moses who is newly recovered from injury. 

Younes Belhanda is injured for Galatsaray, but he may play with a special mask. 

With home side advantage and missings for Fenerbahce, Galatasaray's chance of winning is more probable. However, it is big derby and anything can happen.

Gaziantep vs Goztepe

The Turkish Super Lig action continues into today with early pace setters Gaziantep hosting the struggling Goztepe in a 6pm BST kick-off at the Gaziantep Arena. Victory for the home side here would see them move up to 2nd in the table taking advantage of Fenerbahce dropping points away to their arch rivals Galatasaray in their hard-fought 0-0 draw this weekend.

Gaziantep currently sit in 3rd place with 10 points from their 5 league games so far. Marius Sumudica is doing sterling work as the manager of the club. It's now 4 games won in a row in all competitions and six matches undefeated for this team that is exceeding all expectations. The club only earned promotion in 5th place from the second tier last season so this early season run of form that has included a heroic 3-2 victory over giants Besiktas is a real story.

Goztepe travel to Gaziantep for this game knowing that their current form cannot continue much longer without having a seriously detrimental impact on their season. Manager Tamer Tuna has only seen his team win 1 of their 5 league games so far leaving the club in an ominous 14th place. Losing tonight will likely see them drop into the relegation zone. Form has improved over recent games after a slow start. The club has now won three games on the bounce with a clean sheet kept in all three matches. It's now 5 games in all competitions undefeated with four clean sheets kept in those matches. Have they turned a corner?

Initially, I thought this would be a case of backing the home team but I really feel the visiting side are starting to build momentum. Goztepe have sorted their defensive issues right out and the barrage of clean sheets earned over their past few games has to be commended. They'll be tough to break down and even though Gaziantep are high in the league they did fail the big test against Fenerbahce earlier in the season so pressure from a superior team might break them? Still, they have a 100% record at home in the league and Goztepe haven't won away yet. I think a draw no bet option on Goztepe could be the most sensible choice here. @black_baar, what do you think mate?

Yeah, goztepe seems to be improved lately. Late transfer Mossoro fitted very well to the team. I wouldnt expect his contribution to the team so well this early. Their last win over Konyaspor at their home stadium with 10 players counts. However, their win against Yozgatspor at the cup game doesnt mean anything since the quality difference with lower league teams are quite high.

I see the improvement of Gaziantep team much more reliable than Goztepe's. The team is more compact now than it was at Fenerbahce's match. With the home side advantage, I see Gaziantep's chance better than Goztepe. Odds around 2.55 for home team represents value in my opinion.
