Konyaspor vs Yeni Malatyaspor

Our Monday night preview in the Turkish Super Lig (this can become a thing!) is a mid-table clash between Konyaspor and Yeni Malatyaspor in a 6pm BST kick-off at the Konya Buyuksehir Stadium. Both sides have had satisfactory starts to the season but it feels like their form is still finely balanced. A win or loss here could send them down two very different paths so it's crucial they both get something from this game.

Konyaspor are in 7th place in the Turkish top flight and have the potential to move into 2nd place with a resounding win here. Manager Aykut Kocaman will be pleased with his team's displays so far this season after their 8th placed finish last season. Three wins on the bounce has got the team morale buzzing and you get the impression a victory here could really push that momentum. An undefeated record at home offers quiet confidence heading into this game.

Yeni Malatyaspor might be positioned slightly lower in the table than their opponents today in 10th place but only 2 points separate the two teams. Inconsistency has been their biggest problem over recent games with 2 wins, 1 draw, and 3 defeats coming over the past 6 matches. You just don't know which Yeni side will turn up. Only four teams boast a worse away record too so this will be a game that will create anxiety for them in the build-up.

I'm confident this game will have goals. Konyaspor have scored 10 in their past 7 league games and Yeni have bagged 16 goals in 7 matches. Initially, I was tempted to back a score draw but I just don't have enough faith in Yeni to get a result on the road against a team that are so tough to break down on their own patch. I think a narrow home win seems like the best option. Trust the ELO ratings!
