Antalyaspor vs Kasimpasa

The weekly Monday preview in the Turkish Super Lig covers the game between Antalyaspor versus Kasimpasa that is due to kick-off at 5pm GMT at the Antalya Arena. Both teams are deeply involved in a relegation battle this season so this match can be considered one of those daunting "six-pointers". Who will prevail as the winners or will these do grind out a draw?

Antalyaspor are currently in 16th place and 1 point from safety in the top flight of Turkish football. Manager Tamer Tuna will see this game as an opportunity to use the game in hand his team possesses to take all 3 points and potentially move up to 14th in the table and back in touch with the mid-table sides. Only 1 win from their 10 home league games this season suggests they're not nailed on to win this one but they are undefeated in their last 6 matches so is there some resilience building within this squad?

Kasimpasa find themselves in a slightly more dire situation than their opponents for this game. Manager Fuat Capa has seen his team struggle to get results both home and away this season. The club is down in 17th place and 4 points adrift of the safety zone. It becomes a huge mental disadvantage when you know even if you win you'll still be stuck in the relegation zone. Heading into an away game like this that's going to be a tricky obstacle to overcome. It's also now 6 league matches without a win so is the hope fading from this team?

I think I have to go with both the odds, ELO ratings, and statistics here to back the home team for a win. Antalyaspor actually seem like they have some fight left in them. The number of draws they are getting could be a problem as we get down to the wire but their ability to avoid defeat recently could prove vital. Kasimpasa on the other hand look like a side short on confidence and lacking results. It's a dangerous combination.

@black_baar and @vratislav, do you think this game will deliver a home win? What about the other game that's scheduled for later today?
