Prediction and odds for the game: Fenerbahce (2/9) v Kayserispor (9/1)
We are backing the over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 2/5
When: Friday 20th March 2020, Kick-off 5 PM
Where: Sukru Saracoglu Stadium
On Friday evening, Fenerbahce host Kayserispor, as the home side look to revive their chances of claiming a European spot in the Turkish Super Lig.
The home side has endured an underwhelming campaign so far in the Super Lig. The Yellow Canaries head into this clash on the back of a seven-game winless run in the top-flight. Last time out, the home side suffered a 1-0 defeat at Konyaspor. The poor run of form has left Fener seventh place in the table, nine points outside the European places in the Turkish top-flight.
Fenerbahce’s main problem of late has been that they have struggled defensively, conceding at least two goals in four of their last five matches in the Super Lig. Their defensive generosity has led to four of their last five league matches producing over 2.5 goals.
Fenerbahce have suffered just one home defeat in their last eight home games in the Super Lig. However, they have failed to win in three league matches on home soil.
The home side has only failed to score once in their last 25 home matches in the Turkish Super Liga. They have scored at least two goals in six of their last eight matches on home soil.
The visitors are currently rock bottom of the Turkish Super Lig table. However, they are just three points from the safety of 15th place. An unlikely victory in this clash would certainly boost their survival hopes.
A recent decent run consisting of three wins and a draw in their last five games has given them real hope that they could just beat the drop to the second tier this season. Last time out Kayserispor recorded a potentially vital 2-1 win over relegation rivals Yeni Malatyaspor.
Their form may have improved in recent weeks, but the visitor’s recent record on their travels in the Turkish Super Lig has been woeful. They have now won just once in their last 15 away games in the Turkish top-flight. They have also suffered ten defeats in their last 11 away matches. The fact that they have conceded at least two goals in ten of their last 11 league matches on their travels has been a big contributing factor.
The visitors have won four of the last six meetings with Fenerbahce, suffering just one defeat in the process.
Both teams head into this game on poor runs of form in the Turkish Super Lig. However, Fenerbahce are good on home soil, while the visitors are poor travellers in the Turkish Super Lig. With that in mind, we are backing the home win. The other bet we are recommending is the over 2.5 goals scored, as Fenerbahce’s recent league matches have been high-scoring.
Verdict: We are backing the over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 2/5 and/or the home win at odds of 2/9. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
