ANTALYASPOR V GOZTEPE
Antalyaspor managed to hold Karagumruk to a 2-2 draw last time out. They got the point thanks to a stoppage time goal by their star winger Amilton. Injuries to his wingers have had a massive impact on Yenal's team's ability to counterattack. They're also not as solid at the back as they were a few weeks ago, as Yenal's best defender Sari is also injured. Expect a cautious display from the Mediterranean side.
Goztepe drew with Trabzonspor last time out. Karaman's side defended very deep in first half, frustrated Trabzonspor and then once they went up, they played a solid counter-attacking football. Had it not been for a late, late goal, they'd have left with three points. Karaman is always cautious when playing away, so his side will also play a low tempo game.
Prediction: Both teams to score
KONYASPOR V KARAGUMRUK
Konyaspor were beaten 1-0 by Galatasaray last time out. They defended really well and could have easily gotten a point had it not been for a momentary lapse of concentration in the dying minutes of the game. Palut's strategy, home and away, is defending not in numbers and deep, but aggressively and all across the pitch. That is one of the reasons why they have so many home draws. Against a Karagumruk side that boasts a lot of talent, Palut and Konyaspor would be content with a point.
Karagumruk were held to a draw by Antalyaspor last time out. The COVID wave that hit the club really hard has finally come to an end, and things are getting back to normal. Farioli likes his teams to play entertaining, high tempo, attacking football. Against Konyaspor, however, they will struggle to increase the tempo, and thereby will not be able to create many chances.
Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
