Konyaspor were 2-1 winners against relegation candidates BB Erzurumspor overnight, but made hard work of their gritty victory and had VAR review to thank for avoiding a stoppage-time penalty - substitute Hasan Hatipoglu's spot-kick was cancelled out.
That's precisely the type of encouragement Ankaragucu need here, after winning four of their last five matches - including title challengers Galatasaray and another hard-earned clean sheet overnight to shut out Antalyaspor.
Prediction:Both teams to score.
GENCLERBIRLIGI VS ERZURUMSPOR.
After three consecutive 2-1 win (Fenerbahce, Kasimpasa and Alanyaspor), Ozcan Bizati's Genclerbirligi has done well to continually claw their way from a precarious situation in the relegation zone.
Up next is one of their drop zone rivals in 20th placed BB Erzurumspor, who are three points adrift and have played a game more (31) by comparison.
It makes this midweek encounter even more important for both: the hosts can climb out of the dreaded drop positions with a fourth successive win, assuming one of Kayserispor, Ankaragucu Malatyaspor, relinquish points.
Prediction:Both teams to score with over 2.5goals.
