Balıkesirspor form and stats

With 2 1. Lig wins, 0 draws and 4 defeats from their home games, Balıkesirspor are certainly not brimming with confidence. When Balıkesirspor hosts teams that live in the bottom of the table (like Balıkesirspor, Altnordu, Keciorengucu, Boluspor, Menemen Belediyespor and Genclerbirligi), they have won 2 of 3 matches! Problems are piling up for Balıkesirspor as they are struggling in their away games as well, taking their total losing streak to a running total of seven games. This streak could be one for the history books.

The fans are hoping that Balıkesirspor will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 1-2 away loss in the 1. Lig game against Menemen Belediyespor (placed 13th).

Preceding that match was the home game against Adanaspor that was lost 1-2.

Balıkesirspor aren't scoring a lot here at Balıkesir Atatürk Stadyumu in the league, with only 4 goals from 6 games. Balıkesirspor's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 8 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above. Balıkesirspor has at home met teams with this table position (low), three times. It has ended with less than 2.5 goals 2 of 3 times.

Manisa BBSK form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Manisa BBSK so far with only 6 points returning home. The records show 2-0-5 (win-draw-lose). Bitter travels for Manisa BBSK as they have lost five games in a row away from home. The last time they avoided an away-from-home loss was the Genclerbirligi match.

Manisa had fun at their own home (Balıkesir Atatürk Stadyumu) last time out, beating Altnordu 1-0. D. Diallo scored.

A 2-2 draw was the result before that, hosting Boluspor.

The visitors will be packing their bags again in only four days as another away game awaits: The Turkish Cup trip to Altay.

Manisa are scoring more than one goal per away game on average, having accumulated 10 away goals from 7 games (in the league). Manisa have conceded 12 goals in these games.
