Antalyaspor form and stats

Overall Super Lig stats at home this season for Antalyaspor are 5-4-3 (wins-draw-losses). Antalyaspor haven’t lost a league-game in ten attempts regardless of arena, a great achievement. Their last loss was the fixture versus Hatayspor, 59 days ago. Three draws from their last three home games means a steady supply of points here at Antalya Stadyumu, but a victory now would be sweet for Antalyaspor.

Antalyaspor manager E. Yanal and his team return home after a 0-0 draw away versus Gazişehir Gaziantep (placed 7th) in the Super Lig. Before that, Antalyaspor drew at home versus Yeni Malatyaspor.

This is expected to be a close game, with Antalyaspor perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Antalyaspor as a small favourite), we find seven games. Antalyaspor has won two of these, drawn two and lost three.

Antalyaspor are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 14 goals in 12 games. Antalyaspor's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 15 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.

İstanbul Başakşehir form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for İstanbul Başakşehir, who have the fewest clean sheets (3) in Super Lig, so far with only 10 points returning home. The records show 3-1-8 (win-draw-lose). With the İstanbul Başakşehir losing streak of five defeats in a row, regardless of arena, optimism is low and sinking. The pressure to perform on the road is increasing on A. Kocaman, the Başakşehir manager, as the last three away games were defeats.

Başakşehir's previous game was their home loss versus Trabzonspor (0-1). It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Goztepe wasn't a success with a 1-2 loss.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found eleven similar matches played by Başakşehir in our archives, and the results are: three wins for İstanbul Başakşehir, four draws and four defeats.

A quick return to home after this game, as Başakşehir are hosting Konyaspor in the Super Lig only four days away.

The visitors have scored 11 goals from 12 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Başakşehir have conceded 24 goals in these games.
