Competition: Turkey Super Lig
Competition: Sun 18.October
Match begins: 13:00 (UTC)
Venue: Atatürk Olimpiyat Stadı (76092 seats)

It's early days in the Super Lig and both Fatih Karagümrük and Kasımpaşa are still hoping for a flying start in order to set the tone for the season. Three points can make a big difference at this stage.

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

These teams are located so close to each other that their supporters eat in the same restaurants, hang out at the same night clubs and give birth at the same hospitals. This means added importance to the game and a vibrant atmosphere.

Fatih Karagümrük form and stats

As mentioned below, Fatih Karagümrük are feasting on a winning streak here so far with maximum points from their first 2 Super Lig games. The Fatih Karagümrük fans aren't used to losing league-games here at Atatürk Olimpiyat Stadı and will expect new points from this game. Fatih Karagümrük has played twelve games in a row here without a defeat.

No payout for Karagümrük in their previous match, an away game at Fenerbahce that ended in defeat 1-2. Before that, Karagümrük had a home game versus Istanbul Basaksehir which ended with a victory 2-0.

The penalty miss from Erik Sabo in the defeat against Fenerbahce was a source of irritation for some fans, but these things happen.

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Karagümrük have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found five matches with the results: Won two, drawn one and lost two.

Fatih Karagümrük has scored 5 goals so far and conceded 0 goals from 2 home games. These are numbers from the league only.

Kasımpaşa form and stats

It's not happening yet for Kasımpaşa on their Super Lig travels, with zero points from their first 2 away games. Maybe today will be different? The travelling fans think it's time that their travel expenses are covered with some points now, as Kasımpaşa have lost on their last two travels.

The supporters enjoyed Kasımpaşa's previous game versus Galatasaray (placed 4th), a Super Lig 1-0 win played at home. Preceding that game, the 0-1 loss visiting Hatayspor's place.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Kasımpaşa playing away and similar expectations, we found ten relevant matches. Results were two Kasımpaşa wins, four draws and four defeats.

0 goals so far away for Kasımpaşa, while their defence has allowed the opposition to score 2. All from 2 league matches away.
