Gençlerbirliği form and stats

The story so far in the Super Lig for Gençlerbirliği at their home stadium (Eryaman Stadyumu) is 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats. Hopes of three in a row are alive for Gençlerbirliği after consecutive victories at their own ground.

No payout for Gençlerbirliği in their previous match, an away game at Galatasaray that ended in defeat 0-6. Previous to that game, a home match hosting Hatayspor in a game that was won 3-1.

Gençlerbirliği were outplayed and humiliated in their previous game, as mentioned in the paragraph above. They will need to reinstall their confidence before this one.

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

The manager M. Işik will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Goztepe in only four days.

A decent goal production from Gençlerbirliği in their home games so far, with 12 goals from 8 league matches. It's worth mentioning that 7 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 13 goals have been conceded.
