Gençlerbirliği form and stats

With 3 Super Lig wins, 3 draws and 6 defeats from their home games, Gençlerbirliği, who have the most conceded goals (45) in Super Lig, are certainly not brimming with confidence. The season ticket holders are starting to dread their visits here at Eryaman Stadyumu, with the home team losing four in a row. They have not avoided a defeat here since the Hatayspor game.

R. Piris Da Motta was the last player to score a league goal for Gençlerbirliği and it's becoming a more and more distant memory as Gençlerbirliği haven't scored in 364 minutes.

Gençlerbirliği lost their last game at Denizlispor (placed 19th) after a 0-1 scoreline. Preceding that match was the home game against Beşiktaş that was lost 0-3.

Gençlerbirliği are traveling soon after this match as the Super Lig match at Gazisehir Gaziantep awaits in four days.

Gençlerbirliği are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 14 goals in 12 games. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Gençlerbirliği have conceded 22 from these games.

Yeni Malatyaspor form and stats

There's been little loot from Yeni Malatyaspor's travels as they have only collected 11 points from 12 away games in the Super Lig. Yeni Malatyaspor only have 2 wins to counter their 5 defeats and 5 draws. Visiting Malatyaspor has seen their last two away games both end with a tied score and one point each.

Malatyaspor failed to get anything from their last game, a Super Lig home match vs Konyaspor (placed 10th) that ended with defeat 2-3. A 1-1 draw at Antalyaspor's stadium before that.

Leading 2-0 was not enough for Malatyaspor in their fight with Konyaspor last time out. Happy faces soon turned sour as mistakes flourished in what ended up a 2-3 loss.

After this away game Yeni Malatyaspor return home for a Super Lig game against Beşiktaş. That game is only four sleeps after this.

Malatyaspor have scored 14 goals on their travels this season, from 12 away games in the league. Defensive performances away have varied in quality as Malatyaspor have conceded 19 goals on the road. For more goal statistics, check out the Statistics tab above.
