. All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Göztepe v Alanyaspor are shown below - plus the latest betting odds.
Göztepe will be looking for an improved result here after a 2-1 Süper Lig loss in their previous game against Yeni Malatyaspor. The only player to score from Göztepe was Alpaslan Öztürk (76'). Umut Bulut (40') and Viðar Örn Kjartansson (78') scored for Yeni Malatyaspor.
Göztepe have found it difficult to unlock defences in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 4 vs opposition teams over their previous 6 matches. In those meetings, Göz Göz have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 11.
Coming into this fixture, Göztepe haven't lost in the league to Alanyaspor in their last 2 games.
Previously, Alanyaspor drew 2-2 in the Süper Lig match with Trabzonspor. For Alanyaspor, goals were scored by Papiss Cissé (45') and Anastasios Bakasetas (90'). Abdülkadir Ömür (7') and Filip Novák (52') scored for Trabzonspor.
The stats tell the story, and Alanyaspor have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 8 goals overall. At the back, Alanyaspor can certainly do much better. Previous results aside, we’ll just have to find out whether such a trend will continue on in this game.
Going into this encounter, Alanyaspor have not won away from home in their last 4 matches in the league.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head duels dating back to 07/05/2016, both clubs have shared the honours with Göztepe winning 2 of those games, Alanyaspor 2 and 2 being draws in regulation time.
In all, 18 goals were scored between them throughout the course of those matches, with 9 of them for Göz Göz and 9 for Alanyaspor. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.
The previous league encounter featuring these sides was Süper Lig match day 12 on 24/11/2019 and the score finished Alanyaspor 0-1 Göztepe. The referee was Volkan Bayarslan.
Team News: Göztepe
Göztepe manager İlhan Palut does not have any fitness worries at all before this clash thanks to a completely injury-free squad to pick from.
We are thinking that Göz Göz should use a 4-2-3-1 formation this time, utilising Beto, Berkan Emir, Titi, Alpaslan Öztürk, Lamine Gassama, Soner Aydogdu, Andre Castro, Serdar Gurler, Marcio Mossoro, Halil Akbunar and Cameron Jerome.
Team News: Alanyaspor
Owing to a fully healthy group available to choose from, Alanyaspor manager Erol Bulut has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash. Fabrice N'Sakala will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We are inclined to think that Alanyaspor seem likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 lineup, going with Jose Marafona, Baiano, Giorgos Tzavellas, Steven Caulker, Kaan Kanak, Ceyhun Gülselam, Salih Ucan, Efecan Karaca, Anastasios Bakasetas, Juanfran Moreno Fuertes and Papiss Cisse.
We’re of the opinion that Alanyaspor and Göztepe might both not be able to do quite enough to get on the scoresheet here. It will be interesting to see how this one goes, and it’s not easy to pick a clear winner. We’re therefore anticipating a tight encounter, finishing with a 0-0 score at the end of this game.
