Team News: Altay
The Altay manager Mustafa Denizli does not have any fitness concerns at all before this clash with a completely healthy squad to choose from. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Ziya Alkurt, Gencer Cansev, Jasmin Scuk and Sefa Özdemir.
Team News: Göztepe
Göztepe manager Ünal Karaman has to currently contend with reduced team options. Ege Özkayimoglu (Muscle Injury) and Marko Mihojevic (Ankle Inflammation) are not ready for selection. Metin Yildirim is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Our feeling is that Göztepe will have their work cut out to score against this Altay outfit who we reckon should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
Therefore, we predict a narrow 1-0 advantage for Altay at the end of this one.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
