Team News: Gaziantep
Ulaş Zengin (Achilles tendon rupture), Lazar Markovic (Muscle tear) and Albian Ajeti (Muscle tear) will not be taking part for Gaziantep gaffer Marius Şumudică. Erten Ersu cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: MKE Ankaragücü
Due to a fully injury-free squad available for selection, the MKE Ankaragücü boss Emre Belözoğlu has no fitness concerns to report ahead of this clash. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Yasir Karabay and Berkay Atesyakan.
We believe that MKE Ankaragücü may find it difficult to be putting a goal past this Gaziantep lineup who we reckon will score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore expecting a highly competitive game with a 1-0 winning margin for Gaziantep when the referee blows for full-time.
Hoping for a good game.
