Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Sivasspor v MKE Ankaragücü game (plus the best game odds).
Sivasspor will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 2-0 Super Lig defeat last time out to Beşiktaş.
In that match, Sivasspor managed 34% possession and 7 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. Besiktas got 18 attempts on goal with 8 of them on target. Omar Colley (25') and Milot Rashica (40') scored for Beşiktaş.
It’s not been often in recent times that Sivasspor have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Sivasspor have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 6 goals during that time.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Sivasspor:
- are unbeaten in their previous 4 home league matches.
- are without a home win in the past 3 league games.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Fenerbahçe in Super Lig action, MKE Ankaragücü will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, MKE Ankaragücü managed 51% possession and 14 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Fenerbahce had 14 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Bright Osayi-Samuel (60') was the scorer for Fenerbahçe.
The stats tell the story, and MKE Ankaragücü have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 8 goals in total. At the back, MKE Ankaragücü could really do with shoring things up. We will see whether or not that trend can be sustained here.
Coming into this meeting, MKE Ankaragücü haven’t won away from home in the past 2 matches in the league.

Team News: Sivasspor
Emrah Bassan (Unknown Injury), Samba Camara (Unknown Injury) and Ahmed Musa (Unknown Injury) are unavailable for Sivasspor boss Servet Çetin.
We are thinking that Yiğidolar could kick off with a 4-3-3 system for this game, utilising Ali Vural Sasal, Murat Paluli, Caner Osmanpasa, Aaron Appindangoye, Ugur Ciftci, Charis Charisis, Yunus Emre Konak, Samuel Saiz Alonso, Clinton NJie, Rey Manaj and Gerson Rodrigues.
Team News: MKE Ankaragücü
In an otherwise available squad, there is just the sole fitness worry for the MKE Ankaragücü boss Tolunay Kafkas to be concerned about. Ali Sowe (Hand fracture) won’t be playing here. Yasir Karabay cannot play in this game through suspension.
It’s our belief that Kupa beyi might begin the game with a 4-3-3 lineup, choosing Rafal Gikiewicz, Stelios Kitsiou, Uros Radakovic, Mert Cetin, Nihad Mujakić, Andrej Djokanovic, Tolga Cigerci, Efkan Bekiroglu, Olimpiu Morutan, Riad Bajic and G. Mendes Rodrigues.
We believe that MKE Ankaragücü may well find it hard to find the net against this Sivasspor side who we think might well manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re going for a very even match with a 1-0 winning margin for Sivasspor when the full-time whistle blows.
