Team News: Gaziantep
Gaziantep manager Marius Şumudică will be happy not to have any fitness worries whatsoever before this game with a fully injury-free squad available to choose from. Abdul-Aziz Tetteh is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Antalyaspor
Thanks to a largely full-strength squad, there is only the lone fitness problem for the Antalyaspor boss Tamer Tuna to be concerned about. Bahadir Öztürk (Thigh muscle rupture) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the view that Antalyaspor and Gaziantep could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting. A draw is a real possibility, as we are expecting there to be little between them. Therefore, we predict a close game with a 1-1 score draw when all is said and done.
