Team News: Antalyaspor
Dogukan Sinik (Unknown Injury), Serdar Gürler (Unknown Injury), Jean-Armel Drolé (Unknown Injury) and Bahadir Öztürk (Unknown Injury) won’t be able to feature for Antalyaspor manager Ersun Yanal.
Team News: Göztepe
Due to a mostly available squad, there’s just the lone fitness issue for the Göztepe manager Ünal Karaman to be concerned with. Marko Mihojevic (Injury to the ankle) won’t be playing here. Obinna Nwobodo is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We feel that Göztepe and Antalyaspor might both not be able to do quite enough to get on the scoresheet here.
At this stage, it appears to have the makings of a possible draw. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a 0-0 scoreline at the end of the match.
