The only name on the scoresheet from Antalyaspor was Sidney Sam (3'). Furkan Soyalp (70') scored for Gaziantep.
In 5 of the past six clashes featuring Antalyaspor, a comparatively low number of goals have gone in between them and their opposition. The overall average number of goals per game in that period comes to a meagre 2, with the number of goals averaged by Akrepler equalling 1.17. Historical results aside, we’ll just have to find out whether the trend might be replicated here in this game.

- have not emerged victorious against İstanbul Başakşehir in away games against them for the last 4 matches in the league. Not good at all.

Head to head
Looking at their past head to head results going back to 17/12/2017 tells us that these fixtures have not been fruitful for Antalyaspor. They have not managed to register any victories whatsoever whereas İstanbul Başakşehir have managed to find a way, getting wins in 100% of those ties.
A sum of 16 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 15 of them for Belediye and 1 for Akrepler. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.67.
Team News: İstanbul Başakşehir
İstanbul Başakşehir manager Okan Buruk has no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this clash owing to a completely injury-free group available to choose from.
Team News: Antalyaspor
Antalyaspor manager Tamer Tuna has some current player fitness concerns. Fredy (Thigh muscle rupture), Hakan Özmert (Unknown Injury), Jean-Armel Drolé (Tibia Fracture) and Serdar Gürler (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Ufuk Akyol and Sidney Sam.
We’re of the opinion that İstanbul Başakşehir will most probably score at least once when they play Antalyaspor, who might well find it difficult to break down their defence.
We reckon that it will be a 2-0 victory for İstanbul Başakşehir after 90 minutes.
