Kayserispor enter this match coming off the back of a 1-1 Super Lig stalemate vs Trabzonspor.

It has been seldom in recent times where Kayserispor have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Anadolu Yıldızı have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 games, shipping 10 goals during that time. We will just have to see whether or not that trend will be continued on here.
Looking at their past form shows that Kayserispor:
- have not won against Antalyaspor in their previous 4 matches in the league.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 league matches.
Since a loss in their previous game against Sivasspor in Super Lig competition, Antalyaspor and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that match, Antalyaspor managed 54% possession and 12 shots on goal with 7 on target. The only player to score for Antalyaspor was Fredy (27', 67'). Sivasspor had 11 shots at goal with 8 of them on target. Tyler Boyd (1', 36'), Mustapha Yatabaré (47') and Erdoğan Yeşilyurt (90') scored for Sivasspor.
The stats don’t lie, and Antalyaspor have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 12 goals overall. Defensively, Akrepler have been far from perfect.
Taking a look at their past results, Antalyaspor:
- have not registered a win against Kayserispor when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
- are without a win away from home in their last 5 league matches.
