Team News: MKE Ankaragücü
MKE Ankaragücü manager Hikmet Karaman has zero fitness worries whatsoever before this clash thanks to a fully healthy group available for selection. Atila Turan is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Antalyaspor
Out of a mainly healthy group, there is just a single fitness worry for the Antalyaspor boss Ersun Yanal to contend with. Gökdeniz Bayrakdar (Collarbone fracture) misses out for this game.
We feel that over the course of the game, Antalyaspor will need to put in a solid display to put one past this MKE Ankaragücü lineup who we think should gain the upper hand.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a highly competitive game with a 1-0 advantage for MKE Ankaragücü at the end of the 90.
Should be an interesting one.
