Denizlispor will be the visitors at Eryaman Stadyumu on Monday for the Süper Lig clash with home side Gençlerbirliği.
Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Gençlerbirliği v Denizlispor - along with the latest match odds.
Gençlerbirliği, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-1 Süper Lig triumph over Beşiktaş.
The only player to score from Gençlerbirliği was Bogdan Stancu (8').
A common feature of more recent Gençlerbirliği games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
Taking their prior six matches before this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on BTTS would have been a loser.
Their previous form shows that Gençlerbirliği:
- are winless against Denizlispor in their last 5 league games.
- haven’t won at home in the past 4 league games. Their fans aren't happy.
In their previous game, Denizlispor drew 0-0 in the Süper Lig match with Konyaspor.
In 5 of the previous 6 clashes featuring Denizlispor, a notably low volume of goals have gone in between them and their opponents. The overall average goals scored per game during that period is a paltry 1.5, with the average goals for Horozlar being 0.17. That pattern might not be carried forward into this game, however.
Their past results show that Denizlispor:
- have not been beaten by Gençlerbirliği in away games against them for the last 2 league games.
- are without a win away from home in their last 11 league games. What a terrible run of away results.
Head to head
A review of their prior head-to-head meetings going back to 06/12/2009 tells us that Gençlerbirliği have won 1 of these and Denizlispor 4, with the number of drawn games being 1.
A combined sum of 10 goals were scored between them throughout the course of those matches, with 2 of them for Ankara Rüzgârı and 8 for Horozlar. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 1.67.
Team News: Gençlerbirliği
Gençlerbirliği boss Mert Nobre will be thankful to have no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match thanks to a fully healthy squad to choose from.
In our view, Ankara Rüzgârı look set to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, beginning the first half with Kristoffer Nordfeldt, Pierre-Yves Polomat, Zargo Toure, Diego Ângelo, Mattias Johansson, Berat Ayberk Özdemir, Robert Piris Da Motta, Sefa Yilmaz, Dominik Furman, Daniel Candeias and Bogdan Stancu.
Team News: Denizlispor
Out of a mainly healthy squad, there’s just the sole fitness issue for the Denizlispor gaffer Robert Prosinečki to be concerned with. Hadi Sacko (Unknown Injury) misses out for this game.
There’s a good chance that Horozlar might begin the game with a 3-5-2 formation, starting the game with Costel Pantilimon, Neven Subotic, Mustafa Yumlu, Fabiano Leismann, Tiago Lopes, Recep Niyaz, Marvin Bakalorz, Ismaël Aissati, Angelo Sagal, Hugo Rodallega and Muris Mešanović.
We’re of the opinion that Denizlispor might well have a job on their hands to be putting a goal past this Gençlerbirliği side who will likely end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We therefore fancy a narrow 1-0 winning margin for Gençlerbirliği after 90 minutes.
Let’s see what happens.
