Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Göztepe v Denizlispor can be found here - as well as up-to-date odds.
Göztepe will be looking for a repeat result of a 3-1 Süper Lig success vs Sivasspor.

Fixtures with Göztepe have proved to be exciting affairs of late with high scoring the rule rather than the exception. Over their past six clashes alone, the sum total of 25 goals have gone in for both sides combined (at an average of 4.17 goals per game) with 11 of them being chalked up by Göz Göz.
Since being beaten in their last game against MKE Ankaragücü in Süper Lig action, Denizlispor will be hoping to turn things around here.
İlhan Parlak (94') was the scorer for MKE Ankaragücü.
The forward players for Denizlispor have been starved of goals over their last six clashes, contributing the disappointing return of only 4. In those matches, Horozlar have also seen the overall goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 8. Even so, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend will be sustained in this upcoming game or not.

Team News: Göztepe
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Göztepe boss İlhan Palut to be concerned with due to a largely intact set of players. Batuhan Kirdaroglu (Fibula Fracture) is out of contention.
We think that Göz Göz should make use of the 4-2-3-1 formation this time featuring Göktug Bakirbas, Berkan Emir, Titi, Atinc Nukan, Murat Paluli, Soner Aydogdu, Andre Biyogo Poko, Zlatko Tripic, Marcio Mossoro, Halil Akbunar and Brown Ideye.
Team News: Denizlispor
Thanks to a fully healthy squad available to select from, Denizlispor boss has no fitness worries to report before this match.
We are inclined to think that Horozlar seem likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 lineup by sending out Costel Pantilimon, Tiago Lopes, Oğuz Yılmaz, Mustafa Yumlu, Zakarya Bergdich, Marvin Bakalorz, Radoslaw Murawski, Hadi Sacko, Recep Niyaz, Angelo Sagal and Muris Mešanović.
We think that Denizlispor will do well to score against this Göztepe lineup who we think might well get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We therefore see a hard-fought 1-0 advantage for Göztepe at the end of the 90 minutes.
Should be a close one.
