Hatayspor will be hoping to bounce back here following the 7-0 Super Lig defeat last time out to Beşiktaş.
In that match, Hatayspor had 39% possession and 9 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. The only player to score for Hatayspor was Babajide David (2' Own goal). Beşiktaş got 17 attempts at goal with 13 of them on target. Cyle Larin (11', 14', 55', 65'), Georges-Kévin Nkoudou (38') and Rıdvan Yılmaz (44') scored for Beşiktaş.
Matches involving Hatayspor have often been engaging ones recently with a lot of goalmouth action the rule rather than the exception. Over their past 6 games alone, the sum of 23 goals have been scored for both sides combined (at an average of 3.83 goals per game) with 9 of them belonging to Hatayspor. Despite that, we must now wait to see whether that trend might continue on here in this match.
Heading into this fixture, Hatayspor are unbeaten in their last 2 home league matches.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Çaykur Rizespor in Super Lig competition, Denizlispor and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that match, Denizlispor managed 54% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 1 on target. Çaykur Rizespor had 13 shots on goal with 5 on target. Braian Samudio (72') scored for Çaykur Rizespor.
Demonstrating their bias toward action-packed matches, goals have been celebrated 24 times in the previous 6 games in which Denizlispor have taken to the pitch, making it a mean average of 4 goals each fixture. Opposition teams have managed 15 of those goals.
Going into this contest, Denizlispor are without an away win for the past 11 league matches. Their travelling support will be needed here, for sure.
