The Super Lig fixture at Kadir Has Şehir Stadyumu on Wednesday sees home side Kayserispor lock horns with Denizlispor.
Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Kayserispor v Denizlispor game - as well as the best betting odds.
Kayserispor will be hoping for a better result after the 3-1 Super Lig loss in their previous game against Beşiktaş.
In that game, Kayserispor had 37% possession and 6 attempts on goal with 1 on target. The only player to score for Kayserispor was Pedro Henrique (6'). For their opponents, Beşiktaş had 19 shots at goal with 7 of them on target. Rachid Ghezzal (4') and Georges-Kévin Nkoudou (13', 65') scored for Beşiktaş.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that Kayserispor have kept a clean sheet. In fact, Anadolu Yıldızı have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 8 goals in the process.
Pre-game facts show that Kayserispor:
- are unbeaten in the league by Denizlispor in their last 3 matches.
- haven’t won at home in the past 4 league games. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
Previously, Denizlispor drew 1-1 in the Super Lig tie with Sivasspor.
In that game, Denizlispor managed 62% possession and 7 attempts on goal with 3 on target. The only player to score for Denizlispor was Mix Diskerud (59'). For their opponents, Sivasspor got 9 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. Olarenwaju Kayode (32') scored for Sivasspor.
The stats don’t lie, and Denizlispor have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 10 goals overall. Defensively, Horozlar have some weaknesses to address. We will have to find out if that trend can be sustained in this game.
Coming into this contest, Denizlispor are without an away win for the past 10 league matches. Their travelling support will be needed here, for sure.
Head to head
An examination of their prior head-to-head meetings stretching back to 12/04/2009 shows that Kayserispor have won 4 of these games and Denizlispor 1, with the number of drawn games being 1.
A sum of 10 goals were yielded between them in this period, with 8 of them from Anadolu Yıldızı and 2 created by Horozlar. The average goals per game has been 1.67.
The last league game between the two was Super Lig match day 17 on 06/01/2021 when it finished Denizlispor 0-1 Kayserispor.
The referee was Ali Şansalan.
Team News: Kayserispor
Miguel Lopes (Unknown Injury), Gustavo Campanharo (Cartilage Damage), Ugur Demirok (Unknown Injury) and Ömer Uzun (Torn Meniscus) won’t be able to feature for Kayserispor manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Harrison Manzala, Yaw Ackah and Wilfried Kanga.
Team News: Denizlispor
Denizlispor boss Ali Tandoğan has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Hadi Sacko (Unknown Injury), Mustafa Yumlu (Unknown Injury), Hüseyin Altintas (Unknown Injury) and Ahmed Yasin (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) miss out here. Asim Aksungur cannot play in this game through suspension.
We’re inclined to think that Kayserispor will more than likely be able to score a couple when they meet Denizlispor, who could well find it tough to break down their defence.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a fairly comfortable 2-0 win for Kayserispor at the end of the match.
