Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Pendikspor v Fatih Karagümrük match are shown here including the latest game odds.
Pendikspor prepare for this match coming off the back of a 0-0 Super Lig drawn game versus Fatih Karagümrük.
It has been seldom in recent games that Pendikspor have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Pendikspor have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, shipping 12 goals during that time. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, of course.
Going into this encounter, Pendikspor have not won at home in their last 2 league games.
The trend of at least one side getting a clean sheet in games featuring Fatih Karagümrük has been fairly consistent of late. A glance at their last six games reveals that this has happened 5 times. During these clashes, their opponents have hit a goal aggregate of 3 and Fatih Karagümrük have scored 6.

Fatih Karagümrük got 4 attempts at goal with 1 on target.
Team News: Pendikspor
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the Pendikspor manager Osman Özköylü to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Emeka Eze (Unknown Injury) is sidelined. Ruhan Arda Aksoy cannot play in this game through suspension.
In our view, Pendikspor look set to employ a 4-5-1 formation, beginning the first half with Erdem Canpolat, Serkan Asan, Berkay Sulungoz, Welinton, Nuno Sequeira, Oscar Romero, Fredrik Midtsjoe, Josip Vukovic, Arnaud Lusamba, Endri Cekici and Thuram.
Team News: Fatih Karagümrük
With a fully healthy group available to choose from, the Fatih Karagümrük manager Alparslan Erdem has zero fitness concerns to report coming into this game. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Cem Kablan and Fatih Kurnaz.
We reckon that Fatih Karagümrük seem likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 system by sending out Matias Dituro, Frederic Veseli, Davide Biraschi, Federico Ceccherini, Levent Mercan, Stefano Sturaro, Otabek Shukurov, Ryan Mendes, Kerem Kesgin, Guven Yalcin and Kevin Lasagna.
Our thinking is that Fatih Karagümrük and Pendikspor may well end up cancelling each other out here.
It appears that a draw might be on the cards. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a hard-fought 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.
