📊 Form Guide
Konyaspor go into this game following on from a 0-0 Super Lig drawn game against Galatasaray.
A common feature of recent Konyaspor games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
From their prior sextet of clashes before this one, in as many as 5 of them a bet on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a losing one.
Coming into this fixture, Konyaspor haven’t won at home in the past 8 matches in the league. Such a poor run.
A sequence of dependable performances from the Galatasaray defensive unit has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their past 6 clashes overall. Over that same period, their forwards have scored 15. That pattern won’t necessarily follow through into this next game, however.
A look at their previous results shows us that Galatasaray:
- have not won against Konyaspor when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
- are undefeated in their previous 6 away league matches.
👥 Head to head
A look at their past head to head clashes stretching back to 26/01/2020 tells us that Konyaspor have won 2 of these games & Galatasaray 4, with the tally of drawn results standing at 0.
A combined sum of 17 goals were yielded between them during those clashes, with 7 of them for Konyaspor and 10 coming from Cimbom. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.83.
The previous league contest featuring the two was Super Lig match day 7 on 16/09/2022 and the score finished Galatasaray 2-1 Konyaspor.
That day, Galatasaray managed 55% possession and 18 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. Their only player to score was Sérgio Oliveira (1').
Konyaspor had 19 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Endri Çekiçi (15') and Francisco Calvo (82' Own goal) scored.
The match was refereed by Abdulkadir Bitigen.
ℹ️ Team News: Konyaspor
Konrad Michalak (Unknown Injury) and Uche Ikpeazu (Unknown Injury) are not available for Konyaspor manager Aleksandar Stanojević.
It’s our opinion that Konyaspor could employ a 4-2-3-1 system for this game, handing starts to Ibrahim Sehic, Ahmet Oguz, Adil Demirbag, Francisco Calvo, Guilherme, Soner Dikmen, Andreas Bouchalakis, Marlos Moreno, Alejandro Pozuelo, Mahir Emreli and Muhammet Demir.
📋 Team News: Galatasaray
Galatasaray manager Okan Buruk has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Dries Mertens (Twisted knee) and Fredrik Midtsjö (Thigh Muscle Strain) won’t be making appearances. Victor Nelsson is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We believe Cimbom appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation, choosing Fernando Muslera, Sacha Boey, Kaan Ayhan, Abdulkerim Bardakci, Leo Dubois, Berkan Kutlu, Sergio Oliveira, Baris Alper Yilmaz, Milot Rashica, Kerem Akturkoglu and Mauro Icardi.
In this game, Konyaspor would be disappointed if they were not to breach the defence of this Galatasaray team, but one goal likely won’t prevent defeat.
We’ve gone for a very close game with a 1-2 advantage for Galatasaray after the 90. There looks to be little in this one.
