Kayserispor will play in this game after a 1-1 Super Lig drawn result vs Yeni Malatyaspor.
In that match, Kayserispor had 46% possession and 7 attempts at goal with 1 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Kayserispor was İlhan Parlak (41'). At the other end, Yeni Malatyaspor got 15 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Adem Büyük (65') scored for Yeni Malatyaspor.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times that Kayserispor have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Anadolu Yıldızı have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 10 goals along the way. While that may be of interest, we’ll just have to find out if that trend will be maintained here in this game.
Heading into this fixture, Kayserispor are unbeaten in their previous 2 home league matches.
After being beaten in their last game against Sivasspor in Super Lig competition, Gaziantep and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

Team News: Kayserispor
Gustavo Campanharo (Cartilage Damage), Miguel Lopes (Unknown Injury) and Ömer Uzun (Torn Meniscus) aren’t available for Kayserispor boss Hamza Hamzaoğlu. Ineligible players who cannot play in this game through suspension are Yaw Ackah, Wilfried Kanga and Manuel Fernandes.
Team News: Gaziantep
Gaziantep manager Ricardo Sá Pinto has some current player fitness concerns. Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik (Fitness), Caglar Akbaba (Unknown Injury), Amedej Vetrih (Unknown Injury) and Abdul-Aziz Tetteh (Fitness) miss out here.
We’ve got the feeling that Gaziantep may not find it easy to get anything against this Kayserispor team who we think will likely score & stay on top.
We’re therefore seeing a very even match with a 1-0 winning score for Kayserispor at the end of the match.
