A common aspect of recent Gençlerbirliği games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
From their prior six clashes before this one, in 5 of them a bet on BTTS would've been a losing one. We will just have to see if that trend will end up being sustained in this game.
Going into this encounter, Gençlerbirliği are without a win at home for the past 4 league games. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
Since tasting defeat last time out to Konyaspor in Super Lig action, Yeni Malatyaspor and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The only player to score from Yeni Malatyaspor was Adem Büyük (24', 45'). Ismaël Diomandé (72') and Sokol Cikalleshi (80', 84') scored for Konyaspor.
The stats tell the story, and Yeni Malatyaspor have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 9 goals in total. In defence, Malatyaspor could really do with shoring things up.
Their previous form shows that Yeni Malatyaspor:
- are undefeated in their last 3 league matches away from home.
- are without an away win for the past 2 matches in the league.
