All Göztepe v Kasimpasa game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below - plus the latest match odds.
Göztepe, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-1 Super Lig triumph versus Fenerbahçe.
The only name on the scoresheet from Göztepe was Halil Akbunar (9').
It has been seldom in recent times that Göztepe have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Göz Göz have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 9 goals along the way.
Heading into this contest, Göztepe are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.
Kasimpasa will go into the encounter after a 3-2 Super Lig win in the defeat of Fatih Karagümrük in their last game.
For Kasimpasa, the goalscorers were Isaac Kiese Thelin (20') and Yusuf Erdoğan (59', 68'). Enzo Roco (14') and Lucas Castro (80') scored for Fatih Karagümrük.
The numbers tell their own story, and Kasimpasa have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 10 goals in all. Defensively, Apaçiler can certainly do much better. It will be interesting to find out if that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Heading into this fixture, Kasimpasa have not won away from home in their last 3 league games.

It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Göztepe boss Ünal Karaman to contend with from an otherwise complete set of players. Zlatko Tripic (Thigh Muscle Strain) is sidelined.
Team News: Kasimpasa
Kasımpaşa boss Fuat Çapa has a number of players out of action. Armin Hodzic (Unknown Injury), Julian Jeanvier (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Isaac Kiese Thelin (Unknown Injury) and Tarkan Serbest (Shoulder Injury) won’t be making appearances. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Gerard Gohou and Bengali-Fodé Koita.
We feel that Kasimpasa will likely create enough chances to score against this Göztepe lineup, although that probably won’t quite be enough to prevent defeat.
Our tip is for a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 win for Göztepe by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
