Göztepe journey to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Stadyumu on Sunday for the Super Lig meeting with home side Kasimpasa.
All Kasimpasa v Göztepe match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below (plus the best game odds).
Kasimpasa will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 2-1 Super Lig losing effort in their last game against Fenerbahçe.
In that game, Kasimpasa had 55% possession and 8 shots at goal with 2 on target. The only player to score for Kasimpasa was Michal Trávník (53'). Fenerbahçe had 10 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Mërgim Berisha (16') and Luiz Gustavo (45') scored for Fenerbahçe.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that Kasimpasa have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Kasimpasa have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, shipping 11 goals during that time.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Giresunspor in Super Lig competition, Göztepe will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Göztepe had 51% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 5 on target. Giresunspor had 8 attempts at goal with 5 on target. Fousseni Diabaté (71') was the scorer for Giresunspor.
The stats tell the story, and Göztepe have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 10 goals overall. Defensively, Göztepe seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. We shall soon find out if that trend will be sustained in this game.
Heading into this contest, Göztepe are without an away win for the past 5 league games.
Head to head
A review of their prior head to head meetings going back to 05/10/2018 shows that Kasimpasa have won 3 of these and Göztepe 1, with the number of draws standing at 2.
A combined total of 12 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 9 from Apaçiler and 3 netted by Göz Göz. That is an average goals per game value of 2.

Team News: Kasimpasa
Jeffrey Bruma (Unknown Injury) and Kevin Varga (Unknown Injury) won’t be playing for Kasimpasa boss Cihat Arslan. Loret Sadiku will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Göztepe
Göztepe manager Nestor El Maestro has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Marko Mihojevic (Ankle Inflammation) and Wilker Ángel (Unknown Injury) can’t be considered. Metin Yildirim is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We feel that Göztepe will need to put in a solid display to breach the defence of this Kasimpasa lineup who we reckon will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore expecting a good tussle with a 1-0 win for Kasimpasa at the end of this one.
Let’s see how it plays out.
