Team News: Kayserispor
Ömer Uzun (Torn Meniscus), Gustavo Campanharo (Cartilage Damage), Anton Maglica (Hamstring Injury) and Denis Alibec (Tear in the abductor muscle) won’t be available for Kayserispor manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Harrison Manzala and Yaw Ackah.
Team News: Göztepe
Due to a completely healthy group available for selection, Göztepe manager Ünal Karaman does not have any fitness worries to report ahead of this match. Obinna Nwobodo will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Our thinking is that Göztepe and Kayserispor should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a draw. We’re therefore predicting a 1-1 score when the full-time whistle blows.
