Our tips, poll and stats for Konyaspor v Göztepe can all be found here - as well as up-to-date odds.
Konyaspor will be hoping to bounce back here after the 2-1 Super Lig defeat last time out to Fatih Karagümrük.
The only name on the scoresheet from Konyaspor was Marko Jevtović (84'). Andrea Bertolacci (66') and Badou N'Diaye (81') scored for Fatih Karagümrük.
Konyaspor have been conceding pretty frequently recently, but they have also found ways to score goals themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, Konyaspor have conceded in 6 of them while also scoring in 5 of those games. Such a trend isn’t assured to be continued into this match, of course.
Coming into this fixture, Konyaspor are undefeated in their last 2 league matches at home.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Antalyaspor in Super Lig competition, Göztepe will be hoping to turn things around here.
Doğukan Sinik (77') was the scorer for Antalyaspor.
It has become apparent that Göztepe have suffered from a shortage of goals over their previous six clashes, recording the disappointing return of just 4. In those fixtures, Göz Göz have also seen the collective goal tally against them equal 10.
Heading into this contest, Göztepe are without an away win for the past 3 matches in the league.

Team News: Göztepe
Thanks to a largely available group, there is just the one fitness problem for the Göztepe manager İlhan Palut to be concerned with. Alpaslan Öztürk (Hamstring Injury) won’t be in action. Guilherme cannot play in this game through suspension.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Göztepe would be disappointed if they were not to put one past this Konyaspor side, although that is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
Our tip is for a 2-1 winning margin for Konyaspor at the end of the 90 minutes. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
