In that match, Hatayspor had 54% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. Konyaspor had 13 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Bruno Paz (66') scored for Konyaspor.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times where Hatayspor have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Hatayspor have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 7 goals in the process.
Ahead of this clash, Hatayspor have not won at home in their last 2 league games.
Kayserispor come into this clash after a 1-0 Super Lig win against Antalyaspor in their last match.
In that game, Kayserispor had 51% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. The only player to score for Kayserispor was Mame Thiam (54'). On the other side, Antalyaspor had 10 shots at goal with 3 on target.
For 5 of the previous 6 clashes featuring Kayserispor, a relatively low number of goals have been hit between them and opposing sides. The overall average goals scored per game in that spell comes to a paltry 1.67, with the number of goals averaged by Anadolu Yıldızı standing at 0.83. That trend isn’t assured to follow through into this match, of course.

There is just the lone fitness concern for the Hatayspor gaffer Serkan Özbalta to contend with from an otherwise complete group of players. Kerim Alici (Calf Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Kayserispor
Kayserispor boss Çağdaş Atan has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Joseph Attamah (Strain of the patella), Cenk Gönen (Unknown Injury), Ali Karimi (Unknown Injury), Emrah Bassan (Pulled hamstring at the adductors) and Majid Hosseini (Calf Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Joseph Attamah is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
In this game, Kayserispor have the capability to put a goal past this Hatayspor outfit, although it might not prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re expecting a very close game with a 2-1 advantage for Hatayspor after the 90. Should be a good one.
