📰 Team News: Istanbulspor
The Istanbulspor boss Fatih Tekke will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this clash thanks to a completely healthy squad to choose from.
We think that Boğalar should employ a 4-1-4-1 formation for this one and select David Jensen, Demeaco Duhaney, Okan Erdogan, Mehmet Yesil, Tuncer Duhan Aksu, Mahamadou Ba, Jason Eyenga-Lokilo, Muammer Sarikaya, Eduart Rroca, Valon Ethemi and Emeka Eze.
📋 Team News: Sivasspor
Sivasspor manager Riza Çalımbay has not got a full squad to pick from. Caner Osmanpasa (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury), Robin Yalcin (Cartilage Damage) and Mustapha Yatabaré (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury) miss out here.
We’re of the thinking that Yiğidolar appear most likely to make use of a 4-3-3 formation, starting the game with Ali Sasal Vural, Alaaddin Okumus, Dimitrios Goutas, Samba Camara, Ziya Erdal, Fredrik Ulvestad, Kader Keita, Charilaos Charisis, Clinton N'Jie, Leke James and Max-Alain Gradel.
When taking everything into account, Istanbulspor will really need to work well to find the net against this Sivasspor side who we think should end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’ve gone for a 0-1 winning margin for Sivasspor at the end of this game.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
