Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Istanbulspor v Tuzlaspor can be found here (inc. the best betting odds).
Istanbulspor enter this fixture following a 0-0 1. Lig drawn result vs Giresunspor.
Their latest results show that much respect should be given to the Istanbulspor defence. Boğalar have been miserly, seeing the total number of goals that have gone in at their end during their past six games standing at 4. Such a pattern won’t necessarily follow through into this next game, of course.
Coming into this fixture, Istanbulspor are without a home win in the past 4 league games. Their fans aren't happy.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Samsunspor in 1. Lig competition, Tuzlaspor will be hoping to turn things around here.
The stats don’t lie, and Tuzlaspor have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 13 goals in all. Defensively, Tuzlaspor have some weaknesses to address.
Coming into this meeting, Tuzlaspor are without a win away from home in their last 4 league games.
Team News: Istanbulspor
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the sole fitness concern for the Istanbulspor gaffer Fatih Tekke to be concerned about due to a largely intact squad. Duhan Aksu (Hip Injury) won’t play. Patrick Etoga is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Tuzlaspor
Thanks to a largely healthy squad, there’s just a single fitness issue for the Tuzlaspor boss to be concerned with. Aykut Ceviker (Unknown Injury) won’t be playing here. Arif Morkaya cannot play in this game through suspension.
It looks to us that Istanbulspor are likely to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
At the other end, Tuzlaspor might well find it a difficult task to get a goal of their own although we do see them pulling one back during this clash.
We’re tipping a decent 3-1 winning score for Istanbulspor at full-time.
