In their previous six outings, İstanbul Başakşehir have helped themselves to a total of 11 goals. Belediye have also not failed to score in every single one of those games.

Team News: Kasimpasa
Fatih Öztürk (Unknown Injury), Dieumerci Ndongala (Unknown Injury), Zvonimir Sarlija (Unknown Injury) and Mickaël Tirpan (Unknown Injury) are not available for Kasımpaşa manager Fuat Çapa. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Tobias Heintz and Azad Toptik.
It’s our opinion that Apaçiler may well opt for a 4-2-3-1 system for this one, utilising Ramazan Kose, Oussama Haddadi, Yassine Meriah, Tomas Brecka, Florent Hadergjonaj, Aytac Kara, David Pavelka, Mame Baba Thiam, Haris Hajradinovic, Yusuf Erdogan and Bengali-Fode Koita.
Team News: İstanbul Başakşehir
Owing to a completely healthy squad available to select from, İstanbul Başakşehir boss Okan Buruk does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game.
We reckon that Belediye might elect for a 4-4-2 lineup by sending out Mert Günok, Junior Caicara, Martin Skrtel, Alexandru Epureanu, Gael Clichy, Edin Visca, Irfan Can Kahveci, Mahmut Tekdemir, Eljero Elia, Enzo Crivelli and Demba Ba.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Kasimpasa might well have a job on their hands to get anything against this İstanbul Başakşehir outfit who should end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’ve gone for a very even contest with a 0-1 victory for İstanbul Başakşehir at the end of the match.
Should be interesting.
