Konyaspor have really been misfiring in more recent games. Their goals record stands at just 4 against opponents over the course of their last 6 fixtures. In those games, Konyaspor have also seen the number of goals against them total 13. While that may be of interest, we will just have to wait and see if such a trend shall continue on in this next game or not.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Konyaspor:
- haven't lost in the league to Kasimpasa in their previous 11 matches. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.

Team News: Konyaspor
Gökhan Töre (Syndesmotic ligament tear) and Muhammet Demir (Cruciate ligament surgery) are unavailable for Konyaspor boss Hakan Keleş.
In our view, Konyaspor look set to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, beginning the first half with Paul Bernardoni, Ahmet Oguz, Adil Demirbag, Francisco Calvo, Karahan Yasir Subasi, Soner Dikmen, Ugurcan Yazgili, Robert Muric, Alexandru Cicaldau, Marlos Moreno and Sokol Cikalleshi.
Team News: Kasimpasa
Kasimpasa manager Kemal Özdeş has to currently contend with reduced team options. Erdem Çetinkaya (unknown injury) and Samuel Bastien (unknown injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
It’s our belief that Apaçiler appear most likely to elect for a 4-1-4-1 system, going with Andreas Gianniotis, Claudio Winck, K. Josiah Omeruo, Sadik Ciftpinar, Yasin Özcan, Gökhan Gül, Mamadou Fall, Haris Hajradinovic, Aytac Kara, Mortadha Ben Ouanes and Julien Ngoy.
We believe that Kasimpasa will do well to score against this Konyaspor lineup who we reckon will just have the edge.
We’re therefore predicting a very even contest with a 1-0 winning margin for Konyaspor when the full-time whistle blows.
