İstanbul Başakşehir, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 1-3 Super Lig success against Kasimpasa.

It has been a rare occasion in recent times where İstanbul Başakşehir have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that İstanbul Başakşehir have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 5 goals in the process.
Leading up to this clash, İstanbul Başakşehir:
- have not been beaten in the league by Konyaspor in their previous 2 games.
- are undefeated in their last 2 league matches at home.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against MKE Ankaragücü in Super Lig competition, Konyaspor will be aiming to make amends here.

The stats tell the story, and Konyaspor have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 11 goals in total. In defence, Konyaspor have clearly had some problems. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be continued into this game, of course.
Coming into this contest, Konyaspor are undefeated in their last 5 away league matches.

The İstanbul Başakşehir manager Emre Belözoğlu does not have any fitness concerns at all coming into this match owing to a completely healthy squad available to choose from.
Team News: Konyaspor
Konyaspor boss İlhan Palut has not got a full squad to pick from. Cebrail Karayel (Unknown Injury), Amir Hadziahmetovic (Unknown Injury) and Muhammet Demir (Unknown Injury) miss out here. Ahmet Oguz cannot play in this game through suspension.
Our feeling is that Konyaspor should have enough to put a goal past this İstanbul Başakşehir outfit, however that is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
