Ankaragücü manager Hikmet Karaman has some current player fitness concerns. Ricardo Friedrich (Shoulder Injury), Atakan Cankaya (Fitness) and Sahverdi Cetin (Fitness) miss out here. Michal Pazdan will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
In our view, MKE Ankaragücü could find themselves struggling to break down this Konyaspor side who we think will manage to score & go ahead.
We’re therefore anticipating a 1-0 winning margin for Konyaspor at full-time.
It should be a good one.
