Aaron Appindangoyé (Fitness) and Sergiy Rybalka (Cartilage Damage) are unavailable for Sivasspor gaffer Riza Çalımbay.
Team News: Konyaspor
Konyaspor manager İlhan Palut has some current player fitness concerns. Marin Anicic (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Alper Uludag (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
In our opinion, Konyaspor will need things to go their way to break down this Sivasspor lineup who we think will likely do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We’ve gone for a very even match with a 1-0 advantage for Sivasspor at the conclusion of the game.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
