Team News: Tuzlaspor
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Tuzlaspor boss to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength group. Abdoulaye Cissé (Knee Injury) will miss out. Bünyamin Mustafa Bingöl is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Sakaryaspo
In an otherwise full-strength group of players, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Sakaryaspo gaffer Şaban Yildirim to contend with. Oguz Kocabal (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be playing here.
Sakaryaspo and Tuzlaspor could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
Let’s see how it plays out, but a draw is looking likely to us. That is why we are leaning toward a very close game with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the match.
