The Sunday program of the seventh round of the Turkish Super League will open with a match between the championship outsider Giresunspor and Kayserispor, which is in the middle of the standings. We offer you a forecast for this meeting.
Giresuntsy could not score the first goal for a very long time after their return to the Super League. In the first four rounds, they lost dry. After the international break, the team with Magomed-Shapi Suleymanov lost away to Alanyaspor (0: 1), after which they scored the first point at home, drawing at home with Konyaspor (0:0). Last Thursday, we finally managed to score the first goal, but it was only a prestige goal in the away match with Fenerbahce (1: 2).
"Kayserispor" was also predicted by many to fight for survival, but they still look like a real strong middle man. At the end of August, "Istanbul Basaksehir" was beaten away (1: 0), and after a two-week pause, it was already possible to defeat "Kasympash" (2:0) in their native walls. Last Sunday, despite a quick goal scored, Hikmet Karaman's team lost on the road to Hatayspor (1: 2), but then they simply defeated Galatasaray (3:0) at home.
Statistics and figures
- Giresunspor did not win a single match in the championship (1 draw + 5 defeats), scoring only 1 goal;
- Giresunspor has won only 2 matches out of the last seven at home, losing four times;
- Kayserispor has lost only 1 match out of the last five, winning three times;
- Kayserispor has won only 1 match out of the last nine away matches, losing four times.
The big victory of Kayseris over Galatasaray, of course, looks impressive, but the Istanbul team is now in crisis, and Karaman's team is frankly not so good at visiting. Giresunspor should play easier, having finally managed to open the scoring after returning to the Super League for the first time since 1977. In this match, the hosts may well win.
