I will go back to Turkey to close the week. The 5th placed Alanyaspor are going to host the 16th placed Kasımpaşa counting for the 18th round of Super League. Let’s analyze deeper!
Having started the new season in an incredible form, Alanyaspor have suffered unfortunate defeats in the last days of 2020. After the heartbreaking loss they got at Istanbul against Fenerbahçe, they are now in the 5th place trailing the league leaders by 4 points. I believe that the scoreline didn’t do justice to Alanyaspor dominant performance. Throughout the game it was Alanyaspor who possessed the ball and found important goal chances. To my mind, they are still one of the best teams in this league. What they lack is the winning mentality big teams such as Galatasaray, Fenerbahçe, and Beşiktaş have. Moreover, they rely too much on possessing the ball and sometimes forget that scoring a goal is necessary to close out the games.
The visitors, on the other hand, are one of the worst teams of this league in my opinion. Maybe calling them the worst would be an overstatement but they are definitely the most inconsistent. They are winless in the last 4 rounds conceding 11 goals in this period. They also faced Fenerbahçe the last time out but unlike Alanyaspor, Kasımpaşa deserved to lose.
Considering that Kasımpaşa are winless in 9 of their last 10 away games, I expect a very challenging 90 minutes for the visitors. On the other hand, Alanyaspor will surely adapt an aggressive style of gameplay to get back to winning ways. Also it should be noted that Alanyaspor have won 8 of their last 10 games played at home.
H2H records show us that in the last 3 meetings these two team had, Alanyaspor came out on top. For all these reasons, I will place my bet for the home side. If you also want to take advantage of the best odds in the market, register at the best betting software right now. Good luck!
