It’s good to have Super League back! Now I’ll be sharing picks with full confidence. The most important match of this round will be played between Başakşehir and Alanyaspor. Let’s analyze it deeply.
Başakşehir are easily my favorite to win the title this season. They are currently in the second place although they have the same amount of points as the league leaders Trabzonspor have. Having won 15 times, drawn 8 times, and lost 3 times, they have managed to gather 53 points. They are unbeaten in the last 12 home games. Two of their 3 losses came in the first two rounds, which means they have only lost once in the last 26 rounds. I believe that the changes made after the Coronavirus lockdown will be in favor of Başakşehir. Başakşehir were basically playing with no fans at home (as the club is rather newly founded and they don’t have the history the other Istanbul clubs have). Therefore, the fact that the remaining matches will be played behind the closed doors will have no effect on Başakşehir. Secondly, the maximum number of substitutions a team can make during a match was increased to 5. Başakşehir will greatly benefit from this change because they have a bench composed of players who would be easily playing in the starting line-up of any Super League team. Last but not least, Trabzonspor, their biggest opponent in the title race, have recently been suspended from UEFA tournaments, which will demotivate them for sure.
The away team, on the other hand, had a great start to the season, but everything went downhill in the second leg of the championship. Currently, they are occupying the 6th place, trailing the 4th placed Sivasspor by 6 points. They will be fighting for the 4th spot, which will give them a ticket to the Europa League Knockout Stage. However, this will not be an easy task. They are also in the semi-finals of the Turkish Cup. If they manage to win it all in this tournament, they will secure in their place in the Europa League. I consider this an easier path and I’m almost sure that their focus will be on the Turkish Cup. Only 5 days after their trip to Başakşehir, they will be hosting Antalyaspor in the second leg of the semi-finals.
All in all, Başakşehir have the upper-hand in this match-up. They are locked and loaded for the Super League title while Alanyaspor’s focus is on the Turkish Cup. My pick is Başakşehir to win. Register for the best betting software and place your winning bet for Turkey – Super League now. Good luck!
