I’m with yet another Turkish Super League pick and this time I will analyze a match between the 16th placed Kasımpaşa and the 8th placed Göztepe.
Kasımpaşa have had an interesting campaign so far winning 6 times, drawing 5 times, and losing 14 times. The reason why I said that they are having an interesting campaign is that they almost changed the entire team in the winter break. They changed their head coach as well in February and so far Fuat Çapa, the new head coach, has done a terrific job with the assets he has. After losing the first two matches with their new head coach, Kasımpaşa defeated Denizlispor at home, got a draw at Konyaspor, and absolutely rampaged Kayserispor at home in the last round. The decision of not playing Quaresma in the starting line-up seems to have worked and Kasımpaşa looked more dynamic than ever. They scored 5 goals and could’ve scored even more!
The visitors, on the other hand, have been on a slump lately. They have failed to win their last 3 matches in Super League. This season, they have won 9 times, drawn 7 times, and lost 8 times. In the last round, they looked desperate against their strong opponent, Başakşehir. The match ended 0-3 and I believe that the defense of Göztepe was unorganized, slow, and prone to make mistakes.
Although the places of both teams indicate that Göztepe are a better team, I believe that Kasımpaşa have more talented players in their roster. They are on a nice run at the moment and they need the 3 points much more than the visitors, who are in a safer spot. Note that Kasımpaşa defeated Göztepe in 6 of the last 7 encounters between these two teams. My pick is Kasımpaşa +0 AH.
