We have been witnessing an unconventional Super League so far and this is mostly due to the fact that underdogs have been surprising us all. Sivasspor is one of these underdogs. This Saturday, the current league leaders, Sivasspor are going to host Kasımpaşa at 4 Eylül Stadium.
Since the start of the season, the 1st spot has changed only a few times. Alanyaspor were the best team in the first 9 rounds and most of the time they kept the first spot. When they started to slow down a bit, everyone predicted that Fenerbahçe will take the lead. However, as I have mentioned at the beginning of my analysis, this is not a typical Super League. Out of thin air, Sivasspor continued to perform at a high and steady level and their efforts produced outstanding results. So far, Sivasspor have gathered 24 points in 12 rounds with 7 wins, 3 draws, and 2 losses. In the last 6 rounds, they have won 5 times and lost only once. The defeat they had, came against Galatasaray on the road and in that game, they actually played well despite having one of their players sent off. In the last round, they absolutely rampaged Kayserispor on the road. Defeating their opponent 4-1, they shot the ball 23 times and if it weren’t for an off day for the strikers, the score might have been even better for Sivasspor.
On the other hand, Kasımpaşa have not been performing well and I regret backing them in the last round. Gathering only 12 points in 12 rounds, they are currently placed at the 15th spot. In this campaign, they have won 3 times, drawn 3 times and lost 6 times. The problem with Kasımpaşa seems to be at the defensive end as they have conceded 21 goals so far. The fact that they lost against Gençlerbirliği, one of the weakest teams in the league, in the last round urges me to think that they will get anything out of his match-up as well.
In a nutshell, Sivasspor are way better than Kasımpaşa and there is no question that they are the heavy favorites. The return of Quaresma seems to have damaged Kasımpaşa’s chemistry. He is not the superstar he once was. My pick is on a Sivasspor win.
