We are visiting Turkey once again and we have a game where two of the best teams will clash this Sunday. Trabzonspor are going to host the league leaders Sivasspor to sit on the throne.
Trabzonspor have been exceptional since the last month of 2019. They have won 9 consecutive matches in all competitions. Having won 12 times, drawn 5 times, and lost 3 times, they have gathered 41 points this season. They have also played one match less than Sivasspor; therefore, they have the advantage despite being at the 2nd place in the league table. Although everyone doubted them when they changed their head coach in the middle of the season when things weren’t that bad, they kept improving and never slowed down for a once. In my opinion, they are ideally a bigger candidate for the title than Sivasspor. They have a deadly combination of forwards and wingers and their opponents have had hard time keeping up with their pace so far. The only disadvantage for them is that their in-form striker Sörloth will not be able to play against Sivasspor as he received a red card in the last round. Last but not least, they will visit Erzurum BB on the Turkish Cup but it is highly like that they will play with their reserve players as the first match ended with a 5-0 blow-out.
Speaking of Sivasspor, they have stumbled in the second leg of the league as I expected. They let their opponents to close the gap and now they are in danger of losing the first place. So far, they have gathered 42 points with 12 victories, 6 draws, and only 3 losses. They are undefeated at home but their away record is not that great. They lost twice and drawn once in the last 3 games they played on the road in all competitions. Note that they are also going to play a cup match just 3 days before this match and they don’t have the chance to play with their reserve players unlike Trabzonspor as this is a must win match.
All in all, although I expect a hard-fought match, I believe that Trabzonspor have the upper-hand. Firstly, they have the home advantage, which matters too much for them as they are undefeated in 28 of the last 32 home matches played in Super League. Secondly, they are on a great run at the moment and their motivation is unmatched. The fans strongly believe in the championship and they will be a big factor for determining the result of this match. On those grounds, I expect Trabzonspor to win.
