Preview: For now it remains business as usual in Turkey, where football continues as scheduled but without any fans inside the stadiums. An empty Antalya Arena will therefore host the final fixture in this weekend’s Super Lig round as Antalyaspor take on Sivasspor.

Antalyaspor Preview – Recent resurgence cause for optimism?

Four wins and three draws from their last seven Turkish Super Lig matches has breathed a new lease of life into Antalyaspor (12th – W6 D9 L10) in their bid to avoid relegation. The club have spent each of the past four terms at this level, even finishing a more than respectable seventh last season to barely miss out on qualification for Europe, but will have feared the worst in the middle of January.

Back then all hope appeared lost when, after failing to record any victory over a lengthy three month period comprising of eleven frustrating rounds of league fixtures (D3 L8), the club languished in the bottom three of the standings. Now up in 12th, everyone can breathe a little easier, although there is still plenty of work which needs doing. The relegation zone remains a mere two points beneath them.

Much of their recent resurgence has stemmed from an improvement in performances away from home, though, recording two of their last three victories on their travels where their record across the season is markedly better. In fact, after completing 12 home games thus far (W2 D5 L5) their figures for points accumulated (11), wins (2) and goals conceded (24) are all league-lows.


Sivasspor & Both To Score




Sivasspor Preview – Goals guaranteed on the road?

Spending a longer duration at the Super Lig summit than most so far, Sivasspor (4th – W14 D7 L4) had genuine reason to believe that a first top-flight title in their history could materialise at the end of the season. Like any team over the course of a long and arduous campaign, particularly one which had been riding the crest of a wave for a long time, there are going to be bumps in the road.

A rough patch of form either side of February, when only two points from twelve were taken (D2 L2), had threatened to derail their earlier efforts. However, the team from Sivas, in central Turkey, appear to have ridden out the worst off it and have subsequently reeled off two wins – over Alanyaspor (1-0) and Ankaragucu (0-3) – along with a creditable 2-2 draw at home to the defending champions, Galatasaray, to hold firm in fourth.

Still within striking distance (3 points) of leaders Trabzonspor, there should be no let up here. Yet Sivasspor, despite boasting the fourth-strongest away figures in the division (W5 D3 L4), have proven to be more vulnerable on their travels. All four of their defeats over the course of the campaign were sustained on the road, while no team inside the top-eight concedes more often (1.58 per away game). That being said, no team in the entire league betters them in the away scoring stakes (23 from 12 games).

Antalyaspor Vs Sivasspor Betting Advice

Both teams have rallied recently, which should lead to another competitive renewal of a fixture which has been closely-fought in recent times. Antalyaspor are unbeaten in seven Super Lig games (W3 D4) while Sivasspor have claimed seven of the last nine points (W2 D1) after a dip in form prior. Goals were a regular feature for both, meanwhile, with Both Teams To Score delivering in Antalyaspor’s last five league contests and in six of Sivasspor’s previous eight.


Antalyaspor Vs Sivasspor – Key Facts

  • Antalyaspor have climbed out of the Super Lig relegation zone after a seven-game unbeaten run (W3 D4), with the last five producing both teams to score.
  • Sivasspor endured a slump more recently but have since recovered, winning two of their last three league games (W2 D1).
  • The previous five Super Lig meetings between the two clubs have all produced Both Teams To Score, with Sivasspor prevailing 2-1 at home in this season’s earlier encounter.


As previously alluded to, there has been very little to split these two in recent match-ups, with this set to be their fourth meeting of the campaign. Sivasspor edge it so far but only account of them winning 2-1 at home in the league, as their two cup meetings finished all-square (0-0 and 1-1). That goalless affair was an outlier, though, with it being the only one of their past seven encounters not to feature both teams scoring.
