Istanbul will be hosting Goztepe in tonight’s match. As the visitors are having a very stable form, it’s not going to be easy for the capital team to win.
Asian Handicap: 0.84*1.5-2*0.76
Currently, on the ranking of the Turkish National Championship, Istanbul Basaksehir is at the top of the table. After 29 rounds, they won 18 victories, 8 draws and 3 losses. With 62 points, Istanbul is more than 2nd place Galatasaray 3 points. This is an extremely fragile distance when the season has 5 rounds to finish. Therefore, Istanbul needs to be careful in the remaining matches. Only one match, they can completely lose the championship this season.
In the last 6 rounds, coach Abdullah Avcı’s team only won 3 victories, 2 draws and 1 defeat. In the last 2 matches, Istanbul Basaksehir didn’t know the victory with Rizespor and the defeat against Besiktas. If they continue to clash in the next round, they can completely lose the top spot to Galatasaray.
In the next round, Istanbul Basaksehir players will meet Goztepe at their home field. They will be determined to win 3 points in this confrontation in order to preserve the top spot. At home, Istanbul Basaksehir’s record is quite impressive. They just lost a single match at Super Lig this season, in which they have a series of 7 unbeaten matches in a row with 4 wins and 3 draws.

Odds Over/Under: 0.96*3.0*0.94
In contrast to Istanbul Basaksehir, Goztepe is struggling with relegation. They are on the penultimate side of the Super Lig chart this season. The distance between them and the safety group is 2 points. Therefore, Goztepe still has a chance to relegate this season.
However, the current form of the army of the Tamer Tuna coach is extremely bad. They did not know the smell of victory in the last 8 rounds with 6 losses and 2 draws. On away field, they cannot win in 6 consecutive matches.
In six meetings between the two teams, Istanbul Basaksehir won five matches. In the first leg of this season, Istanbul Basaksehir won 2-0 on Goztepe’s field. The most recent match in which Goztepe won was in May 2004.
Despite the determination to avoid relegation next season, it’s really hard for Goztepe to cause any surprises facing Istanbul Basaksehir. Coach Abdullah Avci and his players will win 3 points to secure the top spot. Despite having 1.5 handicaps, the home team is fully capable of winning this match.
The attack of Istanbul Basaksehir has shown a poor performance this season. After 29 matches they have scored 45 goals. However, the defense of the team is ranked at the top of the Super Lig table.
