Bitesize Prediction: Antalyaspor vs Fenerbahce – 03/01/23

Competition: Super Lig

Market: Fenerbahce win

Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

Looking to open the New Year with a statement on the road, Fenerbahce will make the trip to Antalyaspor on Tuesday evening.

Starting with the hosts, while Antalyaspor might have impressed many across Turkey last season, Nuri Sahin’s side have largely failed to keep up that same momentum this time around. Opening up the New Year at the heart of a relegation scrap and holding just a one-point buffer from slipping into the drop zone, the Scorpions will be more than aware that they face a huge challenge on Tuesday night. Last seen signing off 2022 with another sluggish display as they were hit with a 2-0 loss away at Basaksehir, the one-time Real Madrid star has seen his side lost five of their previous six matchups across all formats. With that nightmare spell stemming all the way back to November 9th, Antalyaspor have also continued to show a string of rather glaring issues at the back. It should also be noted, the midweek hosts have lost three of their last four showdowns at the Antalya Stadium.

As for the visitors, while Antalyaspor might be in the midst of an extended rut, Fenerbahce should find the mood in their camp at a real high. Last seen signing off 2022 with a real statement as they cruised their way to a 4-0 romp at home against Hatayspor, Jorge Jesus’ side are now desperate to reclaim their domestic crown this season. Sat just one-point adrift of Galatasaray and climbing to the top of the table, the Yellow Canaries have lost just a pair of their last 11 top-flight outings. With that run stemming all the way back to August 29th, the should also be boosted by an eye-catching record against the relegation scrappers. Unbeaten in all six of their previous meetings against Tuesday’s hosts, it should also be highlighted that Fenerbahce are unbeaten at the Antalya Stadium since 2016. Two sides battling it out at opposite ends of the table, we’re backing an away victory here.
