The Saturday round of Turkish league – Super Lig – games sees Trabzonspor looking for their first away win of the season, Kasimpasa looking for their first win of the season, while Bursaspor and Besiktas both have the chance to top the league.
Check out our betting tips and Super Lig previews below:
Karabukspor v Trabzonspor
Karabukspor have managed to get off to a decent start to the season when you consider the extend of their injury crisis. Marius Alexe, Dejan Lazarevic, Serdar Deliktas and Elvis Kokalovic are all out injured while Kerim Zengin is suspended. Trabzonspor meanwhile have no major injury concerns but do have a real issue on the road. The Black Sea Storm have lost all their away games this season, in fact they have lost nine of their last 10 games in the league. Karabukspor are being underestimated at home. The Steelers are no push overs and there is value on them not to lose.
Prediction: Karabukspor Win/Draw
Kasimpasa v Kayserispor
Kasimpasa have been woeful this season and sit bottom of the Super Lig without a single victory to their name. Newly promoted Kayserispor are doing marginally better and are in 13th place on five points. It is however, still early in the season and the Istanbul minnows do actually have a decent squad capable of turning their bad start around. The value is on Kasimpasa not to lose.
Prediction: Kasimpasa Draw No Bet
Gaziantepspor v Bursaspor
Bursaspor boss Hamza Hamzaoglu is no stranger to being involved in a title race from his time as Galatasaray boss. The Green Crocodiles have won four of their five games this season and could go first with a win against Gaziantepspor. The away side are arguably the most in-form side in the league and have a well balanced squad with quality in attacking areas.
Prediction: Bursaspor Draw No Bet
Caykur Rizespor v Besiktas
Besiktas are coming off the back of a 2-2 draw against Galatasaray last week in the Istanbul derby and a 1-1 draw against Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League mid-week. The Black Eagles have no trouble scoring, in fact nobody has found the back of the net as many times as the Istanbul giants (13). The problem Besiktas have is in defence. However, when you can outscore your opposition nine times out of 10 in the league the Eagles can afford to take risks in defence. Expect a high scoring game and expect Besiktas to win.
Prediction: Besiktas Win
