Kasimpasa – Genclerbirligi: Preview & Prediction [divider]
Kasımpaşa will be hoping to maintain their 100 percent home record against Gençlerbirliği on Sunday 9 November 2014.
Kasımpaşa will feel a tad unlucky with their 2-1 loss against Galatasaray last week. Shota Arveladze’s side lost the game despite taking the lead and playing well throughout.
The home side are unbeaten at home and are one of the most well balanced sides in the league having played a 4-2-3-1 setup for the past two seasons under Arveladze.
The Ankara based side have a clean bill of health going into the Kasımpaşa game but their away form has been concerning. Gençlerbirliği have lost their last two away games.
However, Gençlerbirliği have not actually lost against Kasımpaşa in their last five visits to Istanbul.
Gençlerbirliği have one of the leagues most promising young defenders in Ahmet Çalık – definitely a player to keep a close eye on over the course of the season.
Kasımpaşa have an excellent record but on the flip side Gençlerbirliği have a pretty impressive away record against the Istanbul based club. The home side have been growing in stature with each passing season and despite not having the best of times against Gençlerbirliği of late they should have enough to take their of business.
