Antalyaspor vs Ankaragucu Free Betting Tips
The scorpions want to win under the new coach Stjepan Tomas in the Süper Lig for the first time. So far, there have been two draws and two defeats since Tomas’ coaching debut. Before the match against the Turkish record champions Galatasaray on the last match day, Antalyaspor wants to leave a relegation zone with a home win.
A home win of Antalyaspor against Ankaragücü is currently rewarded with odds of 1.57. We see a tip as the most likely betting option. In the last competitive matches, the scorpions had shown good approaches, but were only rewarded with two points. The guests from the Turkish capital, on the other hand, recently won a very happy point against Galatasaray.
On Friday evening, the capital kickers may lack the slightest bit of luck to take points from the away game in Antalya. We find in the match between Antalyaspor vs. Ankaragücü a prediction on the home side is definitely recommended.
Antalyaspor – statistics & current form
Stjepan Tomas starts his coaching career at the crisis club from Antalya. After the scorpions from Antalya had a catastrophic start to the season, a change of coach was almost in sight. Since the Croatian coach’s debut, Antalyaspor has only taken two points from four league games.
The pressure on Stjepan Tomas is growing. A home win in the basement duel against Ankaragücü is almost a must for the Croatian coach, especially as the difficult away game against Galatasaray is on the final day of the first half of the season. If Antalyaspor gets the liberation from the bottom of the table, the scorpions initially slide to a non-relegation zone.
Antalyaspor has only won 13 points in 15 games so far. The Red and Whites have been without a win in the Süper Lig since matchday seven. Last match day, Antalyaspor won a well-deserved point in the neighborhood duel against Alanyaspor. During the week, the scorpions also made it into the round of 16 of the “Türkiye Kupasi”.
On Friday evening, Stjepan Tomas will be spared personnel worries. Harun Kavaklidere remains the only long-term injured in the Scorpion squad. Compared to the last starting XI against Alanyaspor, no changes in the starting XI are expected. If Antalya builds on the strong performance against Alanya, nothing stands in the way of a home win over Ankaragücü.
Estimated line-up of Antalyaspor:
↪ Kaplan – Albayrak, Angelo, Celustka, Sangaré – Charles – Sinik, Akyol, Özmert, Amilton – Chahechouche
Last games from Antalyaspor:
⚽️ 12/17/2019 – Antalyaspor vs. Eyüpspor 2: 2 (cup)
⚽️ 12/13/2019 – Alanyaspor vs. Antalyaspor 0-0 (Süper Lig)
⚽️ 12/08/2019 – Antalyaspor vs. Trabzonspor 1: 3 (Süper Lig)
⚽️ 04.12.2019 – Eyüpspor vs. Antalyaspor 0: 3 (cup)
⚽️ 12/01/2019 – Istanbul Basaksehir vs. Antalyaspor 2-0 (Süper Lig)
Ankaragücü – statistics & current form
Ankaragücü caused a big surprise on the last match day. The capital kickers outnumbered a point win against the Turkish record champions. A double strike in the final minutes gave Ankaragücü the draw in Istanbul. This also ended the bankruptcy series in the Süper Lig.
Ankaragücü previously suffered six defeats in a row. Although the blue-and-yellow team have gone through a catastrophic first half of the season, relegation is still a realistic goal. Ankaragücü is only five points away from the saving bank. To get out of the sporting crisis, the capital club is planning some investments in the upcoming transfer window.
For this, however, the transfer lock must first be lifted. Club president Fatih Mert is also fighting possible point deductions due to financial problems. If the desired reinforcement fails to materialize in winter and players leave the team after missing salary payments, it will be difficult to prevent relegation in summer.
With construction sites on the defensive and offensive, Ankaragücü is currently one of the hottest relegation candidates in the league. However, Mustafa Kaplan is optimistic to find a way out of the crisis with selective reinforcement in winter. On Friday evening, the main club with goalgetter Dever Orgill will miss the most important top player in the squad.
The blues and yellows are expected to play with a “false nine”, especially since the manageable squad of the capital city club is looking in vain for an adequate replacement for the banned goal getter.
No further changes are expected at Ankaragücü. If the capital city club gets the third win of the current season on Friday evening, odds of 5.75 for tip 2 are waving at Antalyaspor against Ankaragücü.
Estimated line-up of Ankaragücü:
↪ Celikay – Pinto, Kubalas, Kulusic, Pazdan, Karayel – Parlak, Faty, Agcay, Kitsiou – Kaya (Önal)
Last games from Ankaragücü:
⚽️ 12/14/2019 – Galatasaray vs. Ankaragücü 2: 2 (Süper Lig)
⚽️ 07.12.2019 – Ankaragücü vs. Goztepe 1: 3 (Süper Lig)
⚽️ 11/30/2019 – Alanyaspor vs. Ankaragücü 5-0 (Süper Lig)
⚽️ 11/23/2019 – Ankaragücü vs. Trabzonspor 0: 3 (Süper Lig)
⚽️ 11/10/2019 – Istanbul Basaksehir vs. Ankaragücü 2: 1 (Süper Lig)
