We offer a forecast for the match Fenerbahce – Khatayspor, which will take place on September 21. The opponents haven’t lost for a long time, will they manage to draw and continue the streak?
Fenerbahce was left without European cups for this season, as it took only seventh place in the standings. In friendly matches, the Istanbulites played extremely well. They either won or drew with Karagyumryuk (2: 2) and Alanyaspor (1: 1). In the first round, the Yellow Canaries easily outplayed Rizespor (2: 1).
In the offseason, the club strengthened itself with Valencia, Tisseran, Lemos, Janer Erkin and Sosa. Unfortunately, I had to part with Kruse, Isla, Muriki, Hare and Arslan.
Khatayspor spent the last year in the second most important division and did it quite well, having won gold medals. In the test match with Galatasaray (1: 1), the club confirmed its intentions to gain a foothold in the elite of Turkish football, playing on equal terms with the grand.
From the very start, the “white-burgundy” began to create sensations – they beat the reigning champion of the Super League “Bashakshehir” with a score of 2: 0, and absolutely to the point. Recently, Munir, Diouf and Traore have joined the team.
Fenerbahce have not lost seven matches in a row.
“Hatayspor” has not lost for five matches.
Fenerbahce ended in a draw at home two of the last four games.
In our opinion, the bet in favor of a draw seems reasonable and well-founded. The hosts are showing great football and have the right to fight for the European Cups, and the roster has hardly changed. Istanbulites perform at home. It seems that everything speaks for the success of the favorite, but the guests act too cool for a beginner and deserve advances. They have already taken out one Istanbul team, it is unlikely that their attitude will change in a short time. We think the match will be equal.
Our prediction is a draw in BC Winline for 4.66.
