Konyaspor – Kasimpasa

Konyaspor hosts Kasimpasa in a match from the 30th round of the Turkish Super Lig. Let’s have a look at this game.

 

Konyaspor are currently 16th in the Super Lig, being positioned in the relegation zone. They have 29 points won so far and a record of 7 wins, 8 draws and 14 losses. In their last five games Konyaspor are performing pretty good – two wins, two draws and one loss. They are unbeaten in four consecutive games right now.

 

At this moment Konyaspor are trailing on just one point behind Genclerbirligi and the safe zone, so their hopes of survival are pretty solid. If they win against Kasimpasa, this could mean escaping the danger zone.

 

Kasimpasa are 9th in the Super Lig with 40 points. They have a record of 11 wins, 7 draws and 11 defeats. But right now Kasimpasa are in a run of three consecutive wins, recorded against Goztepe, Bursaspor and Kardemir Karabukspor. Before this they lost against Antalyaspor and made a draw against Sivasspor.

 

On paper Kasimpasa are favourites, because of their better league position and overall quality, but have in mind that Konyaspor are the team which needs the points more in this case. Kasimpasa are already waiting for the season to end, being comfortably placed in the middle of the standings. But Konyaspor need the points, because they are currently engaged in a serious fight for survival.

 

We really need to remind that Konyaspor are unbeaten in their last four games. It makes them a team which really wants to survive and which is ready to fight for this. They easily could have given up, but this didn’t happen.

 

We shall expect a competitive game between Konyaspor and Kasimpasa. Konyaspor are the team which needs the points, but Konyaspor won’t give them without a fight.
