Osmanlispor – Istanbul Basaksehir

Osmanlispor hosts Istanbul Basaksehir in a game from the 31th round of the Turkish Super Lig. Let’s have a look at this game.

 

Osmanlispor are 16th in the Super Lig standings, having a fight against relegation. They are currently on par with the 15th Konyaspor, but they have worse stats than them. Right now Osmanispor are in the relegation zone of the Super Lig and most surely they would like to escape it.

 

The team’s record so far shows 8 wins, 8 draws and 14 defeats. The goals scored are 44, the goals conceded – 50. In their last five games Osmanlispor are performing very differently – two wins, two draws and one loss.

 

In the last round Osmanlispor faced Genclerbirligi away from home and enjoyed a 3-0 win. Adrien Regattin scored two goals for the winning team and Serdar Gurler added one more.

 

But now Osmanlispor will have a tough task against Istanbul Basaksehir – one of the teams who compete for the title.

 

Istanbul Basaksehir are currently 3rd in the Superlig with 62 points, but just one point behind the leader Galatasaray and on par with the 2nd Besiktas. Galatasaray and Besiktas are facing each other and an eventual draw between them would allow Istanbul Basaksehir to lead the table. This is a big motivation for them to beat Osmanlispor.

 

Istanbul Basaksehir have 62 points and a record of 19 wins, 5 draws and 6 defeats. In their last five games they won four times and suffered one defeat against the leader Galatasaray. In the previous round they enjoyed a 3-1 win over Kayserispor at home.

 

There’s no doubt that Istanbul Basaksehir are favourites against Osmanispor. They are fighting for the title and they need every point they can win. But don’t underrestimate Osmanlispor – they are fighting for survival and they are playing at home.
