Super Lig: Sivas vs Kayseri
Sivasspor preceded to the score away to Gaziantep, but eventually defeated with the score of 2-1. They were excellent in the first half, but to the second retreated, played more defensive, and then left with ten players and eventually lost with a goal that came after a fatal mistake from keeper Koca, who lost the ball through his arms, after a seemingly easy shot. Despite the defeat, after ten games unbeaten, coach Riz Calimbay was pleased by the overall picture of his team to the game against Gaziantep, and asked from his players to continue with the same pace and attitude in order to return to winning ways today. The league enters the final nine games of the normal period and Sivasspor wants to remain the first eight places in order to participate in the upcoming play offs. Navratil and Karakas are both suspended, while Faty returned from Copa Africa and will be into the team the next few days.
Kayserispor scored against Besiktas very early to the game and maintained the score until the end of the match. The game was very mediocre, but Besiktas had more chances to score and had a lot of complains about the refs, which protected twice Slovak defender Pekarik of Kayserispor, since the ref did not showed a second yellow card for two times. This was the second consecutive victory that brought Kayserispor in eighth place with a better goal difference by Eskisehirspor, and they are pushing too to enter play offs, but the performance instability is the biggest enemy of Kayserispor, and is a team that can lose or win against any opponent. This game is considered as a local derby against a very elevated and with the same objectives team of Sivasspor, so we can expect a very hard game. Khizanishvili and Riveros are back to the squad after serving cards ban, while Unal, who did not played their last game is back to the main squad too.
A local derby between very good and in form teams, where Sivasspor maybe will be ok with a draw having in mind that they are already five points away from 8th place, while Kayserispor must take a result there to continue pushing for play offs.
