Akhisar vs Umraniyespor by Sors
Akhisar Belediyespor comes from a 1-0 win at home against Konyaspor last Sunday, second consecutive for the hosts after a 2-1 victory in the first match between these two teams in Umraniye last Wednesday.It’s obvious that this team is doing much better compared to early season, as after just two wins in the first ten rounds in the Turkish Super League (2-3-5 7/14), Akhisar Belediyespor won eleven points from the last six rounds (3-2-1 5/3) and climbed in the middle of the standings, with a comfortable eight-point advantage over the teams in the relegation zone.
4-2-4 14/15 for Akhisar Belediyespor from ten home games this season, but three of those four defeats were against the top three teams in Turkey – Galatasaray (1-3), Besiktas (0-2) and Fenerbahce (1-3).
Tolunay Kafkas is expected to make several changes in the starting lineup for this match against Umraniyespor (as in the previous three games in this group), but he has several very experienced players on the bench like Milan Lukac (goalkeeper), Tolga Unlu (defender), Kadir Keles (defender), Alper Uludag (midfielder), Soner Aydogdu (midfielder), Mugdat Celik (forward / 1 goal) and Ricardo Vaz Te (forward / 11 goals), who scored five goals in six games in December, including the winning goal in the first match between these two teams last Wednesday.
Umraniyespor is a team from the second level of the Turkish football league system, where the guests sit on 7th position, with 6-5-5 21/16 after sixteen rounds.
The guests began their campaign in Group G with a 3-1 win at home against Aydinspor on Nov. 29, but lost their next two games against Bursaspor on Dec. 15 (3-0/away) and Akhisar Belediyespor last Wednesday (1-2/home).
There is actually one more thing that should be taken into account here: Umraniyespor had a tough match in Izmir three days ago (1-1 vs. Altinordu) and Kenan Gonen will be forced to make several changes in the starting lineup for that game, but unlike his colleague, he doesn’t have enough depth in his squad.
I think that Akhisar Belediyespor will manage to win three points from this match.
