Antalyaspor vs Besiktas by Neuro
Antalyaspor is coming from a 2:1 defeat away to Eskisehirspor last weekend, however the team appeared much improved in comparison to the previous games, while they looked especially way better in the offensive part of the game. It seemed that the visitors will earn a point as the game was heading to a draw, but the weak defense betrayed Antalyaspor once again in the last moments.
Their start of the season turns out to a nightmare, as the team is still ranked at the bottom position, being at the same time the only team without a victory. Their game play was completely without any fluency till now and totally harmless, while all of the offensive actions were based on personal actions of exception offensive Lamine Diarra till now. Atmosphere in the team isn't at the best level, after consecutive failures and game against Besiktas comes in the worst possible time as everyone is asking for a positive result, in this case at least a draw. Goalkeeper Fornezzi (1/0), defensive Nizam (1/0) and offensive Tuncer are questionable for this game, as the team actually has no fresh worries.
Besiktas is coming from incomplete 1:2 defeat against Galatasaray in the derby match of the previous round, with the fans entering the pitch and the game had to be abandoned. In any way, they had quite a good start in the season counting four consecutive victories, playing beautiful football, while now, after the match against Galatasaray coach Bilic was punished with three matches, while the team will have to play next five games behind the closed doors.
However, reports are saying that the mood in the locker room resumed at it's normal course, as the players are declaring that they are behind the scenes in derby and want to start another winning streak, from tonight's game. The truth is, that Besiktas showed this season that they can overcome many situations despite many absences in their roster, which is quite deep and all gaps are covered, especially in the offensive lineup. Offensive midfielders Holosko and Boral still didn't participate this season, while striker Pektemek (4/0) and Eneramo (1/0) remain sidelined. Same as midfielder Ozyakup (3/0) who is out with a face injury.
There is not a single reason why should we trust the home side against in-form visitors who are playing great till now and have a perfect chance to get another victory against a side they have so good tradition with.
