Malatyaspor vs Kasimpasa by Isaiah
Malatyaspor had a difficult time last time out, even though they looked like a side capable of doing something away from home against Antalyaspor last weekend before the game, however stood defeated with a 3:1 result mostly thank to the fact that they were left playing with a man less early in the second halftime.
Their hosts opened the game better and took the lead already in ninth minute from the penalty kick taken by Kadah, while they actually dominated the rest of the first halftime and managed to finally level up the result deservedly in second minute of additional time with a goal from Kara.
However, once they stood with a man less in 52nd minute when defender Chebake got red carded, they simply had to switch to a more defensive role and in the end suffered deserved 3:1 loss thanks to goals from Kadah in 66th and El Kabir in second minute of additional time.
The side is now at tenth position with eight points more than relegating worried Osmanslispor and a victory here would bring them even closer to a relaxed ending of the season. Home side is set to miss suspended duo defender Issam Chebake (19/0) and forward Adem Buyuk (15/2). Injured remains midfielder Issiar Dia (10/0).
Kasimpasa, on the other side, managed to get important 2:0 victory last Sunday when the side welcomed Akhisar Genclik Spor in an important match as new three pointer have detached them further away from the relegation battle and it was earned against anotehr struggling side.
They looked better from the start of the match, but didn't have much of initiative till the start of the second halftime when they increased the tempo and took the lead with a goal from Trezegeut in 50th minute - their visitors tried to reply and it was more open halftime, while Trezegeut netted his second in last moments of the game when the guests risked the most.
The side is now at eleventh position having seven points more than relegating worried Osmanslispor and shouldn't have huge relegation worries in case they keep the same course in next weeks.
Visitors will be missing defender Olivier Veigneau (16/0), plus midfielder Markus Neumayr (18/3).
It shouldn't be an easy three pointer for the home team, however players of Kasimpasa aren't showing that much of positive signs on the road. They might have been a bit lucky last time out with their goalkeeper doing great job, but I can't see them walking away twice with a positive result than what they deserve since, especially not when playing away from home since I strongly believe players of Maltyaspor will be dominant in this one.
