GAZIANTEP V SIVASSPOR
Gaziantespor beat Ankaragucu 1-0 last time out. They were outplayed for almost the entire game, but took advantage of their opponent's inability to convert and were clinical themselves when it mattered. When they face teams with more quality, Sa Pinto uses a conservative approach, lowers the tempo, and looks to create chances through quick transitions. Expect more of the same here.
Sivasspor beat Malatyaspor 1-0 last time. Contrary to expectations, they showed no signs of fatigue and dominated the game, created a lot of chances, and should have won by a much bigger margin. Away from home, Calimbay is also more cautious and will deploy tactics very similar to those of his counterpart. This game has draw written all over it
Prediction: Both teams to score
FENERBAHCE V ERZURUM
Fenerbahce were held to a 0-0 draw by Alanyaspor last time out. They had a subdued start to the game and after being reduced to 10 men, they never looked like they were going to score. This was a massive blow for their title hopes. Against Erzurumspor they have to win. Expect an all-out attack approach by Belozoglu. With the likes of Pelkas and Ozil in the lineup, they should be able to create enough chances to win this.
Erzurumspor were beaten 2-1 by Basaksehir last time out. The loss brought their three-game winning streak to an end and they're back in the relegation zone. Against stronger sides, Vural likes to defend deep and use counter-attacks, which is what he will do here. The big problem he is facing though is the absence of Emrah Bassan who has been their best performer this season. Erzurumspor will struggle here.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
