Gaziantep vs Trabzonspor Prediction & Betting tips
Trabzonspor can breathe easy. The Bordeaux-Blues won an important home win over Yeni Malatyaspor last week and were able to at least compensate for the weak start to the season. Now the Schwarzmeerkicker want to add more and win the second game in a row. The trip to Gaziantep is planned for this, where the fourth matchday will kick off on Friday evening.
The best bookmakers see at Gaziantep vs. Trabzonspor the guests according to odds as easy favorites. A prognosis for the Black Sea club is definitely recommended in this case. After all, Gaziantep FK is currently struggling with some internal unrest, mainly due to the “homesickness” of coach Marius Sumudica.
The Romanian trainer from Gaziantep has been toying with a return to the domestic league for some time. There were intensive talks there in the summer, but an agreement with the Romanian clubs was probably missed. It will probably only be a matter of time before Marius Sumudica returns to Romania. The black and reds from Gaziantep have not had a bad start to the season, but remained without a win on the first three match days.
In the last season Gaziantep FK successfully mastered the premiere season in the Turkish House of Lords. The second year is known to be the hardest year for climbers. It is therefore not surprising that those responsible for the black and red continue to set relegation as their primary goal – even though Gaziantep FK finished eighth in the table last season.
For the GRP supporters from the Turkish pistachio city, this cautious goal was certainly not understandable. At the latest after the first three game days of the current season, it should be clear that the board was absolutely correct in this assessment. Gaziantep FK have so far been without a win and only took two points from their first three games.
Last week, the black and red from Gaziantep managed to win points in Izmir after a last minute draw. How the 2020/21 season will turn out for the soccer players from Southeast Anatolia cannot really be foreseen at the moment. On paper, coach Marius Sumudica’s squad has potential.
Marius Sumudica continues to insist on his offensive game philosophy. It remains to be seen whether the Romanian will be successful this season. As can be seen from the latest media reports on Sumudica, the Romanian trainer from Gaziantep is currently doing completely different things. Among other things, Sumudica is toying with a return to Romania.
So it remains to be seen how the first half of the season will turn out for the black and red from the Turkish pistachio city. If the defense continues to be as vulnerable as it was last season, a single-digit table placement will hardly be possible.
On Friday evening, Marius Sumudica will have the entire management staff available. Compared to last week’s starting line-up, there won’t be any major changes.
Balm for the Black Sea soul. With the home win over Yeni Malatyaspor (3: 1) Trabzonspor succeeded in breaking free last week. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen whether the Bordeaux-Blues will actually participate in this year’s title race after the messed up second half of the last season or whether a relapse into old times follows.
The frustration is still deep after the championship was literally surrendered last season. Numerous top performers were also sold in the summer, which is why the traditional club on the Black Sea is difficult to assess.
After Sosa, Novak and top scorer Alexander Sörloth left, it is no secret that the offensive was lost. Recently, the Black Sea kicker offensive made a good impression. Last week, Trabzonspor gave the opponent three goals in the first half.
It is quite possible that an offensive spectacle will follow against the vulnerable defense of Friday’s opponents from Gaziantep.
Since last season the UEFA FFP regulations were violated, Trabzonspor was given an international ban this season. Correspondingly, important income was missing, which meant that a sell-off of high performers could not be prevented.
However, further departures cannot be ruled out for the Bordeaux-Blauen. Among other things, a sale of regular keeper Ugurcan Cakir is said to be imminent. According to media reports, the Black Sea Club’s own generation received attractive offers from Europe. Trabzonspor is asking for sums of more than the 20 million mark for the cakir.
Last season Trabzonspor was the strongest away team in the Süper Lig. In 17 away games, the Black Sea club had a record of 9-6-2. If the Newton team ties in with that this season, Gaziantep vs. Trabzonspor a prognosis for the guests is very obvious.
On Friday evening, TS coach Newton will have to do without Diabate, Trondsen, Parmak and possibly Cakir due to injury.
