Karagumruk vs Basaksehir Prediction & Betting tips
Not because of defending the title – Basaksehir has had a very weak start to the season in the Süper Lig and is lagging behind the high expectations. Friday evening will show whether the false start can be compensated for this week. In the small city derby Basaksehir meets the newcomer Fatih Karagümrük.
The two clubs met in preparation for the season. Basaksehir prevailed in the close friendly against Karagümrük 2-1 and turned a temporary deficit. Even if the result of the preparation should not be overrated, the newcomer certainly stood up to the supposed favorite.
Fatih Karagümrük started the Süper Lig season with a home win over Yeni Malatyaspor and an away draw in Gaziantep. A total of five goals were scored in the first two games, which once again proved the offensive qualities of the team. A point win against Basaksehir is by no means absurd with the current form of the promoted team.
In Fatih Karagumruk vs. Basaksehir, the odds on an away win are not really recommended anyway. After all, the previous year’s champion has so far not provided any arguments that confirm a prediction of a win at the Friday match.
For the first time in almost 36 years, Fatih Karagümrük is back in the Turkish House of Lords. The black and reds from the metropolis of Istanbul want to establish themselves as a Süper Lig club in the long term and avoid a direct relegation. The primary goal this season is without a doubt relegation. The start of the season so far is quite impressive.
At the start of the season, “Kara Kirmizi” scored an impressive home win (3-0) over Yeni Malatyaspor. On the other hand, on the second match day of the Süper Lig there was a hard-fought away game in Gaziantep, where a last-minute goal from Joker Mevlüt Erdinc still managed to win the point. At home, Fatih Karagümrük is now building on the strong home record this calendar year.
Across the seasons there was a record of 6-5-0 in eleven home games at the Vefa Stadium. These statistics are expected to continue this season. After all, “Kara Kirmizi” upgraded a lot last summer.
With Artur Sobiech there is no unknown face to be found at the top. The 30-year-old Pole was already under contract with clubs like Hannover 96 and Darmstadt in his playing career before Sobiech returned to Poland in the meantime. In his first two competitive games for the newly promoted Sobiech already scored a goal.
The internal scorer list, however, is headed by central defender Zukanovic (2 goals). Among other things, Lucas Biglia, a former Argentine national player, can be found in the roster. The only thing surprising is the man on the coaching post. Senol Can was initially only seen as an interim solution last season.
After his convincing performance as trainer for the black and red team, the board presented a new contract. For Can it is the first big challenge in the still young coaching career. FYI: Senol Can ended his playing career just under a year ago.
Okan Buruk can no longer gloss over his team’s start to the season so far. Neither on the international stage nor in the domestic league, the previous year’s champions of the Süper Lig could convince. Basaksehir had a very poor start to the season with three competitive games in a row. On Friday evening, the away game at the newly promoted and city rivals Karagümrük follows.
At the start of the season, Basaksehir left important points against Hatayspor, promoted and second division champion, and lost 2-0. Also in the last week the point was not won. In the city derby against Galatasaray, Basaksehir lost again 2-0 and fought against the lack of penetration of the offensive.
Although the team structure remained largely stable, Basaksehir’s offensive game hardly harmonized this season. How coach Okan Buruk will tackle this problem remains uncertain for the time being. On Friday evening, the 46-year-old wants to show a defiant reaction in the small city derby against Fatih Karagümrük.
This week, Monaco newcomer Nacer Chadli will be in the squad for the first time. Whether Buruk will use his new offensive star in the starting line-up remains to be seen for the time being. Right-back Rafael, who was signed by Olympique Lyon a few weeks ago, also got his player license during the week. There were no serious failures at Basaksehir on Friday evening.
