Yeni Malatyaspor vs Fenerbahce Prediction & Betting tips
Fenerbahce Istanbul have to play against the East Anatolian club Malatyasor on Matchday 25 of the Turkish Süper Lig. Fenerbahce have been relegated to Besiktas in Istanbul after two defeats in a row and are now six points behind leaders Galatasaray. Although they still hold a Europa League place with fourth place, the team to Aykut Kocaman can not be satisfied with that, after having repeatedly formulated his ambitions for a championship this year.
After the tough games in the league and cup against archrival Besiktas, you obviously left a lot of nerve and strength. The home defeat against Akisharspor in the last game suggests that at least. Malatyaspor, on the other hand, is a very convincing climber of Ligue 1 of the previous season and is consistent in the midfield of the Süper Lig with strong performances recently. Malatyaspor are currently back in ninth place. The distance to the next higher places is just two points and the table positions eight and seven are within reach. In eighth place, Akisharspor were able to fight off with a surprising win over Fenerbahce and a good series, bringing the table in midfield closer together.
Malatyaspor’s home advantage and strong win streak in the back against Fenerbahce mean he can go into the top match with confidence. The eleven from eastern Anatolia have lost just one of their last nine games and have won five of these games, including against stronger opponents such as Galatasaray or Kayserispor. At home, Malatyaspor have also won three of their last five games, drawing a draw against both Kasimpasa and Osmanlispor. Nonetheless, Fenerbahce will be very difficult to play, especially in the game ahead. Malatyaspor are not very flexible in the attack and everything is geared to the Moroccan top scorer Khalib Boutaib, who has already scored eleven goals in 22 games for the club. However, the offensive power of Malatyaspor is exhausted too often here. Leaving aside the 3-1 win against bottom-line Karabükspor, Malatyaspor scored just eight goals in nine games, which is certainly not enough to go much further.
After a long and positive run for Fenerbahce, heavy setbacks followed in the last three competitive games. Twice against Besiktas a lead was lost and several times Fenerbahce went through the nerves. That the prestige games against Besiktas have cost tremendous strength, then showed in the last home game against Akhisarspor, which was lost 3-2. Since the team under Kocaman now recover a few days and could analyze the last games now certainly in detail, you will approach Malatyaspor more concentrated to the game. It certainly was not on the Fenerbahce offensive. This still worked with strikers like Giuliano.
However, the defense had too many negligence, which has been reflected in the seven goals conceded in the last three games. Two injured defenders, especially strong center-back Ismail Köybasi, are limiting the flexibility for Kocaman in the backward game. At least the return of the top striker Vincent Jansen after a long injury is slowly approaching, although this will of course not yet come up against Malatyaspor. Fenerbahce are the second strongest team in the Süper Lig away from home and will try to reduce Malatyaspor’s gap of three points to city rivals Besiktas, even if they do not want to finish the championship goal.
