Antalyaspor took just a point in a 1:1 draw away to Konyaspor last weekend away from home, even though the team had all the chances to walk away with something more, at least on the paper before the game has started.
Overall, it must be said that the home team had more chances created and looked more dangerous, even taking the lead in 75th minute with a goal from Fofana, but the guests were willing to risk more once they stood back in the scoreline and leveled up the result via Eto’o ten minutes later. The team is now at fourteenth position at the table with two points more than relegating placed Osmanlispor and surely want something more out of this clash.
Host should be playing in 4-4-2 formation with Eto’o and Kadah as forwards. Injured are defensive midfielder Zeki Yildrim (2/0), central backs Salih Dursun (4/0), Johan Dhourou (6/1) and offensive midfielder Danilo (5/0).
Fenerbahce, on the other side, had relatively easy game last weekend on Sunday afternoon when the side welcomed Sivasspor and recorded a 4:1 victory. They took the lead first, in 31st minute via Dirar, while the guests leveled up at the start of the second halftime via Bifouma.
However, once the hosts upped up the tempo in the second halftime it was all over for the opponent who conceded three more goals, all three via Soldado. The team is now at sixth position with 5-5-2 record and with six points less than second and Champions League placed Basakehir, so a victory here is a must for them.
Guests are set to play in 4-2-3-1 formation with Soldado as central striker, plus Dirar, Giuliano and Chahechouhe as offensive midfielders. Forward Robin van Persie (2/0) is injured for this one, same as right full back Mauricio Isla (11/0) and midfielder Mathieu Valbuena (11/3).
