Antalyaspor is approaching this match after a 1:1 draw in the second round of the Super Lig against Besiktas when they played away from their home.
The hosts were a better team during the first part of the match, and quite deservedly took the lead first in the 33rd minute over Larin. In the second part of the encounter, a more balanced play was seen, as the visitors significantly raised their level of play and with a goal over Bayrakdar in the 85th minute set the final result in this one quite deservedly too.
Antalyaspor is at 8th place in the standings, having four points out of two matches.
Forward Drole remains out injured, as well as offensive Gurler, both without playing in the new season anyway.
Denizlispor is coming to this clash after a draw in the previous match against Trabzonspor, back at their home stadium.
Unfortunately, this match passed without goals, as both sides looked too passive to be more dangerous in this one. The hosts had a player less on the pitch from the 68th minute, but were still able to keep their sheet clean and took a point in this clash, with Trabzonspor being to blame for such an outcome.
They are currently in the 18th place in the overall standings, having only one point after the first two rounds.
Denizlispor team news
The guests won’t count at suspended offensive midfielder Sacko (2/0) due to suspension.
The home team is looking way better
Since the new season started, the visitors showed quite a vulnerability in the backline. They conceded as many as five goals in their first match against Goztepe, and overly looking, can’t be that reliable at the back. A handicap that Antalyaspor will certainly try to exploit, and at least in my eyes, record a victory in this clash, as their offensive line is in better shape since the season started.
