Preview: Alanyaspor vs. Sivasspor - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Saturday's Turkish Super Lig clash between Alanyaspor and Sivasspor, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Alanyaspor and Sivasspor kick off round 15 of the Turkish Super Lig season with their meeting at the Bahcesehir School Arena on Saturday.

Both teams head into the clash off the back of impressive victories last time out and will be looking to pick up where they left off.

Match preview

Alanyaspor secured safe passage into the next round of the Turkish cup with a 6-0 victory over Osmaniyespor on Wednesday.

Prior to that, Bulent Korkmaz's men were beaten 3-0 by Antalyaspor on Saturday, which was their second consecutive defeat on the road.

Sitting fifth on the log at the moment, the Alanya-based club set out to continue their surge up the table against a side who they beat in both of last season's league meetings by a combined score of 5-1.

Having amassed 13 points from a possible 18 on home turf so far, Saturday's hosts will fancy themselves to pick up a third consecutive victory in this fixture.

Sivasspor ended a five-game winless streak in the league with a 4-0 thrashing of Hatayspor at the Yeni 4 Eylul Stadyumu on Sunday.

Pedro Henrique opened the scoring from 12 yards midway through the first half before Mustafa Yatabare made sure of the result with a superb hat-trick.

Riza Calimbay's men have moved three points clear of danger as a result and will seek to put some daylight between themselves and the relegation zone in the coming weeks.

Saturday's visitors, who have picked up only five of their 16 points away from home, have it all to do against a side as rampant on home turf as their hosts.

Team News

Thirty-year-old Koray Altinay is ruled out with a knee injury, while Sefa Yilmaz is yet to recover from an ankle problem.

Aaron Appidangoye is yet to feature for Sivasspor due to an Achilles tendon injury and is not expected to feature this weekend.

Alanyaspor's Tayfur Bingol has served his one-game suspension and is in line to return to the starting XI for this one.

Khouma Babacar scored the clincher in the last edition of this fixture and the Senegalese forward is one to keep an eye on.

Alanyaspor possible starting lineup:
Marafona; Bingol, Mevlja, Awaziem, Juanfran; Bekiroglu, Aksoy, Akbaba; Davidson, Candeias, Babacar

Sivasspor possible starting lineup:
Vural; Ciftci, Camara, Goutas, Osmanpasa; Fajr, Kesgin, Ulvestad; Henrique, Yatabare, Gradel

SM words green background

We say: Alanyaspor 2-1 Sivasspor

Judging by previous meetings between the teams, it is hard to envisage any other outcome rather than a victory for the home side, and we expect them to carry the day at the end of the 90 minutes.
