Preview: Istanbul Basaksehir vs. Hatayspor - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Turkish Super Lig clash between Istanbul Basaksehir and Hatayspor, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Istanbul Basaksehir and Hatayspor will do battle at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium on Sunday afternoon in round 15 of the 2023-24 Turkish Super Lig season.

Both teams emerged victorious in their last outings and will be looking to pick up where they left off by securing all three points this weekend.

Match preview

Istanbul Basaksehir breezed through into the next round of the Turkish Cup thanks to a 2-0 victory over lower league side Sanliurfaspor on Thursday.

Cagdas Atan's men opened the scoring just past the half-hour mark through Dimitrios Pelkas after which Emirhan Ilkhan sealed the deal 18 minutes from time.

Prior to that, the Orange-Navy Blues were on the receiving end of a 3-2 defeat against Rizespor, which left them 17th in the Turkish Super Lig table.

Awaiting them next is the challenge of an opposing outfit who are without a win from the most recent five editions of this fixture across all competitions.

Having come out on top in each of their last two matches on home turf by a combined score of 6-1, Sunday's hosts will back themselves to secure maximum points in front of their fans.

Hatayspor just about did enough to see off the threat of Duzcespor in Wednesday's Turkish Cup knockout tie at the Mersin Stadyumu which ended 2-1.

Volkan Demirel's men got their noses in front through Armin Hodzic but were soon pegged back by Yakup Zorlu before Hodzic grabbed the winner in the 58th minute.

This came off the back of a thrilling 3-3 share of the spoils against Antalyaspor for Guneyin Yildizi, who occupy 10th place in the standings.

Currently on a run of three straight defeats on the road, Sunday's visitors will be keen to turn their away fortunes around on their trip to the capital.
