Preview: Kasimpasa vs. Gaziantep - prediction, team news, lineups

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

Kasimpasa host Gaziantep FK in the Turkish Super Lig at the Recep Tayyip Erdogan Stadyumu on Sunday, looking to extend their home streak over the visitors.

The home side are coming into this match off the back of three consecutive defeats, while the visitors also lost on home soil the last time out.


Match preview

Kasimpasa lost 2-0 to Konyaspor last weekend, as they failed to put an end to their run of three defeats in the Super Lig.

The Apaches' last victory in all competitions came on October 31, when first-half goals from Yasin Ozcan, Claudio Winck and Selim Dilli inspired them to a 3-0 triumph over Aksaray in the Turkish Cup fourth round.

Despite their drop-off in form, Kemal Ozdes's men are currently ninth in the Super Lig standings, level on 18 points with eighth-placed Antalyaspor and 10th-placed Rizespor after 13 matches.

Next up for Kasimpasa is an opponent they have beaten in their last two meetings, with both victories coming in front of their fans.

Ozdes will hope his men can find the net again on Sunday after failing to score for the first time in six matches across all competitions in their loss to Konyaspor.

Elsewhere, Gaziantep were condemned to their first defeat in four games across all competitions last time out, as they lost 1-0 to Ankaragucu at home in their first match after the international break.

Marius Sumudica's men were on a run of three successive victories across all competitions prior to last weekend's defeat, with two of those wins coming in the league.

With 15 points from 13 matches, Gaziantep are currently 14th in the Super Lig standings but could rise up to 11th with all three points this weekend.

Sumudica will hope his men can record successive wins on the road for the first time this season after a 3-0 victory against Alanyaspor in their last away match.

Team News

On the injury front, Ozdes will be unable to call upon the services of Duhan Aksu, who has an ankle issue, while Samuel Bastien continues to recover after coming off injured against Fenerbahce on October 8.

Aytac Kara is Kasimpasa's leading scorer with seven goals this season and should retain his spot in midfield for this match while Nuno Da Costa starts in attack.

Gaziantep remain without Turkish defender Ulas Zengin, who continues his lengthy spell on the sidelines after coming off with a severe injury in July's friendly against Orenburg.

He is joined on the club's injury list by Ertugrul Ersoy, who is currently recuperating from an ankle injury.

Denis Dragus and Alexandru Maxim, who have scored a combined five goals in the last four matches, have been instrumental for Gaziantep this season and will look to deliver the goods once again.


Kasimpasa possible starting lineup:
Gianniotis; Winck, Omeruo, Ciftpinar, Ozcan; Gul, Kara; Hajradinovic, Ngoy, Fall; Da Costa

Gaziantep possible starting lineup:
Nita; Eskihellac, Kizildag, N'Koulou, Djilobodji, Morais; Ozcicek, Soyalp, Maxim; Dragus, Gradel



SM words green background

We say: Kasimpasa 1-1 Gaziantep

Kasimpasa have struggled in recent games and are low on confidence coming into this match. However, they have enjoyed recent success at home against Sunday's opponents and that could help boost their morale.

Gaziantep were on a brilliant run prior to last weekend's defeat and their victory on the road last time out will increase their belief when they play away from home.

We predict that both sides will cancel out each other's efforts.
