Preview: Kayserispor vs. Antalyaspor - prediction, team news, lineups

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

Kayserispor will be aiming to bounce back after suffering a defeat in the league last weekend when they welcome Antalyaspor on Sunday.

The visitors enter the weekend in 11th position, and they will be aiming for consecutive victories in the Turkish Super Lig after a comfortable 3-0 victory in their last league outing.

Match preview

After drawing consecutive games, Kayserispor suffered a narrow defeat last Saturday, when they travelled away to face Rizespor.

Selim Ay's strike proved enough to clinch all three points, with the disappointing result ending Kayserispor's four-game unbeaten run in all competitions.

That defeat leaves Yalcin Kosukavak's side perilously close to the relegation zone with only three points separating themselves and the bottom four ahead of the weekend's round of fixtures.

Although against fourth-tier opposition, Sunday's hosts did receive a confidence boost in midweek when they swept aside Igdir FK in the Turkish Cup, with Emre Demir and Gokhan Sazdagi grabbing a goal apiece before Majid Hosseini wrapped up the 4-0 victory with a brace.

Sunday's home fixture will be a welcome sight for Kayserispor given the fact that they have only lost once at the Kadir Has Stadium in the league this season, and if they are to avoid relegation then their home form will be crucial.

The side aiming to condemn Kayserispor to a second home defeat is Antalyaspor, who will be buoyant after scoring seven goals in their last two competitive fixtures.

Last weekend, Bunyamin Balci, Paul Mukairu and Sherel Floranus all netted to guide Antalyaspor to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Alanyaspor.

Buoyed from that positive result, they then experienced their own 4-0 cup victory in midweek over third-tier Amed, with Houssam Ghacha, Mustafa Erdilman grabbing a goal each, while Gokdeniz Bayrakdar netted a brace to ensure Nuri Sahin's side progress to the fifth round.

Sahin will be impressed with his team's recent defensive solidity, collecting three clean sheets from their last four competitive fixtures.

Although, they have only picked up once clean sheet away from home, and their away form will be a concern, with only one league win on their travels this season.

Team News

Mame Thiam and Emrah Bassan are both missing for Kayserispor due to injury issues.

An ankle problem means Miguel Cardoso will not feature, while Bernard Mensah is set to miss the rest of the season.

Mario Gavranovic is expected to lead the line for the hosts, and the Switerzland international will be aiming to add to the three league goals that he has scored this season.

The visitors will be without the services of Enzo Crivelli and Harun Alpsoy, who are both out injured.

Antalyaspor are also missing Ufuk Akyol, who is out for the remainder of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Mukairu is likely to be the away side's main goal threat after scoring in each of his last three appearances.

Kayserispor possible starting lineup:
Lung Jr; Bulut, Hosseini, Kolovetsios, Carole; Akdag, Campanharo, Kemen; Pektemek, Parlak, Gavranovic

Antalyaspor possible starting lineup:
Boffin; Sari, Kudryashov, Gomes; Balci, Ribeiro, Poli, Vural; Sinik, Amilton, Mukairu

SM words green background

We say: Kayserispor 1-1 Antalyaspor

Kayserispor may boast a promising home record, but given the fact Antalyspor are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Sunday's opponents, we think that this contest will end all square.
