Fenerbahce v Kayserispor


On Friday evening, Fenerbahce and Kayserispor meet at the Ulker Stadium, as the home team looks to boost their chances of landing a European spot in the Turkish Super Lig.

Fenerbahce are currently nine points outside the last European spot after a poor recent run of form in the Super Lig. The home side heads into this clash on the back of a seven-game run without a league win. In their last league outing, the Istanbul-based team suffered a 1-0 defeat at Konyaspor.

Fenerbahce have failed to keep a clean sheet in that seven-game winless, having conceded at least twice in five of the seven games.

The home side also has a mixed recent home record in the Turkish top-flight, as they have won five of their last eight home matches in the Super Lig. However, they have failed to win in their last three league games on home soil.

Kayserispor are bottom of the Turkish top-flight table after a poor campaign. However, the visitors still have a chance of beating relegation, as they are just three points from safety.

Their recent form in the Turkish top-flight has not been that bad either, as they have won three of their last five league games while suffering just one defeat in their last six games in the Super Liga.

Kayserispor have struggled for results away from home, suffering defeats in 10 of their last 11 matches on their travels in the Turkish top-flight.
