Submitted on Mon, 02/15/2021 - 16:51

Istanbul Basaksehirare up against Ankaragucu this weekend hoping to make the most of the confidence provided by last week’s victory over BB Erzurumspor. Istanbul Basaksehir were going through a terrible run of form as they failed to win in seven consecutive league matches.

As a result, the team was slipping quite rapidly down the Turkish Super Lig table. They were just a few points away from the relegation zone when they took on BB Erzurumspor in a home match.

BB Erzurumspor had been facing relegation trouble throughout the campaign and they ended up providing a great option forIstanbul Basaksehir to end their poor form.

Istanbul Basaksehircoach OkanBuruk saw his team take the lead just before half-time through Fredrik Gulbrandsen.

This turned out to be the only goal of the game, as the hosts were able to stay on top for most of the evening. As a result of this victory,Istanbul Basaksehirhave now moved six points away from the bottom places. However, the threat of relegation is still alive for the team. The match againstAnkaragucu provides for the opportunity to build on this position, as Ankaragucu are also in relegation trouble. The team managed by NecatiErkmen is in the bottom four coming into this match.

Even though the squad of both teams looks completely different in terms of quality, this match is expected to be a close contest since both clubs are struggling for form and confidence.Ankaragucu have been unable to register in a clean sheet in the last five matches. Meanwhile,Istanbul Basaksehirhave ended up conceding a truckload of goals in the last few games. Even if they were able to keep a clean sheet againstErzurumspor, there are still many problems at the back even with quality players like Rafael Da Silva in the ranks.
