Our prediction for this Turkey Super Lig match:
Trabzonspor restarted the season in great manner, with the team defeating Goztepe 3-1 on the road. Huseyin Cimsir’s troops do not want their title dream to be ended, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Monday’s football match against Alanyaspor. Nigeria winger Nwakaeme scored his 11th goal of the season in the 3-1 victory over Goztepe, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Fellow winger Guilherme, on the other hand, misses the game through suspension.
As expected, Alanyaspor suffered a 2-0 loss to Istanbul Basaksehir in their first match after the coronavirus football break. Tamer Tuna’s men aim to keep their Europa League hopes alive, but given the amount of confidence in the away team’s dressing room, we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders. Yet another man to watch in the away side will be Norway international Alexander Sorloth, who has been scoring goals for fun.
Highlighted Team (Trabzonspor):
Founded on August 2, 1967, Trabzonspor are a Turkish club that compete in the Super Lig. The Karadeniz Firtinasi welcome their rivals at Medical Park Stadyumu, the venue which can hold up to 38,477 people. Trabzonspor were the dominant force in the Turkish top flight from 1975 to 1984, with the team clinching six domestic titles during that period.
The Turkish outfit booked their place in European competitions for the first time in the 1976/77, while making it to the Champions League group stages in the 2011/2012 season. Trabzonspor are well known for their claret and blue kits. After their foundation in 1967 English club Aston Villa sent a set of kits to Trabzonspor, which is the main reason why the two clubs wear the same colours.
Daniel Sturridge is the team’s most notable player. The former Liverpool man, who won the Champions League title with the Premier League side, joined the club in the summer of 2019 as a free agent.
