Istanbul Basaksehir to Win
Istanbul Basaksehir are involved in a tense four-way battle for the fourth and final continental qualification berth in the Turkish Super Lig this season and The Grey Owls can land a crucial victory to aid their push against Hatayspor on Sunday. The visitors have taken just two points from their last seven away assignments and they were tossed aside 3-0 when they last faced Istanbul Basaksehir in December.
Over 1.5 Istanbul Basaksehir Goals
Istanbul Basaksehir rammed three goals without reply past Hatayspor when the teams last locked horns before Christmas and Erdinc Sozer’s side could enjoy another productive afternoon in the final third against their struggling opponents on Sunday. Hatayspor have shipped at least two goals in six of their last seven tests on the road and that record makes backing Basaksehir in the over 1.5 team goals market a must.
Stefano Okaka to Score Anytime
Italian attacker Stefano Okaka was among the goalscorers when Istanbul Basaksehir put Hatayspor to the sword in December and the experienced campaigner can add to his tally at the Star of the South’s expense again on Sunday. The 32-year-old has already scored ten times in the Super Lig this term and Okaka can swell his tally to 11 this weekend.
