Gaziantep hosts Istanbul Basaksehir in round 33 of Turkish Super Lig. The match will be played on Thursday, April 8th at Gaziantep Stadyumu (Gaziantep)
Gaziantep can still make it to the top five teams of the Super League. Now the team has a stellar, although not very successful coach, Ricardo Sa Pinto - the Portuguese replaced Marius Sumudica during the championship. And the roster is rather powerful. Gaziantep can count on Romanians Tosca and Maxim, Djilobodji and Mirallas, who played in the top championships, and ex-player Dynamo Kyiv, Andre. So far, the club's results are pretty average. But there was only one defeat in the last six meetings, which leaves the team some chances to eventually rise to the top five. The main thing is to make fewer mistakes, as in the match against Yeni Malatyaspor, when Gaziantep was leading 1-0 and 2-1 but was limited to only a draw.

Istanbul Bashakshehir players were able to finally achieve their goal in 2020. It was not from the first attempt that this upstart managed to get ahead of the usual giants. However, it seems that now the Gray Owls are simply exhausted. It was expected that Istanbul could take one or a few steps back after the triumph. But the team dropped to the lower part of the standings and even visited the relegation zone. Before the pause for the matches of the national teams, there were new failures - relegation from the cup and one point scored in two rounds of the Super League (2-3 with Besiktas at home and 0-0 with Denizlispor away). All the more important was the success for Basaksehir on Sunday, when they managed to beat Yeni Malatyaspor. By the way, the visitors leveled the score, and only the final assault helped the Istanbul club - Sahiner and Aleksic scored two goals in the last minutes and brought a 3-1 victory. But didn't the Owls spend too much energy?
Istanbul has not lost to Gaziantep in the last seven head-to-head matches. Moreover, the Gray Owls won four times in a row. But Gaziantep managed to win 2-1 in Istanbul in December. The upcoming game should not be boring either. Both clubs need points, which means that they need to strive for victory. Let's risk betting on Over 2.5 goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
