Fatih Karagumruk vs Trabzonspor Match Analysis & Prediction
28/12/2022 8:00 pm
Fatih Karagumruk will be looking to put an end to their four-game winless league run when they play host to Trabzonspor at Ataturk Olimpiyat Stadi on Wednesday.
The hosts are currently sitting in the Turkish Super Lig relegation zone, while the defending champions are in fifth place after avoiding defeat in their last eight league matches.
Fatih Karagumruk returned to competitive action with a victory over Usak Spor in the Turkish Cup last week, but they were unable to follow that win with a positive result in their league encounter with Adana Demirspor on Sunday.
As a result, Andrea Pirlo’s side are now winless in four Turkish Super Lig matches, and they are currently two points adrift of safety.
Karagumruk also have the worst defensive record in the Super Lig after shipping 29 goals across their 14 matches this season, and they have conceded at least two goals in their previous four league matches.
While Pirlo’s side are struggling defensively, only two teams have scored more home goals than them this season, which will provide the hosts with confidence ahead of this contest.
Meanwhile, Trabzonspor advanced to the last 16 of the Turkish Cup through a 3-0 victory over Samsunspor last week, before they secured a 2-0 league win against Fenerbahce at the weekend.
That victory has left the defending Turkish Super Lig champions in fifth place, with four points separating them from leaders Galatasaray.
The visitors will now try to continue their fine run of form on Wednesday, and after losing just one of their last five away matches, they will be confident of extending their unbeaten run to nine games in the Turkish Super Lig.
