Gaziantep FK vs Boluspor Match Analysis & Prediction
22/12/2022 5:00 pm
Gaziantep FK will be looking to pick up another positive cup result when they play host to Boluspor at Gaziantep Stadyumu on Thursday.
While the hosts are sitting in 10 place in the Turkish Super Lig table on 16 points through 13 matches, the visitors occupy ninth place in the 1. Lig standings on 27 points after 17 games.
Gaziantep have actually not been in competitive action since November 13 when the league paused for the World Cup in Qatar, a time which they played out a 3-3 draw with Fatih Karagumruk away from home.
They have since played three friendly matches, firstly beating Al Batin 3-1 before claiming a 1-0 victory over Konyaspor, after which they went on to lose 2-1 to Hatayspor on December 14. After this cup tie, Gaziantep are set to host Besiktas on Christmas Day in their first league match after resumption.
Meanwhile, unlike their hosts, Boluspor did not go into the break during the World Cup but instead continued their domestic proceedings.
The visitors have recorded one win, two draw and two losses in their last five 1. Lig matches, with Boluspor entering the contest off the back of successive stalemates with Bandirmaspor and Eyupspor – 2-2 and 0-0 scorelines respectively.
Up next for Boluspor is the challenge of facing a high-tier side, but they will be feeling confident of picking up a positive result on Thursday after going unbeaten in their last two competitive matches.
