Kayserispor vs Kasimpasa Match Analysis & Prediction
19/04/2023 5:00 pm
Kayserispor play host to Kasimpasa in the Turkish Super Lig on Wednesday, with both teams aiming to bounce back from huge defeats.
While Kayserispor suffered a 6-0 defeat to league leaders Galatasaray on Friday, Kasimpasa were beaten 5-0 by Adana Demirspor a day later.
Kayserispor fell 3-0 behind inside the opening 42 minutes, with former Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi bagging a brace either side of former Norwich City forward Milot Rashica’s goal, bfore Majid Hosseini’s dismissal 10 minutes into first half injury-time left the visitors with little chance of mounting an already unlikely comeback.
Icardi immediately made the most of his team’s one-man advantage by sealing his hat-track on the stroke of half-time, with Kerem Akturkoglu and Nicolo Zaniolo adding gloss to Galatasaray’s victory after the interval.
Kasimpasa are not entirely safe from relegation just yet, with their 5-0 defeat to Adana Demirspor leaving them just five points clear of the dreaded drop zone.
For Kasimpasa, avoiding relegation is their only meaningful goal between now and the end of the season, with Kemal Ozdes determined to guide the club across the line after being appointed as manager for the third time earlier this year.
However, having been beaten in six of their last seven away trips, the 52-year-old and his players may not have much confidence of returning from Kayseri with a positive result in midweek.

Kasimpasa will travel without Ali Gholizadeh due to an ongoing meniscus injury, while Sadik Ciftpinar and Mickael Malsa both remain fitness concerns.
Ozdes could consider recalling Stephane Bahoken into his starting XI in order to provide a more natural focal point in attack, with Mickael Tirpan potentially sacrificed from midfield.
