Trabzonspor vs Giresunspor Match Analysis & Prediction
05/01/2023 8:00 pm
Trabzonspor will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Turkish Super Lig when they take on Giresunspor on Thursday.
While the hosts enter the contest off the back of a disappointing defeat to Fatih Karagumruk, the visitors come into this one having claimed victory over Gaziantep FK.
Trabzonspor have enjoyed a decent 2022-23 campaign and sit sixth in the Turkish Super Lig, having picked up 26 points from 15 matches.
However, Abdullah Avci’s side have had a slightly inconsistent form this season, which has left them seven points behind league leaders Galatasaray.
Last time out, the Black Sea Storm suffered a 4-1 defeat to Fatih Karagumruk, as goals from Magomed Ozdoyev, Fabio Borini, Matteo Ricci and Jean Kouassi rendered a Marc Bartra equaliser redundant.
Meanwhile, Giresunspor make the trip to Trabzonspor in mixed form and will be looking to move themselves up the table with a positive result on Thursday.
In their most recent game, a late winner from Riad Bajic sealed a dramatic 2-1 victory at home to Gaziantep as the hosts finished 2022 on a high.
However, their exploits in front of goal leave much to be disired this season, with Giresunspor having scored just 16 goals so far in the league.
Should they manage to beat Trabzonspor on Thursday, Giresunspor could leapfrog Alanyaspor into ninth as they have a game in hand over their divisional rivals.
