Shortly after the recent Süper Lig game, Abdullah Avci had already made it to the point: The credit is used up, more room for error has Basaksehir no more. Already at the press conference Avci visibly disappointed by the performance of his team in the season final spurt. Again important points were left, this time even against a potential relegation candidate, who had come to Istanbul with numerous failures. A result that was hardly to be expected at such a strong season by Basaksehir. The strong seasonal performance is completely overshadowed by the recent negative trend. With Sivasspor now comes an opponent who could miss the league leaders the next damper.
Today’s Betting Tips Sivasspor vs Basaksehir
In the duel between Sivasspor and Basaksehir wave for a tip on the home side odds of up to 4.20. In the weak second half of the Anatolian clubs, the bookmakers’ prices are not a big surprise. In the games against the top clubs of Süper Lig Sivasspor has always shown a solid performance. For example, Besiktas had a strong showing in the last race but the Anatolian club was not rewarded with a point. A Sivasspor Vs. Basaksehir’s prediction of a home win by the home side is quite realistic in this match, especially since the league leaders have not shown promising performances in their last matches. On Friday night, at 7:30 pm, Sivasspor and Basaksehir will kick off the 31st matchday in the Süper Lig.
Sivasspor – Statistics & Current Form
For the Anatolian club, it is by no means round this season. There are still six points to a relegation zone, but already after this match day, the lead to three points can shrink. Although Hakan Keles continues to be optimistic, the current situation speaks for itself. In addition to the game against Basaksehir waiting for Galatasaray on the last matchday on the Anatolian club. Thus, Sivasspor meets in the last two home games of this season on the two leaders of the Süper Lig. In addition, it goes in the coming week in the direct relegation duel against Göztepe and the former Sivas coach Tamer Tuna. Speaking of Tuna: With the current Göztepe coach Sivasspor has started the new season and showed promising performances. After missing success experiences, however, the ways parted. Hakan Keles was supposed to be just an interim solution, but Keles had earned a contract until the end of the season due to the uptrend at the end of the year. The bad second half of Sivasspor was certainly not predictable, especially since the performances under Keles at first could be quite impressive. In the season final spurt, the Anatolian club must now find again, otherwise it remains only a matter of time until the team is in an uncomfortable position.
Many attribute the negative trend of Sivasspor on the departure of Robinho to Basaksehir. At the Anatolian club it was not always round with the experienced Brazilian. The team is simply in a small crisis of form and has a sense of achievement needed to recharge a little more confidence. Already in the match against Besiktas Sivasspor had shown quite good results. The offensive game of the “black eagle” could not really be prevented by the weak defensive of the Anatolian club, which is why a defeat against the Istanbul traditional club was almost foreseeable. After the draw at the Black Sea club from Rize is now a home win against championship leaders Basaksehir wave. Already in the first round match Sivasspor landed the big coup in Istanbul and forced the leaders to their knees. If it works at home, Sivasspor can beat Basaksehir odds of 4.20.
Expected formation of Sivasspor:
↪ Acar – Ciftci, Bjärsmyr, Braz, Papp – N’Dinga, Arslan – Kilinc, Rybalka, Douglas – Diabate
Last matches of Sivasspor:

Basaksehir – Statistics & Current Form
Again it should be nothing with the big title coup of Basaksehir. Although the current Süper Lig Champion 2019 betting odds for the league leaders, the latest negative trend in the Avci-Elf is frightening. No trace of the playful dominance of the championship leader. Best defense? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that. Even the potential relegation candidate Göztepe was able to score two goals against Basaksehir despite numerous offensive failures. Again, the bad results in the final spurt of the season ensure that probably the championship lead to Galatasaray is delivered. At the latest on the penultimate round, where Basaksehir will face Galatasaray in a direct duel, the title dream of the “surprise team” of the current season could be over. Whether Basaksehir in the coming season then continues to be a title aspirant and will keep up with the big traditional clubs from Istanbul, then remains rather questionable, especially since a sell-out of service providers in the absence of Champions League qualification is quite likely. The score of 18-8-4 and the goal difference of 45:18 has little significance in the case of Basaksehir. Only one of the last five Süper Lig games could win the league leaders. In four of the five games, there was at least one goal for the otherwise strong defense. However, the defensive’s last weak performance is not surprising, especially since Alexandru Epureanu is missing an important support in defense due to injury.
The 31-year-old defender has ended the season due to injury. In the season final spurt without the important defensive man to get along, for Basaksehir will not be easy, even if the squad width of the championship leader is second to none. Before the most important game of the season against Galatasaray Basaksehir may allow in the upcoming two games no more point losses, otherwise the league lead could be given before the showdown against Galatasaray. Abdullah Avci was visibly dissatisfied with the performance of his team recently. Whether the players have taken his speech to heart, we will see in the away game in Sivas. However, with Sivasspor beating Basaksehir, having lost a lot of points in the last few games, it does not seem like a good prediction in favor of the visitors at the given odds.
Expected formation of Basaksehir:
↪ Günok – Clichy, Tasci, Tekdemir, Caicara – Belozoglu – Elia, Mossoro, Kahveci, Visca – Robinho
Last matches of Basaksehir:
⚽️ 26.04.2019 – Istanbul Basaksehir vs. Göztepe 0: 2 (Süper Lig)
⚽️ 21.04.2019 – Istanbul Basaksehir vs. Rizespor 1: 1 (Süper Lig)
⚽️ 13.04.2019 – Besiktas Vs. Istanbul Basaksehir 2: 1 (Süper Lig)

Sivasspor vs Basaksehir Our Betting Tips Explained
Sivasspor is an unpleasant opponent at home. This has already been felt by the traditional clubs of the Süper Lig and so it will probably be the league leaders. The away game against Sivas is quite a trailblazer for the league leaders, especially as pursuer Galatasaray meets this matchday in the city derby on Besiktas. The hosts from Sivas are still in a relegation battle and will do everything possible to take something countable against the leaders. Even relegation candidate Göztepe had recently taken three points against Basaksehir with a fighting performance.

🔺 Sivasspor celebrated a tight 1-0 win in the first round at Basaksehir.
🔺 At the next defeat Basaksehir could give the championship lead to Galatasaray.
