On May 17, Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium (Istanbul) will host the match of the 34th round of the Turkish Süper Lig, in which Istanbul Basaksehir will compete with Umraniyespor. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The team was added to the not-so-long list of those who won the championship title in Turkey. Moreover, that happened not so long ago (by the way, far from the first attempt – Basaksehir spent 4 years in the top three of the Süper Lig), in 2020. At the same time, the long-awaited success was followed by a fast decline: the team fell to the 12th position. However, there was an upsurge already in the previous season. The club finished in the 4th place a year ago. Nowadays, it will obviously be impossible to repeat the higher mentioned result, because Istanbul lags behind not only the trio of neighbouring giants, but also great-surprising Adana Demirspor. It has recently won three times in a row (taking into account a 1-0 victory in the match against Ankaragucu in the Turkish Cup). There happened a minimal defeat on May 8, but that was made by the leader of this championship, Galatasaray.
The club is celebrating its 85th anniversary this year. And only now it has got the right to play in the Süper Lig. To appreciate the break-through, it is enough to note that “the Red and Whites” played at the level of the 6th division of the country in 2010. The task was obvious – to gain a foothold in the taken positions. For this very reason, the contracts with a number of newcomers, including legionnaires, were signed up. For instance, the most experienced Moldavian player, Epureanu, as well as Larry Kayode, rented from Shakhtar Donetsk, are the players of the team now. The higher mentioned decisions are not enough so far, and the debutant, which got 26 points in 31 rounds, is staying in the relegation zone. This is already 8 points less than the result of Kasimpasa, which is on the “borderline” of the relegation zone, in the 15th place. The previous round brought a victory in the battle with Sivasspor at the home arena, a devastating one – 4-1, but all 4 matches before had been lost.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Without taking into account the Turkish Cup match in 2014, the clubs played for the first time in December. Istanbul won in the away struggle with a 3-1 score there.
Bookmakers do not expect surprises from these opponents. Let’s agree and bet that Basaksehir will win (odd: 1.67).
