Tobias Gourlay reckons there could be an upset in the Turkish Super Lig this evening
"Karagumruk are W14-D5-L4 on home turf since the start of last season"
Back Fatih Karagumruk Istanbul @ 3.1511/5 to beat Basaksehir
Fatih Karagumruk Istanbul v Basaksehir
In France yesterday, Lyon kept their first clean sheet in nine home games. They beat Brondby 3-0 and our bet went down with the visitors.
We're in Turkey today and hoping to earn our dinner with a trip to Istanbul's Ataturk Olympic Stadium. In their first season in the top flight, Fatih Karagumruk Istanbul won both league meetings with Basaksehir last term. We like the big price on the hosts to win tonight's third encounter.
Ninth-placed Karagumruk are W14-D5-L4 on home turf since the start of last season, taking seven points from a possible nine so far this term. Going back into the previous campaign, the Black & Reds are on an unbeaten streak of nine matches (W6-D3-L0).
Basaksehir came home 12th last season and are currently running 15th, having lost each of their first three road trips of the new campaign. Since the start of the last campaign, they have lost just over half their away games (W7-D4-L12). Against teams like Karagumruk that finished above them last term, they went W2-D1-L8. Their status as favourites to win this one looks shaky so we'll take the juicy odds on a home win. It's not a banker, but that price is too tempting to ignore.
