Erzurumspor vs Ankaragucu Predictions


This is expected to be a very tight battle between two sides fighting to avoid relegation. Goal scoring is not Erzurumspor’s strength but they don’t concede many at home either. I’m backing Ankaragucu to keep it tight and come away with a point.

  • Erzurumspor have drawn 2 of their last 3 home matches (Turkish Super Lig).
  • Erzurumspor have failed to score more than 1 goal in each of their last 4 home matches (Turkish Super Lig).
  • Erzurumpsor are unbeaten in 7 of their last 10 home matches (all competitions).
  • Ankaragucu have seen BTTS  Yes in  4 of their last 5 away matches (Turkish Super Lig).

Head to Head


Ankaragucu lead 2-1 in their six matches against Erzurumspor. There have been four drawn matches.

Erzurumspor won 2-1 away when they met in September 2020.

Erzurumspor Form


Erzurumspor are placed second from bottom in the Turkish Super Lig but relegation is far from a certainty. They are on 17 points, only two points off 17th place.

Over recent matches Erzurumspor have shown some fight after going four matches without a win in all competitions. They lost 1-0 at Istanbul Basaksehir and then 3-0 at home to Fenerbahce before being knocked out of the Turkish Cup with a 4-1 loss at Alanyaspor.

Erzurumspor returned to league action with a very impressive 2-1 victory at Kasimpasa and then drew their last match 1-1 at home to Alanyaspor.

Emrah Bassan gave Erzurumspor the lead on 31 minutes and they held that lead until the 58th minute. A point was still a good result considering their predicament.

Erzurumspor Injuries & Team News


Erzurumspor manager, Mesut Bakkal’s only injury concern is that of Gabriel Obertan. Aatif Chahechouhe is his most likely replacement.

Ankaragucu Form


Ankaragucu are one place and one point above their opponents on the Super Lig table. Relegation beckons if their results don’t improve after losing four of their last five league matches.

This poor run began with a 2-0 defeat at Gaziantep before losing 2-1 at home to Istanbul Basaksehir. Ankaragucu then lost their third match in a row, this time 3-1 at Fenerbahce.

Their solitary win in their last five matches came in a 1-0 success against Kasimpasa at home. Ankaragucu’s last match ended in a 4-3 defeat at Alanyaspor after being 2-0 up early on.

A Joseph Paintsil brace gave Ankaragucu a 2-0 lead in the first 30 minutes but by the hour mark they were 3-2 down. Aliou Badji managed to equalise but Alanyaspor scored another 10 minutes from the end to take all three points. 

Ankaragucu Injuries & Team News


Right-back Stelios Kitsiou is out injured which means Zvonimir Sarlija will likely start.

The good news is that centre-back Atakan Ridvan Cankaya returns for this match after suspension. Fringe player, Emre Gural is suspended but he was never likely to start in this fixture.
