Fatih Karagumruk vs Gaziantep Predictions


Fatih are playing well and come up against a Gaziantep side who have struggled since manager Marius Șumudica left earlier this month. I am tipping a high scoring home win.

  • Fatih Karagumruk have won 3 of their last 5 matches (Turkish Super Lig).
  • Fatih Karagumruk have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 6 home matches (all competitions).
  • Gaziantep have seen over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches (Turkish Super Lig).
  • Gaziantep have lost their last 2 away matches (Turkish Super Lig).

Head to Head


Fatih Karagumruk have only faced Gaziantep once before with the match ending 2-2 in September 2020 in the Turkish Super Lig. Gaziantep led 2-1 at home after 89 minutes before Fatih scored in the final minute.

Fatih Karagumruk Form


Fatih Karagumruk are 8th on the Turkish Super Lig table after their promotion to the top division this season. It has been a cracking season for the newcomers and they will want to keep it up into the latter stages.

Having started the new year with two defeats in row, Fathih Karagumruk bounced back with a 2-1 home win against Konyaspor. That was followed by a fine 3-1 away victory at Genclerbirligi. 

Fatih were then beaten 4-1 at home by title the challenging Besiktas. A 2-1 victory at Denizlispor followed as Fabio Borini and Alassane Ndao scored.

In their last match, Fatih drew 0-0 at Yeni Malatyaspor. It was a match of few chances as the teams canceled each other out over 90 minutes.

Fatih Karagumruk Injuries & Team News


Fatih Karagumruk have signed striker Kemal Ademi on loan from Fenerbahce and he could go straight into the starting XI.

Lucas Biglia returned in midfield for the last game but Cristobal Jorquera remains out injured in the engine room. Ervin Zukanovic is missing and Vegar Eggen Hedenstad is a doubt in defence.

Gaziantep Form


Gaziantep sit 6th on the Super Lig table but have had a dip in results of late. A run of eight wins and three draws in 11 matches has been followed by three defeats in their last five.

Gaziantep lost 2-1 away at Sivasspor to end a 15 match unbeaten run in the Super Lig. The departure of coach Marius Șumudica followed that result for off-field reasons. 

They then won 2-1 at home against Kayserispor before losing 3-0 at Rizespor. Gaziantep followed that up with a 1-1 home draw against Hatayspor.

In their last match, Gaziantep went down 2-1 at home to Galatasaray. Alexandru Maxim scored a late consolation goal from the penalty spot.

Gaziantep Injuries & Team News


Gaziantep are missing striker Andre for this match but he was usually used as an impact substitute. Key centre-back Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik is a serious doubt for coach Sa Pinto.

Another player who is racing against time to be fit is attacking midfielder Furkan Soyalp. 

Kevin Mirallas is fit to play as a wide forward role after missing the last match.
