Fenerbahce vs Istanbul Basaksehir Predictions


Fenerbahce’s home form has been poor of late while Istanbul Basaksehir have lost six of their last eight on the road in the Turkish Super Lig. This match ending in a score draw is my tip.

  • Fenerbahce have conceded 9 goals in their last 3 home matches (Turkish Super Lig).
  • Istanbul Basaksehir have seen BTTS in 11 of their last 12 matches (all competitions).
  • Istanbul Basaksehir have drawn 2 of their last 3 matches (Turkish Super Lig).

Head to Head


Fenerbahce lead 13-10 in their 27 matches against IstanbuL Basaksehir along with four draws.

Their last match took place in January 2020 where Fenerbahce walked away with a 2-0 home win. Max Kruse and Vedat Muriqi were the goal scorers.

Fenerbahce Form


Fenerbahce sit third in the Turkish Super Lig, three points off top spot Alanyaspor. The title is still well within Fenerbahce’s sights but two defeats in their last two league matches will be cause for concern.

It is at the back where Fenerbahce’s biggest problems lie. Going forward they are the second highest scorers in the league but they have also let 19 goals in at the other end, 10 and 11 more than the two teams above them.

Results have not been great of late with one league win in their last four matches. Igor Kokoskov’s men lost 4-3 at home to Besiktas before beating Denizlispor 2-0 away. That positive result was followed by a 3-0 home defeat to Yeni Malatyaspor.

Fenerbahce did manage to advance in the Turkish Cup with a 1-0 home win over Karacabey Belediyespor but failed to back that result up as they went down 3-1 at Gaziantep. Dimitrios Pelkas was the goalscorer for Fenerbahce.

Fenerbahce Injuries & Team News


Wingers Diego Perotti and Enner Valencia are injured which should see Ferdi Kadioglu make a start. Dimitrios Pelkas is suspended with Mame Thiam likely to replace him.

Centre-back Mauricio Lemos will also miss the match through injury. His most likely replacement is Serdar Aziz.

Mbwana Samatta and Tolga Cigerci have both been ruled out of this encounter, although neither are regular starters. 

Istanbul Basaksehir Form


Istanbul Basaksehir have no doubt been affected by the Champions League campaign as they find themselves in 13th place in the Turkish Super Lig after 12 matches. This is certainly not the season the defending champions were expecting.

Basaksehir have not managed victory in their last four Turkish Super Lig matches and only have one win in their last nine fixtures in all competitions. That win came in their last match against Turgutluspor in the Turkish Cup.

A rampant Istanbul Basaksehir won 7-0 at home with Daniel Aleksic, Demba Ba, Kerim Frei, Nacer Chadli scoring the first four goals. Fredrik Gulbrandsen came off the bench in the 74th minute and scored  a hat-trick in 11 minutes.

Prior to that big win Basaksehir had lost 5-1 to PSG in the UEFA Champions League and 2-1 at home to Gaziantep FK in their last Turkish Super Lig match. Enzo Crivelli scored Istanbul Basaksehir’s goal in that match.

Istanbul Basaksehir Injuries & Team News


Right-back Junior Caicara remains on the treatment table with no expected return date set for him.

Both centre-backs in Alexandru Epureanu and Martin Skrtel are injured which should see Mehmet Topal and Carlos Ponck start in central defence.
