Fenerbahce vs Kayserispor Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Struggling Fenerbahce host a resurgent Kayserispor at Ulker Stadium in the Turkish Super Lig. Fenerbahce have failed to win their last seven Super Lig matches and I don’t think they deserve to be short priced favourites in an empty stadium.

Fenerbahce Form


Fenerbahce are in turmoil, having failed to win in their last seven Super Lig matches to fall out of contention in Turkey. Manager Ersun Yanal was sacked after a 2-1 defeat at Trabzonspor with Zeki Murat Göle taking over as caretaker manager.

Göle’s first match in charge was a 2-2 home draw against Denizlispor with Ozan Tufan scoring early and Tolgay Arslan sent off before half time. They battled back from 2-1 down to score an added time equaliser through Serdar Aziz.

Fenerbahce’s last match was a 1-0 defeat at Konyaspor despite the hosts having two men sent off in the second half. It was Göle's last game in charge as he doesn't have the necessary licences to continue.

The club have not hired a new coach and are playing behind closed doors which negates the impact and support of their fans.

Kayserispor Form


Kayserispor have improved since Robert Prosinecki took over as manager in late December. His team suffered two heavy road defeats before going undefeated in five of their last six Super Lig matches to climb to three points from safety.

Kayserispor beat Goztepe 1-0 at home with Muris Mesanovic scoring the winner before a heavy 5-1 defeat at Kasimpasa. Prosinecki’s side had 60% possession but the hosts were clinical on the day.

The Anatolian Star beat Yeni Malatyaspor 2-1 at home in their previous match. Bernard Mensah assisted Muris Mesanovic and Pedro Henrique before seeing his penalty saved but Kayserispor held on for a vital win.

Fenerbahce vs Kayserispor Head to Head


Fenerbahce have a 23-10 advantage over Kayserispor with eight draws. These clubs met in the Turkish Cup Last 16 in January, a 0-0 draw in the 1st leg and Fenerbahce winning the 2nd leg 2-0 at the Ulker Stadium with Ferdi Kadioglu and Mevlüt Erdinc on target.

Fenerbahce vs Kayserispor Betting Odds


Fenerbahce are short priced 1.30 favourites with a draw listed at 5.00. Kayserispor can be backed at 9.00 at bet365.

Fenerbahce have failed to win in their last seven Super Lig matches which casts doubt on their form. Kayserispor are priced at 1.90 in the +2 handicap market which is on my betslip.

Fenerbahce have seen BTTS in six of their last seven Super Lig matches and Kayserispor have seen BTTS in nine of their last 11 matches in the Super Lig. BTTS can be backed at 1.72.

Fenerbahce vs Kayserispor Match Up


Fenerbahce will miss influential playmaker Max Kruse but still have top scorer Vedat Muriqi up front. The Kosovo striker has scored 13 goals in the Super Lig this season but needs service to get chances. 

Kayserispor will look to Ghana playmaker Bernard Mensah for inspiration. Mensah is on fire with three goals and four assists in his last seven matches and definitely a player to watch.
