Tip Reasoning

It’s been an experience that they’ll never forget, probably not for the right reasons, but Kardemir Karabükspor are on their way back down to the second division having fallen some way short of the level required in Turkey’s top division this season. Having already received a few heavy beatings, even on their own patch, the hosts look set to struggle once again on Monday.

Things were going very well for Fenerbahçe until they failed to come up with the goods against Akhisarspor last time out, though all is not lost, especially since that was a cup match. They continued to look a threat going forward on that occasion and this is an excellent opportunity for them to regain the winning thread and draw alongside their title rivals at the same time.

From a betting point of view, it is simply impossible to side with the hosts. They’ve failed to compete at this level and have really struggled to make any headway in recent weeks. What’s more, Fenerbahçe are one of the best attacking teams in this division, so they are backed to teach the downward hosts a lesson on Monday evening.

At the prices, both ‘Fenerbahçe -2 Handicap’ and ‘Fenerbahçe to Score Over 3.5 Goals’ stand out.

Even on their own patch, Kardemir have struggled massively to keep the better teams at bay. They were all over the place when losing 7-0 at home against Galatasaray, while they offered little resistance when conceding four against both Bursaspor and Osmanlispor in recent times. What’s more, they conceded five against mid-table side Goztepe in their penultimate match. Having failed to fend off such opposition, it really is easy to see the visitors, who’re the second highest scorers in the league, enjoying themselves offensively.

Not only have Karabükspor conceded an embarrassing 76 goals this season, but they’ve barely made any headway at the other end of the pitch. They have the worst defensive record, while they’re also the not so proud owners of the divisions’ worst scoring record, having notched a measly 20 goals.

It would be easy to talk about the attacking exploits of the visitors, though Fenerbahçe’s form against teams who’re clearly a lot better than Kardemir is hardly relevant. Even the other two teams in the relegation zone have got far more competitive than the rather sorry-looking hosts, who’ve accumulated a paltry 12 points from 32 matches this season.

Quite simply, the visitors, who have scored 11 goals in their last three on the road, ought to have more than enough quality to go to town on a home team who simply cannot compete at this level.

With the hosts having conceded a minimum of five goals against each of the other three top-four teams this season, Fenerbahçe are fancied to complete the set and walk all over their opponents.
