Gaziantepspor vs Antalyaspor
Gaziantepspor may feel demoralized after their mid-week Turkish cup semi final exit however, they still find themselves in forth position which would guarantee them a Europa cup spot and their highest league finish in a decade. Antalyaspor meanwhile were looking likely relegation candidates going into the second half of the season however, a recent surge in form has elevated them into mid-table safety. They have no real motivation as they are now safe yet seem intent on approaching every game with the same intensity.
Antalyaspor defend well as a team and break fast on counter attacks, their attacking trio Necati, Tita and Mehmet Yilmaz have been linking up well and causing opposition defenses nightmares recently.
Gaziantep will be going for the win in this game, scoring goals hasn't been their problem, it has been defensively where the team has had serious issues. Antalyaspor will be able to create chances on the counter against their poorly organized defense. Popov and Sosa will be missing in midfield for Gaziantep which will only help Antalyas cause.
Expecting an open game with lots of chances at both ends.
IBB vs Ankaragucu
IBB have been celebrating reaching the Turkish Cup final after their mid-week win over Genclerbirligi, the clubs biggest achievement yet in their short history as a football club. They go into this game without inform striker Holosko and don't have a squad deep enough to be playing and pushing their key players each game. Ankaragücü have had a change in fortune since the appointment of manager Mesut Bakkal, they have only lost once in their previous 6 games under his lead. He will be looking to extend this impressive run and secure his position for next season, the club has deep pockets and the manager will be fully aware that he will have the opportunity to build a squad which can challenge the top 4 in their next league campaign.
IBB defend well as a team and hit oppositions on the counter attack. The problem with them is, if they have to do the attacking themselves they find it very difficult to create chances and break teams down. Ankaragücü will be missing forwards Vittek, Sestak and Sapara so its unlikely they will be playing an attacking style and bringing the game to IBB. Expecting a game in which the playing styles of the teams cause a midfield deadlock, this shouldn't be the most exciting of games and due to the lack of creativity on either side this could end in an under. However, with IBB still in celebratory mood, tired and resting some players due to playing mid-week Ankaragücü have a slight edge.
