    Fenerbahce to boost title hopes at Yeni Malatyaspor

    On Thursday evening, Fenerbahce take their title challenge to Malatya as the visitors from the capital face Yeni Malatyaspor in the Turkish Super League.

    Yeni Malatyaspor are enduring a difficult campaign in the Turkish top-flight and are currently only outside the relegation zone courtesy of superior goal difference to 18th place Ankaragucu.

    The home side heads into this clash on the back of an 11-game winless run, including losing 1-0 last time out against reigning champions Istanbul Basaksehir.

    The defeat saw the home team concede at least two goals for the third straight league outing in the Turkish Super Lig.

    Their recent league outings have at least offered a decent goal return, as there has been at least two goals scored in seven of their nine matches in the Turkish Lig.

    Poor recent home form has not helped Yeni Malatyaspor’s chances of beating the drop, as they have failed to win in six home league matches, having suffered four defeats in the process.

    Although Fenerbahce are the most successful team in Turkey when it comes to top-flight titles, the Yellow and Navy Blue have not won a league title since 2014.

    However, with just nine league games left this season, Emre Belozoglu’s team are second place in the table and two points behind league leaders Besiktas, although the leaders have a game in hand on their rivals.

    In truth, the visitors recent league form has been slightly underwhelming, as they head into this clash on the back of just two wins from their previous five Super Lig outings.

    Fenerbahce have a stellar recent away record in the Turkish top-flight, as they are unbeaten in eight league games on their travels, having recorded six wins in the process.

    Forebet predicts that Fenerbahce will boost their title hopes by recording a victory in a high-scoring encounter to aide their title hopes.
