Turkish Süper Lig — Gameweek 5
Need some advice on the best picks of the gameweek? RealFevr has got you covered.
Below you’ll find the crème de la crème of this week’s fantasy studs, provided to you by the masterminds behind Fantezi Futbol Türkiye.
Bogdan Stancu (Gençlerbirliği, Forward)
Bogdan Stancu took an average of 85 minutes in 3 games. However, he couldn’t contribute his team at scoring except of the one goal he scored in Beşiktaş game although he was one of the most efficient players with 14 goals, 5 assists and 3 penalty earnings within both Super Lig and his team last season. The reasons behind his poor start could be either his pre-season physical problems or lack of talented teammates to support him. The star player who also takes the penalties for Gençlerbirliği is expected to make his mark vs. Denizlispor who have below average performances with only just 1 goal in 4 games since the start of the season.
Fernando Boldrin (Rizespor, Midfielder)
In previous season, Fernando Boldrin was one of the shining stars in Çaykur Rizespor together with Dario Melnjak. He took 2.620 minutes in 30 games. In these games, he scored 6 goals, made 4 assists and earned a penalty. Although his significant performance last year, the Brazilian couldn’t make a good start this season. His team Rizespor is one of the 5 teams which have not scored so far in previous 4 gameweeks. During these 4 games, Rizespor just scored 2 goals and Boldrin only made one assist. Boldrin is expected to produce goals or assists against Ankaragücü especially with the co-operation of Remy & Skoda and also considering that he takes all the set-pieces except of the penalties.
Erik Sabo (Fatih Karagümrük, Midfielder)
As one of the potential fantasy football heroes that we expect to make his mark in Süper Lig this season, Erik Sabo made a brilliant start with 3 goals and 2 penalty earnings in 4 games. In addition, we should mention that the Slovakian player missed a penalty. The successful player made a good performance with 9 goals and 4 assists in Turkish 1. Lig last season. We expect the player will take responsibility and be the headliner in Istanbul derby against Kasımpaşa. And also with the penalty given & scored percentage in Turkish Süper Lig this season, he also comes forward as one of the important penalty takers
Mbwana Samatta (Fenerbahçe, Forward)
With the closing of the transfer window, Fenerbahçe’s unstoppable transfer moves also came to an end. There is an interesting fact that 16 new transfers of Fenerbahçe scored 127 goals and made 65 assists in previous season. These figures are really significant and it gives the impression that some people in Fenerbahçe’s transfer committee are potential fantasy football players. Selecting players from Fenerbahçe always includes the risk of rotations when taking the squad depth into consideration. But taking his performance so far into consideration (2 goals in 110 minutes), Mbwana Samatta is definitely one of the players to be expected in the starting line-up. Tanzanian player had either a goal or an assist in half of 250 games that he has played so far in his careeer. We think that fantasy football players who will pick Samatta this week against Göztepe won’t regret with their choice.
Ricardo Gomes (Erzurumspor, Forward)
Ricardo Gomes, who hasn’t taken any duration in an offical game so far following his joint to the club at the beginning of October, showed an impressive performance during the friendly game against Trabzonspor in national call-ups break. The player made the key pass before the assist in first goal and then scored the second goal in the game. In addition, his one assist was also cancelled because of a disallowed goal for an offside. We understood from the local newspapers that after his impressive performance in this friendly game, he is definitely expected to be in the starting eleven this week against Hatayspor. Cape Verdean has a performance of 57 goals and 17 assists in 107 games that he played for last 3 years. We can pick the high potential player easily against Hatayspor who conceded 6 goals last week and also will have 3 missing players due to covid-19 at the weekend.
Recommended Teams for Player Picks
Although their below-par performance at the start of the season, Rizespor is close to win against Ankaragücü. Melnjak, Remy, Skoda, Samudio and Boldrin are expected to be the headliners of the game. Rizespor’s home performance will be the key criteria for the result. (7 out of 10 games without losing in the year 2020.)
Gençlerbirliği is the team close to win against Denizlispor, who are the potential candidate for relegation this year. They haven’t won any game so far in 4 gamesweeks this season and they haven’t won any away games in the year 2020. There are many options to pick from Gençlerbirliği such as penalty taker Bogdan Stancu, set-piece master Dominic Furman, Daniel Candeias and Mattias Johansson.
