Turkish Süper Lig — Gameweek 6
Transfers are limited, so you need to use them wisely. Here are some of the best targets of the week.
Davidson (Alanyaspor, Midfielder)
29 years old left winger made a bright start with 5 goals and 1 assist in 5 games since he joined Alanyaspor to play in Turkish Süper Lig. The Brazilian, who made an average of 2,8 shots and 1 key pass per game, also had one shot on woodwork. In addition to his excellent performance which significantly carried his team at the top of the table, he also made his mark with the first hat-trick of the season against Hatayspor. We think that he’ll be the top pick of fantasy football players who trusts league leader Alanyaspor. Davidson should be considered together with Bareiro, Bakasetas and Babacar against Fatih Karagümrük who couldn’t win in last two games.
Edin Visca (Başakşehir, Midfielder)
Finally in the 5th game of the season, Edin Visca scored his first goal of the season. We don’t need to mentioned his quality and how he contributed to his team for years. He is one of the best players of Turkish Süper Lig and also most favourite footballer of fantasy football fans. Since this week’s opponent Antalyaspor have 6 missing players due to bans and injuries, Visca might be an important pick for fantasy football fans. Don’t forget that he is the primary option in penalties, corners and free-kicks.
Benjamin Tetteh (Malatyaspor, Forward)
Benjamin Tetteh is the most significant player of Yeni Malatyaspor with an average of 3 shots per game. This week’s opponent Gençlerbirliği showed a below-par performance against Denizlispor in the previous game and made the supporters disappointed. Yeni Malatyaspor is the closer side to win the game on paper and since the regular penalty taker of the team Adem Büyük is currently injured, Tetteh seems as the primary option for taking the penalties. Ganaian player might increase the number of his goals by scoring in this game and make his mark this week.
Vincent Aboubakar (Beşiktaş, Forward)
Since the start of the season, Beşiktaş team experienced too many problems. They were eliminated from European cups at the early stages without finding sufficient opportunity to train with the new transfers. After that the coach Sergen Yalçın was diagnosed as Covid-19 positive and couldn’t manage his team for a while. Taking also the bad performance that Beşiktaş showed since the start of the season, international call-ups break and an additional non-fixture week break seem like an opportunity for them to fix the problems within the team. During the break, Beşiktaş had a friendly game with Fatih Karagümrük. Vincent Aboubakar scored a goal and made 2 assists in the game. He also took the penalty in the game so he is the primary option for taking penalties this week since Mensah and Ljajic don’t seem to be in the starting elevens. We expect a good performance from him against Denizlispor.
Aytaç Kara (Kasımpaşa, Midfielder)
Turkish midfielder was paid attention with his 1 goal and 2 assists of performance in 5 games. However, his position as defensive midfielder puts him behind his team-mates such as Alan and Koita for picking in the squads. This week’s opponent Göztepe had very high-scoring games during the first 5 weeks (17 goals in 5 games) and have 3 possible missing players in the starting eleven. Under this circumstances, set-piece taker Aytaç Kara can be the player who would make a difference by also taking his current form.
Recommended Teams for Player Picks
It’s time to win for the black & white coloured team of Istanbul. They’ll have such an opponent to turnaround things this week. Denizlispor is one of the weakest team in terms of squad in Turkish Süper Lig. By the leadership of Vincent Aboubakar, Beşiktaş will take what they want from the pitch.
Alanyaspor is pursuing their good from since the start of the season. They haven’t lost a game yet and won a very important away game against Galatasaray last week. In his first coaching experience, Çağdaş Atan is performing very well together with the successful players Efecan Karaca, Babacar, Davidson, Bakasetas and Bareiro. They are expected to reach 3 points easily against Fatih Karagümrük this week.
