Uğurcan Çakır (Trabzonspor, Goalkeeper)
Uğurcan Çakır has played for 20 out of 21 games with 1.800 minutes so far. He has 1 penalty save and 6 clean sheets in these 20 games. He has an impressing 62 saves stats this season. He was the hero of the last game against Beşiktaş with 4 saves in dangerous situations. They are playing against Denizlispor at home. He’ll possibly have another clean sheet this week.
Henry Onyekuru (Galatasaray, Midfielder)
Onyekuru made an impressive start to his third career era with Galatasaray. After his very successful first year with Galatasaray, his second period with Galatasaray was very disappointing. However, after his recent signing with Galatasaray for the third time, he scored 2 goals in just 45 minutes against Gaziantep FK. We expect him to pursue his impressive debut against Başakşehir who have many missing players.
Key Stats (per game): Shots 2.0 / Key Passes: 1.0
Alternative Pick: Ryan Babel (Galatasaray, Midfielder) Last 5 games 2 goals-2 assists
Max Gradel (Sivasspor, Midfielder)
One of the most impressive performances of the season has been showed by Max Gradel so far this season. After Sivasspor’s star players’ transfer to the rival teams, Max Gradel started to play as the leader of the team. Skillful player also takes the ball in penalty-kicks and free-kicks. He made 4 goals and 5 assists in last 9 games. They are playing against Erzurumspor this week and we recommend him again as one of the flash players of the week.
Key Stats (per game): Crosses 1.3 / Shots: 2.2 / Key Passes: 1.7
Alternative Pick: Fernando Boldrin (Rizespor, Midfielder) Last 6 games 2 goals
Aaron Boupendza (Hatayspor, Forward)
Aaron Boupendza completed as top goalscorer for the first half of the Süper Lig with 13 goals. He impresses with his 12 goals in last 8 games and one goal per every 53 minutes stat. He is indispensable for fantasy football fans with his current form. They are playing against a strong opponent this week. Since Fenerbahçe will play a derby game against Galatasaray one week after Hatayspor game, Erol Bulut might consider some rotations. It means that Hatayspor might make the surprise of the week. So, we recommend Boupendza again this week.
Key Stats (per game): Shots: 2.4 / Key Passes: 0.5
Alternative Pick: Vincent Aboubakar (Beşiktaş, Forward) Last 6 games 4 goals 1 assist
Pedro Henrique (Kayserispor, Midfielder)
Kayserispor’s skillful midfielder Pedro Henrique didn’t make a good start for this season due to injuries. He has 4 goals and 1 assist in 16 games. Kayserispor increased to the place above the relegation line with their 4 wins in last 6 games. They need to pursue their current form against Alanyaspor if they want to stay above relegation line. The penalty-taker of Kayserispor is also the most skillful player of the team. He might be the surprise pick of the week.
Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.3 / Shots: 2.1 / Key Passes: 1.2
Alternative Pick: Uğur Demirok (Kayserispor, Defender) Last 7 games 5 goals
Recommended Teams for Player Picks
Last title winner Başakşehir is currently in a bad situation. They dismissed Okan Buruk last week and had a very heavy lost against Hatayspor by conceding 5 goals. They have also many injured players. Considering all these points, Galatasaray is very close to win the game. Goalkeeper Muslera, Donk, Babel and Onyekuru might be suitable picks for Galatasaray.
Trabzonspor has 5 wins and 1 draw in last 6 games. They scored 10 goals and conceded 4 goals in this 6 games. Considering their current form, Trabzonspor is expected to have an easy win against their opponent Denizlispor who are at the bottom of the table. Goalkeeper Uğurcan, defenders Vitor Hugo and Serkan Asan, midifielders Bakasetas and Nwakaeme, forward Ekuban might be suitable picks from Trabzonspor this week.
