Turkish Fantasy — Tips for Gameweek 24
With lots of new players in the league and some pieces being shuffled around, it’s time for a deep look into your squad. Check out these options.
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.
Jakub Szumski (Erzurumspor, Goalkeeper)
After he joined Erzurumspor during January transfer window, Szumski played in 4 games and had 2 clean sheets. In this 4 games, Erzurumspor didn’t lose to any of their opponents. This week’s opponent Kayserispor is the least goal scoring team of Turkish Süper Lig so far this season. (16 goals in 22 games) And also Kayserispor’s most important player Pedro Henrique will miss the game due to his injury. Considering all above factors, we expect another clean sheet from Jakub Szumski against Kayserispor this week.
Key Stats (per game): Saves: 2.25 / Average Realfevr Point: 4.5
Alternative Pick: Ruud Boffin (Antalyaspor, Goalkeeper) 20 games — 9 clean sheets — 55 saves
François Moubandje (Alanyaspor, Defender)
After his career journey with Dinamo Zagreb, Servette and Toulouse, François Moubandje joined Alanyaspor at the beginning of this season. He has scored 3 goals in 18 games, which is equal to his previous 7 years’ stats. Swiss player has also 6 clean sheets this season. Alanyaspor is the most successful team at home this season (11 games 26 points) and their opponent Rizespor has only 1 win in 11 away games. Moubandje will be a clean sheet candidate and also a possible scoring contributor this week.
Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.4 / Shots: 0.8 / Key Passes: 0.6
Alternative Pick: Domagoj Vida (Beşiktaş, Defender) 17 games — 3 goals — 7 clean sheets
Anastasios Bakasetas (Trabzonspor, Midfielder)
Bakasetas has 8 goals and 2 assists in 20 games so far this season. After his transfer to Trabzonspor, he scored his first goal against Denizlispor in his second game. Trabzonspor has 6 wins and 1 draw in last 7 Süper Lig games. They also win the Super Cup title last week against Istanbul Başakşehir, so we can say that they are on fire! Bakasetas will be a suitable pick this week against Yeni Malatyaspor also considering that he’ll possibly take the penalty-kicks.
Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.5 / Shots: 1.5 / Key Passes: 1.0
Alternative Pick: Fabio Borini (Fatih Karagümrük, Midfielder) 3 goals in last 4 games
Adam Bareiro (Alanyaspor, Forward)
Adam Bareiro has an opportunity to start for Kayserispor game after Khouma Babacar’s ban this week. Alanyaspor is his first team outside of American continent. He made an impressive start to the season with 3 goals in 4 games. However, in the following game weeks he lost his starting eleven place to his team-mate Khouma Babacar. We expect a significant contribution to his team against Rizespor this week.
Key Stats (per game): Shots: 1.8 / Key Passes: 0.9
Alternative Pick: Cyle Larin (Beşiktaş, Forward) 21 games 12 goals — 3 assists
Bünyamin Balcı / Eren Albayrak (Antalyaspor, Defender)
After their frustrating loss to Hatayspor by 6–0 7 weeks ago, Antalyaspor haven’t lost a game in last 6 games. They are climbing to higher places in the ranking every week. In last 6 games, defenders Eren Albayrak & Bünyamin Balcı had 4 clean sheets and made 1 goal & 1 assist each. They are playing against Denizlispor who are at the bottom of the table. This two players are potential clean sheet candidates and also we expect contribution for scoring from one / both of them. You may pick one of them as a surprise choice.
Eren Albayrak Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.5 / Shots: 1.8 / Key Passes: 0.9
Bünyamin Balcı Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.2 / Shots: 0.5 / Key Passes: 0.6
Alternative Pick: Jure Balkovec (Fatih Karagümrük, Defender) 19 games 2 goals — 1 assist — 4 clean sheets
Recommended Teams for Player Picks
Alanyaspor is the best performing team at home. Their opponent is at the second place in worst performing away team ranking. Marafona, Caulker, Moubandje, Davidson and Bareiro might be suitable picks from Alanyaspor. Salih Uçan and Umut Güneş also could be considered as surprise picks. Especially Salih Uçan is the first option for the set-pieces after Bakasetas’ leave.
Beşiktaş will host Konyaspor who were not able to score in last two games. Beşiktaş lost 5 points in last two games and they want to make their supporters to forget these losses with their performance against Konyaspor. Ersin Destanoğlu, Vida, Ghezzal, Aboubakar and Larin might be suitable picks. You may try also Adem Ljajic as a surprise pick.
