Boffin had 2 penalty saves in his total 57 saves this season. Antalyaspor hasn’t lost for 8 games in Turkish Süper Lig. They will play against Yeni Malatyaspor on GW25 at home.

Guilherme Sitya / Nejc Skubic (Konyaspor, Defender)
Konyaspor made a coach change after Beşiktaş game. İlhan Palut will be the successor of former coach İsmail Kartal. We expect a positive affect on Konyaspor after this coach change in the club. Konyaspor’s first game with his new coach is against Denizlispor who are at the bottom of the table. Konyaspor is very close to win the game and to have the clean sheet. Considering all these factors, Konyaspor’s two effective defense backs Guilherme and Skubic are the most suitable picks in terms of clean sheet and also attacking contributions. (Guilherme has 4 assists, Skubic has 2 goals & 5 assists). We should also remind that Konyaspor conceded only 1 goal in last 3 games.
