Turkish Süper Lig — Gameweek 3
The top-tier of football in Turkey is gaining momentum, and with the market still open, we offer you the best help you can get fantasy-wise.
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.
Edin Visca (Istanbul Basaksehir, Midfielder)
During the previous 3 seasons in Turkish Super League, Bosnian right winger Edin Visca made a significant contribution of 35 goals and 43 assists in 90 league games. He led his team to be runner-up in 2018–2019 season and win the title in 2019–2020 season with his shining performance. We are expecting “the marvel super hero” of Istanbul Basaksehir to be on the stage as a leading actor this week against Fatih Karagumruk. It was very rare for him neither to score nor to assist in two consecutive games which fantasy football fans were surprisingly witnessed for previous two weeks. He is the key member of his team’s game set-up and takes the ball almost in all the set-pieces. The defending champion needs his captain very much in order to get out of the crisis that they are currently having. Bosnian international would do whatever it takes this week.
Max Gradel (Sivasspor, Midfielder)
Sivasspor’s new signing Max Gradel scored 3 goals and made 3 assists in France’s Toulouse during the last season. After the first two gameweeks in Turkish Super League, he showed signs that he will make a mark in the league this season. He is the leader in all four statistics with average of 4 shots, 2,5 crosses, 1,5 key passes and 2 successful dribbles after Alanyaspor and Erzurumspor games within his teammates. After playing 180 minutes in first two games, he showed that he is one of the initial players to be picked in Sivasspor. He scored the winning goal in Erzurumspor game and he also had two shots on woodwork. Gradel will be the key player against Ankaragucu and a possible candidate for captaincy to most of the fantasy football players. We believe that the Ivorian player will pursue his significant performance during the whole season.
Anthony Nwakaeme (Trabzonspor, Midfielder)
Since his joining to Trabzonspor in 2018–2019 season, Anthony Nwakaeme made a contribution of 10 goals & 10 assists in his first season and 11 goals & 6 assists in the previous season. He became a fantasy football hero with his perfomance during these two seasons. Despite his silence in terms of goals and assists in the last two games, he seemed impassioned and in good form with his averages of 3,5 shots, 1 key pass and 2,5 successful dribbles per game. After the worst season starting of his team in last 9 years, we expect him to take the lead on the field and to play an important role in order to get the first win of the season.
Halil Akbunar (Goztepe, Midfielder)
Halil Akbunar, who has been playing for Goztepe for 10 years coming from the club’s youth academy, made a significant season start. Goztepe fans’ favourite player was remarked with his 2 goals & 1 assist performance in the pre-season friendly games. He pursued his good form with 2 goals in the first 2 league games. We are considering him as the closest player to produce a goal or an assist against Gaziantep FK, whose defence line signals SOS with 5 conceded goals in first two league games. Halil Akbunar can possibly have opportunities to score or assist taking the weaknesses of Gaziantep FK defence line. He should be considered in the squads by fantasy football players.
Arvydas Novikovas (Erzurumspor, Midfielder)
Dynamic winger of Erzurumspor showed a very good performance in the first two league games and showed signs of being a favourite player for fantasy football squads. Although he scored one goal in two games, his another goal and an assist to a goal were disallowed by VAR in previous two games. He is an important member of the team with average of 3,5 shots, 0,5 cross and 0,5 successful dribble. He is considered to be the key member of attacking actions against Kayserispor game.
Efecan Karaca (Alanyaspor, Midfielder)
Although the main players to be picked from Alanyaspor in fantasy football squads are considered as Bakasetas, Davidson and Bareiro, Efecan Karaca could also be a possible mysterious and surprise pick. We should emphasize that amongst his one assist, he also made 2 key passes in previous two league games. Considering his satisfying statistics of 1,5 shots and 2,5 dribbles averages per game, he might be a bonus player against Rizespor.
Recommended Teams for Player Picks
The previous year’s champions are expected to win against Fatih Karagumruk and collect their first points of the season as the experienced side of the game.
Settling period of the new transfers is almost finished in Trabzonspor. They started to play and get used to the dynamics of Turkish Super League. Trabzonspor is expected to win against the following Yeni Malatyaspor game.
Sivasspor is another team whose new transfers are trying to get settled. It doesn’t seem easy for Ankaragucu to get point / points against Sivasspor. Sivasspor is closer to win the game against Ankaragucu as they have better players and more experienced manager.
