The middle of the week, as it often happens, turns out to be “cup”. Turkey does not stand aside, where the 1/8 finals will also take place. On Thursday, they will try to succeed in the duel between Gaziantep and Konyaspor. The site’s journalists wrote an announcement and forecast for this football match on January 19, 2023.

Gaziantep is trying to improve after last season

“GFK” is a fairly young project that has nothing to boast about. But advancing to the Superleague in 2019, they managed to show quite decent results there at the level of a strong average peasant, finishing 8-9th – but in the 2021/2022 season there was a return to 15th place. Of course I want to restore the items. So far, not everything is going well, but there have been few defeats recently. The abundance of draws makes it difficult to advance in the table – they shared points not only with Besiktas and Basaksehir, but also with outsiders Istanbulspor. Against this background, the club looked dignified at home with Fenerbahce, even being in the minority. But in the end he lost because of Valencia’s late goal.

Konyaspor failed to gain a foothold in the positions achieved in the 2021/2022 season

The “Eagles of Anatolia” have recently started to “shoot” periodically. Winning the 2017 Cup (and Super Bowl) stands out. Yes, and last season brought a return, after rather average years, to the 3rd place – this is a repeat of the maximum score from the 2015/2016 tie. Now, Ilkhan Palut’s players have a minimum of defeats on their account, but due to the excessive number of draws, also in the last rounds, they are unable to defend their “bronze” positions. In the last round, there was a defeat at all – with Besiktas. What’s more, they managed to lead for over an hour, but after losing in the 95th minute they lost to the Eagles 1:2.
