Sports Mole

On Tuesday, fourth-placed Istanbul Basaksehir will look to claim a fourth consecutive Super Lig victory when they face a Konyaspor team that currently reside in second place.

The visitors enjoy a six-point gap over their hosts, but they will be hoping to return to winning ways after failing to win any of their last three matches in all competitions.

Match preview

Istanbul Basaksehir can close the gap to Konyaspor to just three points with a win on Tuesday, and they will be confident of doing just that after winning their last three matches.

After seeing off Fenerbahce and Gaziantep, Tuesday's hosts claimed an away victory when they beat Rizespor 2-0 on Friday.

In only his second appearance as an Istanbul Basaksehir player, Trezeguet scored his first goal for his new club to give the visitors a half time lead, and the Aston Villa loanee struck again in the 53rd minute to wrap up the three points.

Not only did they pick up the victory, but Emre Belozoglu's side held firm to clinch a third consecutive clean sheet.

Despite facing tough opposition on Tuesday, the hosts will be confident of claiming another victory after winning eight of their last 10 home league games.

Meanwhile, Konyaspor enter the midweek contest off the back of an entertaining 4-4 home draw against Kasimpasa.

Goals from Amilton and Amar Rahmanovic gave Konyaspor a half-time lead after Mortadha Ben Ouanes had given the visitors the early advantage before Haris Hajradinovic struck just a minute into the second half to level the encounter.

The contest continued to enthral with Soner Dikmen restoring the home side's lead before Umut Bozok dispatched his spot kick, and Konyaspor looked to be heading to a defeat when Awer Mabil struck in the first minute of stoppage time.

However, Sokol Cikalleshi's dramatic equaliser in the 10th minute of additional time ensured that the spoils were shared, and although a title challenge seems out of reach, the point helps Konyaspor in their quest to hold onto second spot.

Like their hosts, Ilhan Palut's side will also be confident of collecting three points on Tuesday having won three of their previous four away league matches.

Team News

The hosts are expected to be without Mahmut Tekdemir, who has missed the last three games through injury.

Deniz Turuc will also miss the contest, with the midfielder suspended due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

Meanwhile, Serdar Gurler was forced off early into the first half against Rizespor, and he is expected to be replaced in the starting lineup by Omer Ali Sahiner.

As for the visitors, they will be unable to call upon the services of Abdulkerim Bardakci, who will serve a one-match suspension after picking up his eighth booking of the season on Friday.

Bardakci's suspension will result in a change in the backline, with Marin Anicic a potential candidate to partner Adil Demirbag in the centre of defence.

Having scored in his last two appearances as a second-half substitute, Cikalleshi may have earned himself a place in the starting lineup.

Istanbul Basaksehir possible starting lineup:
Babacan; Caicara, Duarte, Ndayishimiye, Kaldirim; Pizzi, Cigerci, Ozcan; Sahiner, Trezeguet, Okaka

Konyaspor possible starting lineup:
Sehic; Skubic, Demirbag, Anicic; Guilherme; Hadziahmetovic, Dikmen, Rahmanovic; Amilton, Bytyqi, Cikalleshi

We say: Istanbul Basaksehir 2-2 Konyaspor

Istanbul Basaksehir's last two home meetings with Konyaspor have ended level, and with both sides battling in the higher echelons of the Super Lig table, we think that Tuesday's contest with end all square.
