In the “Türkiye Kupasi” this week are the cup games in the round of the last 32 on. In the last round of the cup, there were hardly any big surprises, which is why all the favorites in the cup are represented. On Tuesday evening, Fenerbahce and Istanbulspor will face two teams from the metropolis.
Fenerbahce vs Istanbulspor Soccer Betting Prediction
Istanbulspor is sometimes one of the most traditional clubs in Turkey and was a founding member of the Süper Lig. Since the 2004/05 season, Istanbulspor is no longer represented in the highest Turkish league and recently lagged behind the expectations. For two seasons participate the black and yellow in the second division.
The “Bulls” from Istanbul – comparisons with “RB” would be inappropriate in this context – missed in the last season promotion to the Süper Lig, but at least stayed away from the relegation battle. Also in the current season, the promotion ambitions could not really be substantiated. As a table winners brought Istanbul Spor so far only three wins.
How the second division will go against Fenerbahce, therefore, remains uncertain. A decisive factor could be the spirit setting in the Ülker Stadium. The “canaries” have yet to play a last cup match without the twelfth man in the back. In Fenerbahce against Istanbulspor, the home side, according to odds of bookmakers but still clear favorite against the second division.
If you look at the cup history of the “canaries”, the low prices do not really have much value. In the past, the 19-time Süper Lig champions often dropped out against a supposed underdog from the lower leagues, so we would not rule out a surprise surprise at Fenerbahce against Istanbulspor.
Fenerbahce – Statistics & Current Form
The next setback for the “canaries” from Istanbul! With the 2: 2 draw in Izmir Fenerbahce again springs and thus also important points in the championship race lie. On Tuesday evening Fenerbahce are now in the Turkish Cup, where the home game against second division Istanbulspor is pending.
The cup match on Tuesday evening will take place in front of a ghost backdrop. Since the incidents in the Cup derby between Fenerbahce and Besiktas in the 2017/18 season, the “canaries” have taken a home ban. With the home game against Istanbulspor the curfew ends for the fans of the Blue and Yellow.
The cup match on Tuesday night will see some changes in the Fenerbahce squad. Already on Friday is the next task in the Süper Lig, which is why coach Ersun Yanal wants to avoid the double burden of the “Türkiye Kupasi” as possible. A mix of second guard and youngsters is quite likely against Istanbulspor.
Last Fenerbahce had some problems in the offensive game and also presented on the defensive not stable. The strong rotation in the cup holds risks, but also a great opportunity for reservists to focus. For example, reservists like Zajc or Kadioglu can cause quite a stir in the cup.
It remains to be seen how Ersun Yanal will make his team run up against Istanbulspor. Since the game is played in front of a ghost cast, the home advantage in this match should not be overstated. At Fenerbahce against Istanbulspor we find a prediction on home win at current odds not exactly recommended.

Istanbulspor – Statistics & Current Form
Istanbulspor is one of the most traditional clubs in Turkey. The second division club from the metropolis of Istanbul counted for many years as a regular in the Süper Lig and was able to compete with the city rivals Besiktas, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce. Unlike the heavyweights from Istanbul, the “bulls” lacked financial support.
Therefore, the interim insolvency of the club was not surprising. Now Istanbulspor is fighting back and wants to return to the Süper Lig in the coming years. The goal was missed last season and things are not going well this season either. At least over the playoffs it could work, should the “bulls” increase in the second half.
In the second Turkish league Istanbulspor meanwhile occupied the twelfth place in the table. In 13 games, the black and yellow won so far only three times. Before the important cup match against Fenerbahce but was fueled with the 4-0 home win over Karagümrük neat self-confidence. The “Bulls” are currently the second strongest offense of the second division with 21 goals.
For the first time this season Istanbulspor kept the white vest last weekend. Previously, there were in twelve league games whopping 19 goals. If the black and yellow are also in the “mini” derby against Fenerbahce in that defensive state, goals will probably be guaranteed.
Istanbulspor beat Pazarspor (3: 2) and Tepecikspor (5: 2) in scoring matches in the previous rounds. Istanbul Sporin coach Firat Gül will send his best squad to the field in the away game against Fenerbahce. It is quite possible that Allahyar Sayyadmanesh, a loaner from Fenerbahce, will also play this role. Injury-related failures are currently not to complain about the second division.
