Hatayspor vs Basaksehir Soccer Betting Prediction
Does Basaksehir stumble with the newly promoted Hatay?
Since the surprising Süper Lig championship in Bursaspor almost ten years ago, the title in the Turkish House of Lords has always been played between the three big heavyweights from Istanbul. Another team joined them for almost four years: Basaksehir Istanbul. Last season even won the title in the Süper Lig.
One of the success factors was Okan Buruk. The 46-year-old whipped the team into shape and immortalized himself – if that may be said in connection with the retort club from Istanbul – with Basaksehir. This season it should be built on. On the first day of the 2020/21 season, the away game is on the promoted team.
Hatayspor will debut in the Turkish House of Lords on Monday evening. The Bordeaux red rose for the first time in the club’s history in the Süper Lig. As expected, the first Turkish league was properly upgraded for the special season. With Ömer Erdogan, born in Kassel, a new coach took over the team.
The newcomer remains unpredictable after the change in management. Even if the favorite role of last year’s champions is understandable, we at Hatayspor against Basaksehir would rather advise against a tip on the three-way market.

Hatayspor – Statistics & current form
Hatayspor goes the classic way of advancement. The Bordeaux Reds invested heavily in the transfer market in the summer and signed a total of nine players – eight of them legionnaires, mind you. The latest transfer from Hatayspor was Adama Traore from AS Monaco. How coach Ömer Erdogan will deal with the big upheaval remains uncertain for the time being.
Cracker at the start of the season
In the summer preparation, large preparation games were largely avoided. The only test game worth mentioning was played by the Bordeaux Reds almost a week ago against the Turkish record champions Galatasaray. Even if test games should not be overrated, the promoted team showed a very strong performance and rewarded himself with a draw.
Since many newcomers arrived late, it remains to be seen whether Ömer Erdogan can integrate those players into the starting line-up. The native of Kassel is only taking over the head coach function for the second time in his young coaching career.
Will the home record 2019/20 continue?
The home strength of the Bordeaux Reds was a decisive factor in the second division championship last season. In the 17 home games, Hatayspor had a record of 13-3-1. Only eight goals were conceded. If you consider that Ömer Erdogan’s team was also able to keep the Galatasaray offensive in check recently, it would by no means be absurd if this defensive performance was also continued in the Süper Lig.
Home games against a ghostly backdrop are a major disadvantage for the newly promoted team. After all, the fanatical supporters of the Bordeaux red waited for years for promotion to the Turkish upper house. At Hatayspor vs. Basaksehir finds it difficult to predict the season opener. It is quite possible, however, that the newcomer will stand up to last year’s champions from Istanbul.
Probable formation of Hatayspor:
➫ Akın – Burak Can, Mesut, Yusuf, Santos – Sackey, Aabid, Gökhan, Ribeiro, Selim – Mirkan

Basaksehir – Statistics & Current Form
Basaksehir fought a duel for the title at the end of the 2019/20 season. As in previous years, there were setbacks in the second half of the season, but this time benefited from the loss of points in the title competition. The first championship in the club’s history was even celebrated early. A clear statement to the SL competition? Hardly likely.
Outsiders in the 2020/21 season?
Because although the Orange-Blue played a strong and consistent season, Basaksehir is seen as a supposed outsider in the title race in the 2020/21 season. The best bookmakers offer odds of 4.33 for a 2020/21 Süper Lig championship from last year’s champions. Among other things, that assessment will certainly be justified by the double burden of the Champions League.
The adventure for Okan Buruk’s team starts there in the group stage. Until then, however, the focus will be on the national competition. Last season, Basaksehir had the strongest defense in the Turkish House of Lords with just 34 conceded goals in 34 games. Since nothing has changed in the backline since then, a defensive bulwark at Basaksehir can still be expected.
In the current transfer window, Basaksehir’s activities remained rather manageable. The Orange-Blue have signed Özcan (HSV), Kaldirim (Fenerbahce), Okechukwu (Pyramids), da Silva (Lyon), and Chadli (Monaco) so far. According to media reports, more newcomers are to follow. How Okan Buruk will line up his team on the first matchday of the Süper Lig is not foreseeable.
Probable formation of Basaksehir:
➫ Günok – Kaldirim, Skrtel, Epureanu, Rafael – Tekdemir, Topal – Visca, Kahveci, Aleksic – Crivelli

Year after year, Basaksehir missed the big title coup in the Süper Lig. The streak of bad luck came to an end last season and Basaksehir was crowned champion in the Süper Lig for the first time in the club’s history.

For Hatayspor it will be the first Süper Lig season in the club’s history. Last season the Bordeaux Reds impressively fixed the championship in the TFF 1. Lig.
