The Akhisar enters this unmotivated day, after a foreign snub, by 2-1, in the displacement to the arena of Trabzonspor. Like the opponent of this round, the Akhisar also usually uses a tactical disposition in 4-3-3, favoring a style of game faster and of constant transitions. The brain of the local team is the Brazilian Serginho, the player responsible for defining and leading the offensive attacks of his team. Apparently, the coach of the house should not be able to count on Mustafa Yumlu, Dany Nounkeu, Guray Vural, Hasan Ali Adiguzel and Sokol Cikalleshi, for being injured.

Kasimpasa enters this performance after a stranger draw, to zero, in the visit to the land of Goztepe. The visiting club usually acts in a traditional 4-3-3, favoring quick transitions and attacks through the lateral corridors. In this tactical drawing, the three most advanced men, responsible for throwing the panic in the opposing defense are Trezeguet, Koita and Karim Hafez. We believe that Kasimpasa will channel its attacks, preferably, on the right flank, taking advantage of the depth that the Popov side offers. The foreign technician should not be able to count on Tarkan Serbest, because he is suspended, due to the accumulation of yellow cards.
