The Gençlerbirliği comes to this game with a defeat against Kasimpasa, 3-1, totaling the fifth snub followed in the Turkish championship. We remind that the locals will not avoid the descent to the Turkish second division. In this match at home it is expected that the coach Ümit Özat will act in 4-3-2-1, favoring a middle or low block and the long balls towards the attack, mainly, for Skuletic: this player is the best marker of the local team , with 7 goals scored. However, it is important to underline that the offensive sector is one of the weaknesses of this team, as it scored on average only 1.06 goals per game. For this game the coach does not have Oguz, suspended, in addition to Yilmaz, Scekic, Jailton and Florentin Pogba, players recovering from injury.

This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since it has won 11 points in away matches and 28 at their stadium, with 19 goals scored and 29 conceded in away matches, against 24 goals scored and 18 conceded at home. For the championship, Bursaspor won 6 points out of 30 possible points, after 2 wins and 8 losses in the last 10 home matches.
