Eskişehirspor vs Sivasspor
Sunday 22nd April 2012 @ 13:00 GMT
Prediction: Over 2.5 @ 2.00
Eskişehirspor won't be too disappointed with picking up an away points against IBB. EsEshave been playing well under Ersun Yanal, the young managers attacking philosophy took a while to adapt too but it's already started to click. Dede has been lethal down the wing, Kamara is playing well and 20 year old Alper Potuk has been pulling the strings in midfield all season. Also 20 year old Batuhan Karadeniz is finally showing glimpses of his ability, his goal against IBB showed brilliant shooting technique.
Sivasspor sprung the surprise of the week, it was no secret that they wanted revenge against Bursaspor following their humiliating 4-1 cup defeat. Few expected them to give such an impressive response, the Yigido's hammered the Green Crocodiles 4-0. S
Sivasspor are one of the most improved Anatolian teams of recent years and have had a better season than most expected. Grosicki has been in wonderful form down the wing and wrecked havoc against Bursaspor, scoring an beautiful goal and getting an assist. Kilic has been impressive in midfield and Eneramo has caused problems upfront with his strength and power.
Eskişehirspor are joint on 26 points with IBB, they know that a home win will be critical if they are to win the playoff group and Yanal will have no worries going for an even more attacking than usual approach to this game. Sivasspor are most effective on the counter attack and when going forwards. If Sivasspor decide to sit back it won't do them any favors as they don't have a defense capable of holding out the likes of EsEs all game. With Sivasspor pushing forward, Grosicki will have more space on the wing and considering the great relationship he has with Eneramo this could lead to an end to end game.
