17:15 Adana Demirspor – Caykur Rizespor

  • The hosts lost 1-4 against Besiktas J.K. in their last match in Group F (Adana Demirspor – Besiktas J.K. 1-4 on 21.01.2015), but still have chances for further progress in this tournament and their head coach already announced that he won’t rest any of his important players for this match and his team will play for three points.

  • Adana Demirspor is in the second tier of the Turkish football pyramid (TFF First League), but with good record at “Adana 5 Ocak Stadium” since the beginning of the new season (8-3-2 21-11) and with enough potential to compete successfully against most of the teams in the Turkish Super League.

  • Caykur Rizespor, on the other hand, is atop of the standings in Group F, still without a single mistake after four rounds (4-0-0 6-1).

  • However, there are two things that should be taken into consideration here.

  • First of all – the visitors have big problems in the Turkish Super League and Hikmet Karaman will most probably make some changes in the starting lineup, in order to preserve some of his players for the upcoming important match against Gaziantepspor on Sunday.

  • Second – Caykur Rizespor is still without important players like Godfrey Oboabona (defender), Ousmane Viera (defender), Ali Adnan Kadhim (defender) and Leonard Kweuke (striker), which strongly reduces the options for Hikmet Karaman.

  • Under these circumstances, I think that Adana Demirspor has good chances to win this match.
