Even top clubs have a season in which the desired services can not be delivered and accordingly the playing time is poorly cut. But what Fenerbahce is delivering in this Süper Lig season is anything but a “mixed season”. It’s the worst season in club history, and the current squad does not really have much hope for improvement. A transfer could be the bright spot in the dark tunnel: Victor Moses comes (borrowed) from Chelsea FC and should help the “canaries” to success. Lastly, the performance on offense was not very good. Moses could wave home in the starting XI against Yeni Malatyaspor. If Fenerbahce can not compete again, the “canaries” will again find themselves in a relegation rank. At Fenerbahce against Malatyaspor, even the odds of a home win show that the guests are quite likely to take away scores from Istanbul.
Today’s Football Prediction Fenerbahce vs. Malatyaspor
Yeni Malatyaspor plays a strong season as third in the table. If consistently strong performances are called, the Anatolian club has quite ambitions to secure a starting place for the European competition. Fenerbahce, meanwhile, is busy with the catastrophic season. Amazing that the “Canaries” despite the miserable performance in the national competition still made it into the knockout phase of the Europa League. If Fenerbahce does not get moving slowly, the relegation battle for the traditional club could actually begin. At Fenerbahce versus Yeni Malatyaspor, we do not prefer a home win victory. Fenerbahce’s performance has not been promising lately. On Monday evening, the match between Fenerbahce and Yeni Malatyaspor at 18:00 clock in Ülker Stadium!
Fenerbahce – Statistics & Current Form
Fenerbahce retired from the Turkish Cup. In the round of 16 of the “Türkiye Kupasi”, which was Fenerbahce’s only hope for the European competition, the “Canaries” could not survive against second division Ümraniyespor and lost the first and second leg. Thus, although the focus can be fully focused on the Süper Lig, ultimately the team of Yanal can win only by a great miracle, a starting place for the Europa League. However, the goal for the time being is to get back on track and score three points anyway. Only three wins are Fenerbahce in 18 league games to book. The 17th place in the table is by no means a big surprise, especially since Fenerbahce has already spoiled it at the beginning of the season to counteract the negative trend. Yanal now carries all the burden of the miserable transfer policy of the summer. At 17 goals was never to speak of a paramount danger of Fenerbahce in front of the enemy’s housing. It simply lacked a Goalgetter, partly also on wing players, who make the difference. Home Fenerbahce could win so far only for the season opener against Bursaspor and against Alanyaspor. For six league games Fenerbahce now waiting for a league success. As was the case against BB Erzurum at the end of the first half of the season, a last-minute goal was scored in the second leg against Bursaspor, which ultimately sealed the point loss.
Whether Fenerbahce will continue to upgrade on offense remains to be seen. In addition to Moses, who reinforced the team aggressively, Sadik Ciftpinar came to new. The defensive man will face his former team in a duel against Yeni Malatyaspor. Former Galatasaray defender Serdar Aziz is also in current talks with Fenerbahce. If the contract negotiations succeed, there would be the next reinforcement on the defensive. The “canaries” have shown good results again and again in recent games. After their own chances were not used, it was sometimes foreseeable that a goal would be on the way. A popular quote from Turkish coaches is not in vain: If you do not do it yourself, you’ll concede a goal. Fenerbahce had already been unable to land victories against BB Erzurumspor (14 shots on goal) and Antalyaspor (19 shots on goal), as they lost a lot of their chances. Skrtel will face two league games after being sent off in the Cup. Will Fenerbahce win against Yeni Malatyaspor this time with a tip on the “canaries”?
Expected formation of Fenerbahce:
Demirel; Kaldirim, Neustädter, Ciftpinar, Özbayrakli; Elmas, Jailson; Moses, Ekici, Dirar; Soldado

Malatyaspor – Statistics & Current Form
Under Erol Bulut Yeni Malatyaspor continues to flourish. After a strong first round to prove a place in the upper third of the table, this is one more thing but shooting down teams like Fenerbahce (1: 0), Galatasaray (2: 0) and Trabzonspor (5: 0) is the other thing Yeni Malatyaspor in this one Playtime. The Bulut Elf is completely confident and can not impress even the top clubs. In addition to solid offensive performances, Yeni Malatyaspor impressed with a strong defensive behind Basaksehir, who are among the strongest in the Süper Lig. With only one defeat at home, especially the home record was convincing. Away the whole thing did not look quite as solid with a score of 3-3-3. In the last home game against Göztepe there was surprisingly a peat festival. It was the third game for Yeni Malatyaspor, with five or more goals scored in the match. In the last nine league games, Yeni Malatyaspor lost only once. Rumors rumored that Erol Bulut would resign from Yeni Malatyaspor before the second half of the season. Despite the unrest that the Turkish media created at the beginning of the year, Bulut was able to start the new year successfully with three victories (across all competitions). If Fenerbahce go down against Yeni Malatyaspor for a go at the Bulut team, Yeni Malatya could send a clear signal to the competition in the battle for European starting places.
With Sadik Ciftpinar went an important defensive man, with Khalid Boutaib an important offensive player. But Yeni Malatyaspor could also strengthen properly. Two youngsters came from Fenerbahce with Güveli and Alici. Akbas, Yalcin and Bifouma are also to strengthen the team. Bulut was always good against the top teams from Süper Lig. Although there were no victories against teams like Besiktas (1: 2 defeat) or Basaksehir (1: 1 draw), Yeni Malatyaspor was still on equal terms over long stretches. According to the Fenerbahce vs. Malatyaspor odds should certainly keep the Bulut Elf on the list. Only the new signing Mustafa Akbas will miss the match due to injury.
Expected formation of Malatyaspor:
Farnolle; Kas, Akca, Mina, Chebake; Yalcin; Pereira, Ildiz, Donald, Aleksic; Sismanoglu
Last Games by Malatyaspor:
- 23.01.2019 – BB Bodrumspor Vs. Malatyaspor 1: 2 (Pokal)
- 19.01.2019 – Malatyaspor Vs. Göztepe 3: 2 (Süper Lig)
- 16.01.2019 – Malatyaspor Vs. BB Bodrumspor 3: 2 (Pokal)
- 11.01.2019 – Bursaspor Vs. Malatyaspor 0: 4 (Friendly Match)
