Giresunspor sit just outside of the relegation zone, but with just four matches left to play, Friday’s hosts enjoy a 10-point buffer to the bottom four. They will be hoping to make sure of their Super Lig place on Friday, although hopes of a victory may be slim with their last five matches yielding just one win.
Hakan Keles must also pick his side up after they gave up a lead to lose 2-1 against Fatih Karagumruk last weekend. In the 48th minute, Chiquinho gave Giresunspor the lead from the spot, but only three minutes later, Aleksandar Pesic dispatched his penalty to restore parity before Jimmy Durmaz netted what proved to be the winner.
Despite their recent form suggesting there is room for improvement, Giresunspor can extend their unbeaten home run to five matches with a positive result on Friday. Adana Demirspor, on the other hand, require a strong finish to the season if they are to finish in the top four of the Super Lig.
We say: Giresunspor 1-1 Adana Demirspor
Giresunspor have lost just one of their last six competitive home meetings with Adana Demirspor, and we think that they will avoid defeat on Friday when they face the fifth-placed side that have lost their last two matches by a combined 7-1 scoreline.
Adana Demirspor beat Ankaragucu 3-1 last time out. Ankaragucu deserved to get at least a point from the game and it was Ozbir’s heroics in goal that brought three points to Montella’s side. The Italian manager tried a three-men defence in that game, but as his team conceded more than two dozen chances, he is expected to go back to using 4 players at the back. At home, as usual, they will control possession and create multiple chances. With Balhanda back in the starting lineup, the home team is very likely to get another win.
This match will start from 10:30 pm
This match will take place on 20 January 2023
The hosts are still without Erol Akdag and Arda Kilic, who are both long-term injury absentees.
Sergen Picinciol has started the last two matches, and with Giresunspor expected to name an unchanged lineup, the defender will continue to operate in the centre of defence alongside Alexis Perez.
Umut Nayir will lead the line for the hosts with the forward looking to add to the five league goals that he has scored this season.
As for the visitors, Montella is expected to have a fully-fit squad to choose from, although he is unable to call upon Mario Balotelli who will serve the second game of his two-match suspension.
Tayyib Sanuc is set to return to the starting lineup after dropping down to the bench against Trabzonspor, with the defender in line to partner Samet Akaydin in the centre of defence.
Kocuk; Bilazer, Picinciol, Perez, Behich; Flavio, Traore; Suleymanov, Chiquinho, Serginho; Nayir
Muric; Svensson, Akaydin, Sanuc, Rassoul; Inler, Bjarnason; Akintola, Akgun, Vargas; Assombalonga
