Alanyaspor and Antalyaspor duel for a place in the Turkish Cup final. The qualification is not yet decided, even if Alanyaspor has the advantage of its own field and of the victory with 1-0 in the round.
The winner will meet in the last act Trabzonspor, the leader of the Super League.
It is on the 6th position in the Super League, but the chances to get a place in the European Cup on this chain are very small.
But he will play in the Europa League if he reaches the final and Trabzonspor wins the championship.
He doesn’t have the best morale before this game. It comes after a 0-2 defeat at Basaksehir, but it is not excluded to have reduced the speed a bit to have the players rested in this semifinal.
In the quarters he eliminated Galatasaray, the decisive match having 8 yellow cards and one red one!
In the first part of the season it was based on the successes of Patrick Cisse, the team’s top scorer with 16 successes.
He is out of shape, without a goal scored in the last 8 official matches.
Coach Erol Bulut will not be able to count on defensive midfielder Manolis Siopis, injured for a long time.
Welinton is suspended for the red card he received in the round.
He is right in the middle of the Super League standings, totally carefree about relegation.
It comes after a series of 8 matches without defeat and with at least one goal scored in the championship.
He qualified for the semifinals after eliminating Nigde Anadolu, Eyupspor, Goztepe and Sivasspor in turn.
The decisive sleeve in the quarters had 7 yellow cards!
The Macedonian Adis Jahovic is the main scorer with 13 goals, but without a goal scored in the last 5 official matches.
He will be joined by veteran Lukas Podolski!
▪️The round leg was a balanced and tense one, with 7 cards (including a red one) and with one goal scored, in the extra minutes by Junior Fernandes.
⚽Alanyaspor vs Antalyaspor teams likely:

Football Prediction of the Day Alanyaspor vs Antalyaspor
The previous direct meeting on Bahçeşehir Okulları Stadyumu had 6 yellow cards, given that the stakes were not so high then.
A one-goal advantage can be traced back to Antalyaspor, especially as the away team is in very good shape. Practically the only defeat of the guests in the last 5 months is the one in the round table. 5 days ago, Antalyaspor prevailed on the field of Besiktas, an opponent better ranked than Alanyaspor.
So a balanced and … tense match awaits us, in which both teams will give their all on the field for a historic qualification in the Turkish Cup final.
We will definitely have many fouls, nervous outbursts, simulations or time lags, so I consider that there are very high chances to have at least 5 cards, given that there were 7 warnings in the tour!
