Fenerbahce desperate for win

It has been a terrible month for Fenerbahce, but they will be looking to avenge themselves Saturday evening when visiting Konyaspor. These are not exactly golden years for Fenerbahce who sit in 7th place, 12 points behind leaders Trabzonspor. They are even nine points adrift of 4th placed Sivasspor, so they need a win and they need it fast.

For that purpose, there are worse places to go than Konyaspor. Home is where the points are racked up for most sides, but not for Konyaspor though. They have been nothing but atrocious on home soil this season. Their tally of nine points from 12 home league games this season is the worst in the Super Lig.

They have managed only one win at home this side. The only thing keeping down from being deeply rooted in the relegation battle is their ability to at least avoid defeat. With 11 draws from 25 league matches they are by far and wide the kings of the draw in Turkey. They have seriously struggled with goals as well, scoring just six goals in 12 home games this season.

Not surprisingly their defence has lacked quality as well conceding an average of 1.17 goals per home game. Amazingly, they are still in front of Fenerbahce when looking at the form table for the previous six league matches. Fenerbahce is usually challenging for the title at this stage of a season. Instead, they are winless in six league games with three defeats in that run.

Their main problem has been their defence, as they have been on target in 13 league matches on the trot. However, they have conceded a whopping 11 goals in five matches. The one positive the away side have is their ability to score late goals. They have scored 13 goals in the final 15 minutes of games this season. The home side has been the complete opposite. Konyaspor have scored just thrice in the final 15 minutes this season while conceding 11 times in that time slot.

It is not often you would find us backing a side without a win in six league games. When playing the worst home side in the league that is just what we will do. Fenerbahce has the scoring power to dispatch this side and are unbeaten in five against Konyaspor.
