The Alanya-based side have shot up through the ranks of Turkey’s top flight over the past 4 years.
Since 2013/14, which they spent in the third division, they’ve earned 2 back-to-back promotions all the way up to a 5th placement last season. Such a rise is truly meteoric but leaves us with little information available for predictions.
As far as Alanyaspor betting goes, there aren’t many options for outright bets out there. At odds of 15.00 for a title win, it seems like an insurmountable longshot. That said, after the first few legs of the 2020/21 Super Lig season, it seems their form is strong enough even to challenge some of Turkey’s big 3.
For instance, the surprise victory over Galatasaray at the start of the season tells us that if any team is going to upset the league’s standings this year, it’s Alanyaspor.
Alanyaspor Key Players
The squad kicked off the season with 5 wins in a row, leaving a very strong impression. Primarily, the success is closely tied to some of the internationals which were signed over the summer. Anastasios Bakasetas, for instance, garnered a lot of attention for his performance as a second striker.
Even though bigger hopes were put on centre-forward Khouma Babacar, who was loaned from Sassuolo, other attackers turned out to be key to the team’s new-and-improved formation.
The biggest goal-getter by far, however, is Brazillian winger Davidson who was transferred from Portugal’s Vitória Guimarães. With a whopping record of 6 goals and 2 assists over just 7 appearances, he’s the player to watch in 2020/21.
As far as defenders go, centre-forward Steven Caulker is by far the biggest name here. Team Captain Efecan Karaca is another imposing presence in the pitch, though he is most noted for his ability to set up excellent opportunities.
It is highly unusual for a football club in Turkey to have no recognized rivalries, especially in the country’s top tier, but that seems to be the case with Alanyaspor. It appears that over the course of their 71 years of existence so far they haven’t been in a situation where games against one particular opponent mean more to them than any other.
The club was formed back in 1948 in the town of Alanya, in the province of the same name positioned in the south of Turkey, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Little more can be said about their history than about their rivalries. For 36 years they competed at amateur level, before being admitted to the TFF 3. Lig (the fourth division) in 1984. They didn’t change tiers too frequently, staying in one or the other between five and ten years at a time, until only two seasons in the second division proved enough for them to win promotion to the Super Lig in 2016. There are no major trophies on their shelves yet, but it seems the history of this club is about to be written in the upcoming years. If the recent movement through the ranks of Turkish football is anything to go by, notable achievements are not far off.
