The Scorpions’ recent history is quite inconsistent as far as results go.
Over the past 3 seasons, they’ve recorded a 7th, 9th, and 15th placement respectively, indicating a bit of a downward trend. Additionally, they’ve started the 2020/21 Super Lig season with mixed results, hovering towards the middle of the table.
You know as well as us that inconsistency is bad for wagering. Moreover, outright Super Lig betting odds for Antalyaspor are only available for To Win markets at odds of around 67. Surprisingly enough, this marks them as the league’s 7th-strongest club. Still, qualifications for Europe are quite far – and a title win ever farther.
For now, staying in the top half is all Antalyaspor can hope for.
Antalyaspor Key Players
Last season, we saw the team often employ a narrow yet balanced formation with a big focus on the midfield diamond.
If the new arrivals are of any indication, the new coach Ersun Yanal won’t be making sweeping changes to this core idea. Centre-back Naldo was signed, which should give the backline some versatility. Former Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin also signed on, along with Huesca’s Serdar Gürler.
Dogukan Sinik remains the most important part of the midfield as far as attacks are concerned. However, Adis Jahovic is generally Antalya’s main goal-getter. With 17 goals over 31 appearances, he was the third most prolific striker in the 2019/20 season – albeit for two clubs, after a mid-season transfer from Malatyaspor.
There is no team which Antalyaspor defines as the greatest rivals. There are several regional rivalries in the Mediterrenean, such as those with Denizlispor, Mersin Idmanyurdu and Adanaspor. However, there are also those of different regions, the ones with Bursaspor and Eskisehirspor standing out. A fierce rivalry was created with Konyaspor as well when Antalyaspor hero Samuel Eto’o made his way there in January 2018.
The club was founded in 1966 through a merge of three other clubs – Yenikapi SuSpor, Ilk Isikspor and Ferrokromspor, with the aim of establishing a single, strong club in the coastal city of Antalya. They went through the lower ranks of the Turkish football system for almost a decade and a half before finally winning their way into the Super Lig in 1982.
After a few years of turbulence, they became a relatively stable team, changing tiers only after long periods in either of the top two, and their best ever league result to this day is the Super Lig fifth place in 2016/17. They played in the final of the Turkish Cup once, in 2000, and lost to Galatasaray.
