FKS vs SIV Fantasy Prediction: Must win encounter for Faith as they slip out of the Top Four in the tournament.
Marred by inconsistent results, Faith Karagumruk have never really been able to leave their mark upon the Super Lig in the opening couple months of the new season. While the team has managed to scrape its way through to results to stay within earshot of a place in the top 4, the side knows it can’t go far without a string of consistent results.
Currently in 5 th spot, Faith will be looking to breach the top 4 with a win to their name today. Only the one point behind fourth place, Faith will be yearning to record what would be only their second win in five matches come this Saturday.
Handed out a favourable tie, Faith will be quietly confident of pulling off the three points when they go clashing heads with Sivasspor. With 2 defeats in their last five matches, Sivasspor have plummeted all the way down into 15th spot, a club which has offered little of note till now.
A closely contested fixture, we envisage this being a low scoring tie, one which should just about swing in the home side’s favour owing to their attacking repertoire of players.
Cristobal, Vato and Yannis are all out with injuries for Faith.
Felix’s injury means he’ll be out of action for the upcoming encounter.

FKS vs SIV Fantasy Prediction
Mamadou Samassa from Sivasspor will be inducted into our side as the shot stopper for this contest. He managed to stave away Galatasaray’s bevy of shots the last time he stepped out for the side, dishing out a performance which saw his side stay in the contest all across the 90 minutes.
Although Faith have done little to cover themselves in glory when it comes to the attacking side of the game, we’ll still be opting for a trio of picks from the side for this affair. They are taking on a Sivasspor club which has scored on a measly 7 occasions in 8 ties, a side Faith can accumulate an elusive cleansheet against.
Paired with that narrative, Ervin Zukanovic has the two goals to show for his travails to make him the first pick from the side. Partnering him up are Jure Balkovec and Eric Lichaj, two fullbacks who have offered much needed support to the side’s attacking plays.
Top scoring for the home side with the four goals to his name, Erik Sabo was always going to find a place in our setup for the outing. We’ll be pairing him up with Lucas Biglia who has popped up with the one assist two names capable of making the most of a vulnerable Sivasspor defence.
Sivasspor will have their top scorer as well grace this docket with us roping in two goal man Max Gradel for the tie with Hakan Arslan who has the one assist linking up with him.
Having thumped home three goals for the home side, Faith’s Alassane Ndao has run the show in attack for his club. And he’s found pinch perfect assistance in Artur Sobiech who has the two assists, two names who’ll move in unison to wipe the floor with Sivasspor’s defence.
The visitors elsewhere will be represented by Olarenwaju Kayode who has the one assist to show for himself.
Captain and vice-captain
Sabo’s four strikes see him lead our side out as the captain while Sobiech is the vice-captain.
