Balıkesirspor will welcome Samsunspor to Balıkesir Atatürk Stadyumu for a matchday 21 fixture in Turkey 1. Lig. The last meeting on 20th August 2021 ended in a Samsunspor 3-1 win. Both sides have met eleven times in the most recent seasons. Balıkesirspor has won 4 matches, and Samsunspor triumphed in 6. Recent outings average 2.73 goals, while both teams score 36% of the time.
Balıkesirspor's latest fixture against Boluspor ended in an away 1-0 loss. I expected more from Balıkesirspor. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
Samsunspor's recent game against Tuzlaspor ended in a home 2-2 draw. The midfielders disappointed the rest of the squad. They constantly failed to keep possession and didn't create much for the strikers. Samsunspor had good chances in both halves and scored in the 4th and 84th minute.
Since the start of the season, Balıkesirspor is more dominant at home. They have two wins out of 10 games on home soil. Although Balıkesirspor is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 20% home clean sheets.
Samsunspor has picked up 11 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Samsunspor wins 1.11 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Samsunspor kept a clean sheet in just 22% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Balıkesirspor has won just 20% of home games. On average they score 0.80 goals and concede 1.60 per game. Samsunspor won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Balıkesirspor wins on average 0.70 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Samsunspor. My prediction is Samsunspor to win.
