Trabzonspor vs Hatayspor prediction and betting tips on February 12, 2024
In Turkey, at least 1 match is constantly shifted to the beginning of the new week. This time, there will be several confrontations at once, including the battle between Trabzonspor and Hatayspor. The hosts are obviously stronger, but will they prove it on the field? The authors of the website have prepared an announcement and a prediction for this match on February 12, 2024.
Trabzonspor plays pretty good football
“The Black Sea Storm” was able to remind of its greatness in 2022. Finally, after a pause of almost 4 decades, it became the champion again – that happened for the seventh time. Still, it was not possible to defend the title: the last rally brought only 6th place. At the same time, the Turkish club was eliminated from the Champions League qualification by Copenhagen and was only in 3rd position in the not-so-difficult group of the Europa League. Nowadays, it turned out better: Abdullah Avci’s wards are claiming 3rd place. This time, there have been 4 defeats in a row, which are typical not only for the struggles with the giants, Galatasaray, but also for the confrontations with the direct competitors, Rizespor and Beşiktaş, as well as Kasimpasa.
Hatayspor performs quite well
“The White and Burgundies” were founded in the mid-60s of the previous century. Still, the progress was made in a pretty quickly way, half a century later, in the 2010s. If the team played at the level of the fourth local division in 2008-2012, then it managed to make the debut in the Süper Lig in 8 years. The performance there had to be interrupted after the earthquake a year ago. Nevertheless, the club retained its place, and Volkan Demirel’s wards, although not particularly bright, look quite good. Speaking about the previous rounds, the team managed to first win minimally in the struggle with Adana Demirspor, and then win with a 3-1 score in the home battle against Fatih Karagümrük. This allowed the club to move up to a distance of 4 points from the relegation zone. At the same time, it’s certainly too early to relax; the fight for survival in the Turkish Süper Lig will continue until the last round.
