BURSASPOR host Eskisehirspor at the Bursa Ataturk Stadium looking to extend the recent form which has seen them unbeaten in six of their last seven Super Lig games.

That leaves the Yesil Timsahlar sitting fourth in the division, five points of third place but with a game in hand – and they will be keen to maintain that form in this clash.

Boss Hikmet Karaman has seen his side unbeaten in their last four home outings and three clean sheets from half a dozen in front of their own fans is the kind of defensive form he will be looking for his side to replicate here.

A 4-2 victory away at Orduspor last time out will have boosted confidence in the Bursa club, and, with just two encounters remaining, a win here will keep the hosts within touching distance of third place.

Visitors Eskisehirspor travel to the north west occupying 11th place in the table – and that is largely down to some inconsistent form this campaign.

Seven without a win from their last nine shows why Ersun Yanal's side find themselves in that underwhelming league position, and, without a clean sheet since March, he will be looking to shore up his defence over the summer.

Just one victory from four on the road suggests the Red Lightnings are susceptible to travel sickness away from the Ataturk Stadyumu and that indicates they may struggle against a Bursa side which is full of momentum and vigour at the moment.

The hosts have lost just one of their last four meetings with Eskisehirspor, winning two and drawing two, and I fancy them to maintain that positive return here.

    Think my claim to fame could be that I’m probably the only person on here who has been to the Ataturk Stadyumu :) Was there in July for a Europa league qualifier!

    Not much of a stadium but it does have an impressive stand right across from the main stand where 90% of the fans go, cracking atmosphere as you’d expect from a Turkish team!

    Bursaspor looks like a good call :)

      Greg, as long as they win tonight. Caen’s the only ground I’ve been to of the sides mentioned tonight.
