It is not surprising that Kasimpasa are hovering just above the finish line considering they have the lowest scoring team in the league.
Selcuk Inan has been appointed manager to replace Senol Can, who saw his team score just 11 goals in their first 13 games, a Super Lig low. Selcuk Inan’s team is only two points clear of trouble.
Can’s poor home performance didn’t help matters either; they suffered 6-0 and 4-1 losses here to Fenerbahce and Adana Demirspor, respectively, and as a result, have one of the worst home records in the league.
However, they lost at home once more to Umraniyespor in the Turkish Cup on Tuesday under Inan’s leadership.
They could take some heart from a respectable result in their only friendly during the mid-season break, as a late Florent Hadergjonaj penalty saw them draw 1-1 with Trabzonspor.
The situation for Sivasspor is even worse as they only managed to earn one point from their final four games before the break, which allowed them to fall into the relegation zone.
In their final game before the break, they drew at home against bottom-placed Umraniyespor, which was disappointing after away losses to Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor that were understandable.
They picked up the same number of points (11) in six group games as they did in 14 Super Lig matches this season, indicating that their domestic campaign has been disrupted by their participation in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
However, since the break, they have shown promise, winning friendlies against Partizani Tirana, Saarbrucken, and Ankaragucu before thrashing Erokspor 5-2 this week.
The ideal resumption for them here would be to improve on their away form which ranks as the worst in the division, following five defeats from their six matches on the road.
