Below you’ll find the crème de la crème of this week’s fantasy studs, provided to you by the masterminds behind Fantezi Futbol Türkiye.

Flash Players

Rachid Ghezzal (Beşiktaş, Midfielder)

After the finalization of his transfer to Beşiktaş this season, Rachid Ghezzal joined his team-mates lately. In the first two gameweeks of the season, he couldn’t show the similar performance that he did last year. With Beşiktaş’s new signings such as Michy Batshuayi and Alex Teixeira, they have a stronger attacking force now. Ghezzal’s performance will be on the highest level in the forthcoming games. We expect him to give his first scoring contribution in this week’s game against Fatih Karagümrük.

Edin Visca (Istanbul Başakşehir, Midfielder)

After his 10 years of successful performance in Istanbul Başakşehir, we surprisingly saw him in the substitutes for last week’s game. He played around half an hour coming from the substitutes, which means that he doesn’t have any injury problems and it’s the decision of coach Aykut Kocaman. During the game, we observed that Istanbul Başakşehir’s attacking performance is below average without Edin Visca. So, we expect him to be in the starting eleven again in this week’s Kayserispor game. Kayseirspor has many missing players this week and Istanbul Başakşehir is close to win the game. Edin Visca is one of the possible star players of this week.

Enner Valencia (Fenerbahçe, Forward)

After he recovered from his injury, Enner Valencia made a good start to the season with a late goal against Antalyaspor coming from substitutes. After Süper Lig game, he showed us a world-class performance with his hat-trick in Europa League game against HJK Helsinki on Thursday. He is definitely the first option for striker position in Vitor Pereira’s formation. Fenerbahçe will play against Altay and we expect a similar performance from Enner Valencia in this game.

Mario Balotelli (Adana Demirspor, Forward)

Italian star player’s performance in first two games were highly encouraging for the forthcoming games of the league. He helped his team to draw at Kayserispor game with his assist in Süper Lig’s 2nd week. Adana Demirspor has not earned the points that they expected from their star signings yet. They are playing against Konyaspor at home. Despite Konyaspor’s good start to Süper Lig, we expect Adana Demirspor to win the game under the leadership of Mario Balotelli. He is a suitable pick for this game.

Surprise Pick

Kamil Ahmet Çörekçi (Hatayspor, Defender)

Hatayspor’s new transfer from Trabzonspor made a good start to the season with his impressive performance during the first two games. He played 90 minutes in both games and made an assist in the game against Galatasaray. He is an attacking back with potential contribution for the score-sheet. Hatayspor will play against Alanyaspor at home after the bad start they made and earned only one point in first two games. Kamil Ahmet Çörekçi is a suitable pick for both clean sheet and attacking potential.

Recommended Teams for Player Picks

Beşiktaş

After their surprise point loss against Gaziantep FK, Beşiktaş will play against Fatih Karagümrük this week again at home. Before the national games fixture break, they don’t want to lose another point in this game. We expect an aggressive attacking play from Beşiktaş this week. Rachid Ghezzal, Cyle Larin, Michy Batshuayi, Rıdvan Yılmaz and Valentin Rosier might be suitable picks for the game aginst Fatih Karagümrük.

Istanbul Başakşehir

Başakşehir made a bad start to the season and lost their first two games in Süper Lig. Both the performance and the results have not been meeting the expectations so far. Aykut Kocaman is trying to fix the problems especially in the defending line. This week’s Kayserispor game is a good opportunity for them to make the things turnaround. Edin Visca, Fredrik Gulbrandsen, Deniz Türüç, Lucas Lima and Volkan Babacan are players to be picked from Istanbul Başakşehir this week.
