Hatyaspor will host Istanbul Basaksehir in a Turkish Super Lig fixture at New Hatay Stadium on Monday night. The hosts are heading into the match on the back of a 4-1 defeat to Akaragucu last Sunday, while Istanbul Basaksehir got the better of Hearts in a Europa Conference League match four days later. Hatyaspor are currently languishing at the 17th spot in the Turkish top flight standings, having collected just 10 points from 11 games. The visitors, on the other hand, are sitting at the third position with 23 points to their name.

Hatayspor who had earned promotion to the top tier of Turkish football in 2020 appears to be in slight danger of returning to the second tier after a difficult start to the season. Despite winning three of their last five league games, the Star of the South are still languishing in the relegation zone, just two points adrift of safety. Volkan Demirel’s side lost to Ankaragucu despite the fact that Ayoub El Kaabi got on the scoresheet last weekend. Prior to that, Hatayspor came from behind to beat Besiktas 2-1 at home. Ze Luis canceled out Wout Weghorst’s early opener before Kaan Kanak netted a last-ditch winner for the Star of the South. It was Hatyaspor’s third league-win of the campaign.
Istanbul Basaksehir, on the other hand, got the better of Hearts on Thursday to secure a top spot in Group A and thereby earn qualification to the knockout stages of Europa Conference League. Youssouf Ndayishimiye, Serdar Gurler and Berkay Ozcan netted for the Grey Owls at Basaksehir stadium to secure the win. Prior to that, Emre Belzoglu’s side got the better of Giresunspor with a similar scoreline courtesy of goals from Ndayishimiye, Philippe Keny and Omer Ali Sahiner. It was the Orange-Navy Blues’ seventh league-win of the season. Istanbul Basaksheir are just three points adrift of leaders Fenerbahce.
Hatayspor probable starting lineup: Kardesler, Alici, Vranjes, Oksuz, Adekugbe, Boudjemaa, Ergn, Aabid, El Kaabi, Ze Luis, Varga
