Preview: Samsunspor vs. Adana Demirspor - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Saturday's Turkish Super Lig clash between Samsunspor and Adana Demirspor, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Samsunspor will be looking to end their winless run when they host Adana Demirspor at the Samsun 19 Mayis Stadium on Saturday evening.

The hosts have not won any of their last three competitive matches while the visitors are without a win in their last two matches.

Samsunspor salvaged a 1-1 draw with Besiktas last weekend, fighting back through Semih Kilicsoy in the second half after conceding in the first.

The Red Lightning have only won one of their last five games and sit 12th in the Super Lig table with 38 points after 32 matches.

However, Markus Gisdol's side are seven points clear of the relegation zone and are almost guaranteed another season in the top flight, barring a major collapse in the remaining fixtures.

Samsunspor return home this weekend against Adana Demirspor where they are unbeaten in their last three matches. They have been strong at home so far, picking up 30 points from 16 matches, making them the fifth-best team on home soil.

The Red Lightning won the reverse fixture 3-2 and will be looking to complete the double over Adana. They have also dominated their home fixtures against Saturday's opponents, winning 11, losing four and drawing seven of their 22 encounters at Samsun 19 Mayis Stadium.

Adana Demirspor are winless in their last two matches after a goalless draw with Kayserispor at the New Adana Stadium last Saturday.

Hikmet Karaman's side are currently nine points clear of the relegation zone and eight points behind fourth-placed Besiktas, having picked up 40 points.

Adana's struggles have come on the road this campaign, as they are the fourth-worst team in the league with just nine points from their away trips.

Ending their winless run will be the goal this weekend, but they remain the only team without an away win in the Super Lig this season, and have recorded the most draws on the road.

Team News

Samsunspor will be without Lubomir Satka for the remainder of the season due to an ankle injury.

The Red Lightning will also be unable to call upon Carlo Holse due to a one-match suspension for accumulated yellow cards.

Adana have close to a full squad available for this match, with only Nabil Alioui being a doubt as he is dealing with a thigh injury.

Mario Balotelli is expected to lead the line once again with Emre Akbaba, Nani and Yusuf Sari making up the supporting cast.

Samsunspor possible starting lineup:
Kocuk; Yavru, Van Drongelen, Ozturk, Gonul; Bennasser, Antalyali; Schindler, Ntcham, Kilinc; Mouandilmadji

Adana Demirspor possible starting lineup:
Mahammadaliyev; Atal, Gravillon, Guler, Erdogan; Michut, Maestro; Nani, Akbaba, Sari; Balotelli

We say: Samsunspor 1-0 Adana Demirspor

Samsunspor aim to extend their good home unbeaten record against Adana Demirspor, who are winless on the road all season. Despite Samsunspor's recent struggles, home advantage and a dominant historical record at the stadium favour a narrow victory for the Red Lightning.
