The 2022-23 Süper Lig season throws up an early test for reigning title holders Trabzonspor as they prepare to play host to Hatayspor this weekend at Medical Park Stadyumu. The two sides could not be split when they met last time, playing out a draw.
But that result did not check the former's stride, as they earned another title in the Turkish top-flight - and now, they'll be out to pick up three points as they seek to mount a successful defence of their title this term.

Trabzonspor opened their Super Lig campaign last Friday, with victory over Istanbulspor courtesy of a 2-0 triumph. Andreas Cornelius got the scoring going in the 16th minute before Stefano Denswil put the finishing touches in the closing stages.
Having nabbed a first league grown since the 20th century, the desire to add more to their tally awaits - and the hosts will be firing on all cylinders for this encounter.

A delayed start to the season meats Hatayspor did not take part in league action last week, though they did play out a 2-2 friendly on Sunday to keep their engines ticking over.
A 12th-place finish last term was by no means a bad result, but they will hope they can crack a spot in the top half of the table this time around.
Predicted Hatayspor starting XI: Kardesler; Bas, Vranjes, Oksuz, Adekugbe, Boudjemaa, Ergun, Lobzhanidze, Aabid, Varga, El Kaabi.
