Consistent competitors on the domestic stage managed to salvage a point after playing out a 1-1 draw away from home in their match against Belgian club Club Brugge in Group D's opening Europa League match.
Before that, they were confronted with a difficult challenge as they made the trip to lock horns with Trabzonspor at Papara Park, and to the surprise of many, they succumbed to a 3-0 defeat despite being the superior side in all facets of the game.
This defeat hampered their chances of recording their third consecutive win in the league, and though they have suffered just one loss in four matches alongside two wins and a draw, they will likely take motivation from that to get back on track.
They currently occupy tenth place with 7 points in the standings, with eighth-placed Hatayspor and ninth-placed Alanyaspor. Their bid for a first-place finish is hindered by a five-point deficit.
Probable Starting XI

Kayserispor have been a force to be reckoned with from their own point of view. This season, the bar was not set high, but there were aspirations for a productive season, and they were obviously hoping to improve their ninth-place finish from last season's Turkish Super Lig.
However, a five-match unbeaten run in the 2023–24 Turkish Super League campaign, which includes three draws and two wins, has them dreaming of the bigger prize, a first-place finish, though it won't be an endeavor without its hurdles along the way.
Before the international break, they failed to build up on their 2-1 win against Samsunspor at home by going out to play a 1-1 draw against Antalyaspor on the road. Despite the hiatus slowing down their momentum, they got back to their domestic league duties with a convincing 2-0 win against Gaziantep at home.
In the league, they are one of the six sides yet to suffer defeat in five matches, and this has seen them settle for a 5th place spot in the standings with nine points, level with 4th-placed Trabzonspor and three points behind the coveted first place.
