Sivasspor Retakes Top Spot from Trabzonspor

AHMET BOB TURGUTCorrespondent IFebruary 8, 2009

Sivasspor moved back into shared first place after beating Kocaelispor 2-0 on Saturday.

Sivasspor's new goal scorer, Frenchman Yanick Kamanan, scored the first goal in the 17th minute, and Israeli Pini Balili netted the second goal for Sivasspor.

On Friday, Trabzonspor was saved by the bell! They scored the winning goal in the last seconds of the match against Ankaragucu. They won the match 2-1.

Galatasaray Held by Referee and Kayserispor!

Galatasaray dropped two important points in a 1-1 draw with Kayserispor. Nonda did put Galatasaray ahead on 27 minutes, but Kayserispor's Mehmet Eren scored a dramatic and last-minute goal to make it 1-1.

Galatasaray's keeper made a huge mistake on this goal.

Also, the referee of the match was just awful in this match. Referee Selcuk Dereli should quit reffing. He is just bad. He sent Lincoln off with a second yellow card in the 29th minute!

Besiktas and Fenerbache Have a Chance To Catch Galatasaray on Sunday

The race for the top is heating up.

While Sivaspor and Trabzonspor share the league's top spot with 41 points after Galatasaray claps in Istanbul, thanks to the referee of the match, this race could heat up if Besiktas and Fenerbahce win their matches on Sunday. They could catch Galatasaray and share the third place spot with 37 points.

So we could see three teams tied up for third place at the end of this weekend.

But it will not be easy, because in the early match that will be broadcast live on LIGTV, Besiktas will be in Konya.

They are desperate for points to get out of the danger zone and they are playing at home. It will be hard for Besiktas to win this match.

On the other hand, Fenerbahce will also play a team who has been struggling. Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediye is also in the hot seat. If they don't get a point or points out of this match, it will be a disaster for them.

These are the two games that will be broadcast live by LIGTV on Sunday, but there are three other matches on Sunday during the daytime. So, enjoy your Turkish Soccer on Sunday!
