Turkey Super League Saturday Wrap Up!

AHMET BOB TURGUT@turkishsoccerCorrespondent IFebruary 15, 2009


Just think, if Fenerbahce had won their match last week ,they would be on top of Galatasaray in the standings today with three points ahead of them!...

But, they made it up today against, leagues worst team Hacettepespor...

They scored seven unanswered goals ....Alex made hat trick and Turkish Striker Semih Senturk scored two goals..

Roberto Carlos and Deived also scored for Fenerbahce..

Make no mistake though, Fenerbahce will never find a team like Hacettepe again!

Hacettepe, should not be in this league at all. It is disgrace and a shame.

Politics and favoritism in this league , keeps teams like Hacettepe, Istanbul Buyuk sehir Belediye and Ankaraspor in this league!..

And I don't like it!.....

FENERBAHCE smashed seven goals past Hacettepe to climb level on points with Galatasaray, who lost ground on the leaders with a defeat away to Antalyaspor on Saturday.

Hat-trick hero Alex got things started with two goals in the space of five minutes early in the match, and further strikes from Diego Lugano, Semih Senturk and Deivid de Souza made it 5-0 at the break.

Fener were not done, though, and Senturk got his second soon after the re-start before Alex made the match ball his with a 58th-minute strike.


It was a very different story for Galatasaray however as they went down to Ahmet Kuru's 59th-minute goal in Antalya, against Antalyaspor..

Both teams,Fenerbahce and Galatasaray are on 37 points, four behind Sivasspor and Trabzonspor who share the top spot in the Turkish Turkcell Super League..

Elsewhere ON Saturday....

Ankaragucu pulled themselves three points clear of the drop zone with a 3-1 win over Gaziantepspor.

Silvino Joao Jaba and Murat Duruer scored in the final five minutes of the first half and, although Rodrigo Tabata scored a 49th-minute penalty for the visitors, Jaba's second in the 73rd minute locked up the points.

Eskisehirspor and Genclerbirligi shared the points in a goalless score.



It will be a show time in Besiktas's Inonu Stadium on Sunday...

League's top team Trabzonspor will face another "up and down" team Besiktas!...

Besiktas with a win here, could capture the third spot and surpass Galatasaray and Fenerbahce.

Actually, Besiktas could do a favor to Galatasaray and Fenerbahce too..

The gap will still be patchable,,,,,

But, Trabzonspor is very good...fast and aggressive team!...

It is going to be a good match! .....

If , Trabzonspor wins this match , Besiktas will pretty much will be out of top spot race.

Because, at the end of the 20th week, Besiktas will have 35 points and the top teams Sivasspor and Trabzonspor will put a though fight for the top spot!.....

On the other hand, Speaking of Sivasspor will be away...

They have a real test against Bursaspor in Bursa....

Bursaspor , will have their 12th man , in the stands to effect out come of this match too!....

Sivasspor, has to win this match if they want to stay on top, just like Trabzonspor!..

Also, on Sunday in the early matches, Ankaraspor will face İstanbul BB in Ankara,
In Denizli, Denizlispor will host Konyaspor, this is a must win match for Denzilispor if they lose this match, they could kiss good- bye this league , in my opinion. I think they made a huge mistake by firing their former coach Umit Kayihan.

Last time, last season when Vestel Manisaspor did that , they went down to the lower division. Manisaspor at the time fired Giray Bulak and Hired a part time coach and part time LIG TV commentator Yilmaz Vural and that was it!,,,, You just can"t do that.. now they are paying for it.....
Denizlispor is looking like this too, in my opinion....

Lastly Kocaelispor will host a strong Kayserispor at home.

So, Enjoy your Turkish Soccer on Sunday!...
