After Sivasspor was held by Konyaspor in Konya to a scoreless draw, Besiktas has a chance to capture the Turkish Turkcell Super League top spot if they win against Bursaspor on Sunday night in Istanbul.

Turkcell Super League 28th week started with Trabzonspor against Genclerbirlgi on Friday and Tranbzonspor after beating Genclerbirligi with two unanswered goals.

With this win Trabzonspor stayed in the race for the top spot.

SATURDAY WRAP:

There was only two matches on Saturday in The Turkish Turkcell Super League.

In the early match in Konya, League Leader Sivasspor had a Konya obstacle in their plate and they knew that!

Because, Konyaspor was desperate for points to get out of the danger zone of the league.

And They respected the Konyaspor coach Giray Bulak, they new he would have his team ready against them.

In the ninety minutes of the they were some hits and misses on both goals...

Sivasspor's two shots came of the wood works...

Konyaspor also had a lot of chance in the second half but could not cash in.

At the end both of the teams were not happy with results.

Konysaspor wanted a three points to reach 33 point mark. On the other hand Sivasspor lost momentum from their bid to Turkish Championship, in my opinion.

Ever since Sivasspor Benched Balili, Sivaspor is not the Sivasspor we watched in the first half of the season.

I think Balili and Mehmet Yildiz, up front, clicked more better in my opinion.

If Sivaspor keeps losing point like this they might even end up losing the second place .

This should be a wake up call for Sivasspor.

Because, at the end of this weekend, they might lose the topp spot to Besiktas than
they still have to face Trabzonspor and Galatasaray yet, in the League.

That is why crucial weeks start for Sivasspor after this weekend.

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO FENERBAHCE?

This is the question that every Fenerbahce fans are asking them selves.

What Happened to the team that played in last year's quarter final, in the UEFA Champions League?

Well, Fenerbahce on Saturday in Ankara went down agains one more time.

This time against Ankaraspor.

The former Fenerbahce legend player Aykut Kocaman, who coaches Ankaraspor, beat his former team.

Fenerbahce was missing Alex, Semih, Edu, Lugano, and goalkeeper Volkan.

This was the must win match for Fenerbahce in order to continue its chance to catch up the other teams on top.

Fenerbahce is nine points behind the current leader Sivasspor with 48 points.

If Fenerbahce does not win their all six reaming matches in the league, they could well be left out of European competition next season.

That would be a disaster for Fenerbahce fans...

I Think, Fenerbahce President made a huge mistake when he let go Brazilian great Zico, after he took Fenerbahce to Champions League quarter finals.

This is a perfect sample about Turkish football in general!

Constancy, is the big problem with Turkish football.

We could say this, about Turkish National Team and Fatih Terim.

We could say this, about Galatasaray team who won the UEFA cup...

And now, we could say this about Fenerbahce.

SUNDAY SHOW DOWN

The match of the week will be between Besiktas and Bursaspor in Istanbul, in my opinion.

After watching Sivasspor losing points, Besiktas will be more focused in this match.

But, Bursaspor is not easy team to beat, though!

As a matter of fact,they are coached by Former Besiktas coach Ertugrul Saglam, who earlier in the season coached Besiktas.

He knows the Besiktas team well...

But, I am sure Besiktas coach will have a couple of his tricks against Bursaspor as well.

A win will fly Besiktas, to first place but, a draw won't!

Also on Sundays, there are many games that will effect the bottom of the barrel.

The teams are feeling the heat will play against the team who are in relegation zone.

Denizlispor who has 29 points will be against the team who has 23 points Kocaelispor.

Eskisehirspor will play against Ankaragucu.

Ankaragucu has 27 points and Eskisehirspor has 33.

The team with 32 points Antalyaspor will be at home against the team is chasing Bursaspor, Kayserispor.

Istanbul B.B who is also feeling the heat with 30 points will face Galatasaray.

This is a must match for both team. If Galatasaray wants to remain in the chase, they have to win. On the other hand, it is a must win match for Istanbul B.B, if they don't want to face the relegation.

Lastly, the team who is in comfort zone Gaziantepspor will face the helpless last place team Hacettepe who is definite will goo down at the end of the season.
