What a Saturday it was!

There were eight matches and they all started at same time...

First bad news came from Sivas. Istanbul Buyuksehir scored two goals in 17 minutes and Sivasspor fans were stunned! And Sivasspor lost the match 2-1 at the end of the 90 minutes.

This was the first loss for Sivasspor at home.

The Saturday night fever felt in all the matches that played on Saturday.

It felt it more on the bottom and middle of the league's table! Besiktas, after getting the good news from Sivas, after 17 minutes started to push more and scored the first goal in the 29th minute through Holosko.

This was the third back to back third goal for Holosko!

Then Besiktas, moved up the gears and scored three more goals to finish the match with 1-4.

This was a clutch match for Besiktas and for Mustafa Denizli—and they won it, with four goals and they did it in an away match!

After the match Mustafa Denizli said, "Now we capture the top spot and we won't let go."

I think Besiktas has a better chance finishing the season on top now!

Sivasspor have lost two last matches and draw one in the last three matches. This shows Sivasspor have run out of the gas in the league, again...


Last three weeks will be very difficult in the league.

The last team who will bite the dust in the league will probably won't be decided until last minutes of the league...

Here is the results from Saturday.....

Ankaraspor 1 : 4 Besiktas
Bursaspor 3 : 0 Konyaspor
Eskisehirspor 2 : 0 Antalyaspor
Fenerbahce 1 : 0 Denizlispor
Galatasaray 1 : 0 Ankaragucu
Genclerbirligi 3 : 1 Hacettepe
Kocaelispor 1 : 3 Trabzonspor
