It is the last tango in the Turkish Turkcell Super League and it's the Championship Saturday too.

Turkcell Super League Leader Besiktas could clinch the title with a away win or a draw in Denizli.

Denizlispor who is safe by only goal average, would want to get at least a point from Besiktas to reach 39 points mark.

But, a draw might cost a problem for Besiktas if Sivasspor beats Galatasaray in Istanbul and scores three or more goals they could well capture the league's Championship.

Could this happened?

It could well do!

This is very crucial weekend for Sivasspor. Not only not winning the Championship, they could also lose the second place to Trabzonspor, if they lose against Galatasaray in Istanbul.

That is why, a win is a must for Sivasspor, not only to hope for the championship but also to retain the second place...

If they lose on Saturday it will be disaster for Sivasspor fans. Instead of getting a shot at the Champions League, they will end up in third place and they will end up in the newly formated Euro League qualification matches.

So, Turkcell Super League's top and bottom and the last weekend is very complicated!

The team who is following Sivasspor, Trabzonspor, will host this year's most disappointed team Fenerbahce in Trabzon.

While Trabzonspor is at 65 point, Sivasspor is at 66 points.

The team who sits on top, Besiktas ,at 68 points.


At the bottom, Konyaspor and Antalyaspor will play life and death matches on Saturday. Antalyaspor will be home against Ankaragucu while Konyaspor will hoat another Ankara team Ankaraspor.

Konyaspor has to beat Ankaraspor and look for a little help from Ankaragucu team.

In case of a draw in Antalyaspor v Ankaragucu match even Konyaspor wins at home they will be the team that will be relegated to the Banka Asya Turkish First League next season.

Hacettepe and Kocaelispor already said goodbye to the Turkcell Super League.

So, the long 34 week marathon in the Turkish Turkcell Super league will come to end this Saturday. The winners will be happy and the losers will be sad!

"The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat" will be felt in the Turkish Turkcell Super League this Saturday...

Lastly, let's welcome the newcomers Diyarbakirspor, Kasimpasa, and Manisaspor to the Turkcell Super League.

Enjoy your Championship Saturday....
