Ankaragucu vs Giresunspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: 20 April 2023, Thursday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Eryaman Stadyumu (Ankara).
Giresunspor celebrated a massive 1-0 victory over Sivasspor on Sunday afternoon to escape the red zone and move up to 15th place in the league table.
Jorman Campuzano made the difference by bagging the only goal of the game just 18 minutes in. Giresunspor have not shown enough ambition to threaten the rivaling goal since the opener but they did manage to keep things tight in front of their own net to secure a precious three-pointer.
Giresunspor will not travel to Eryaman Stadyumu to take on direct rivals Ankaragucu in a proper relegation six-pointer in Gameweek 30 on Thursday afternoon.
Ankaragucu got super unlucky to drop the point(s) on Saturday night in Istanbul as they allowed Fenerbahce to complete a late comeback with two goals inside the final ten minutes of action.
Tolunay Kafkas’ men thus ended a two-win streak as they had earlier beaten both Trabzonspor (Turkish Cup) and Istanbulspor (Super Lig), bagging three goals in each of these wins.
It is also worth noting that Ankaragucu will go into this on the back of three subsequent home wins across competitions.
On the other side, Giresunspor are winless in seven successive away games in Super Lig. The visitors have suffered some tough losses on the road of late, including the 5-1 failure at Kasimpasa and 3-1 defeat at Besiktas in two of their previous three away games.
