Abdullah Avci’s men are determined to ride on to the Super Lig title on top of their spellbinding defense. They have conceded just 11 goals in total so far, and every other squad in contention has been breached more the double of this.

Even the mighty Galatasaray has failed in keeping pace with this insanely consistent team. As 13 games remain till the end, Medipol enjoys a six-point lead at the top.

The Scorpions have not won a single game in their last ten match-days, and honestly, the fans should be worried. There would be never a worse time for them to face the team from Istanbul than now. It’s extremely concerning that even against the relegation-battler Rizespor, the team had to return without a win, the last match-day.
