The derby match of the Turkish Super Lig 25th round is going to be contested between Basaksehir and Fenerbahce.
The hosts are the main title contenders as they are eight points ahead of defending champions Galatasaray.
Home side is enjoying a very good run as they allowed just one point to their rivals in the last seven rounds, while they’ve lost only two matches so far.
Although their attacking work hasn’t been impressive, Gael Clichy are really hard to crack as they allowed only eleven goals. Basaksehir are very confident at home ground as they booked seven wins in eleven matches in front of their fans.
Fenerbahce are the biggest underachievers this season as they are sitting in the bottom half of the table being only two points ahead of the relegation zone. They have been in variable form lately as the visitors celebrated only two wins in the last five occasions.
Ersun Yanal’s side hasn’t been tight enough in the back, while their attacking work isn’t too impressive. Fenerbahce managed to celebrate just once at away grounds this season and from the last five outings, they’ve picked up three points.
