Bursaspor vs Trabzonspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 12th April 2019
Kick-off at 18.30 UK/ 19.30 CET
Venue: Bursa Atatürk Stadyumu (Bursa).
21 points are up for grabs in the Turkish Lig, and teams at the bottom have been on frenzy. Bursaspor is floating on the relegation line, with just one point acting as a safety. As has been the case in football, such a buffer has the potential to vanish overnight, and to be frank, Bursaspor fans should light some candles for the future of their players in the league next season.
Trabzonspor, along with the top three teams in the table, has been in a league of their own. The four European spots are safely in their custody, and the remaining sides don’t stand a realistic chance in acquiring it. Such has been their form, and such is their lead at the top.
