Fenerbahce vs Akhisarspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 4 March 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK
Venue: Ulker Stadyumu Fenerbahce Sukru Saracoglu Spor Kompleksi (Istanbul).
Fenerbahce got off to a perfect start when Fernandao pushed them in front early on last weekend away against city rivals Besiktas. Even though the Yellow Canaries have shown decent defensive displays of late keeping clean sheets in back-to-back league outings against Istanbul Basaksehir and Alanyaspor, they’ve allowed the defending champions make a second-half comeback and win the match 3-2 at the end.
This leaves Aykut Kocaman’s men with an imperative to get the result this Sunday when Fener host mid-table Akhisarspor, The visitors have the potential of putting up a decent effort to league’s heavyweights here, particularly after a stellar form shown over the last couple of weeks.
Akigo have won three on the bounce in Super Lig without conceding a single time in the process. Nonetheless, Okan Buruk’s men could not do much to prevent a loss in the first leg of their scup semis against Galatasaray (1-2 on Tuesday). Additionally, Akhisarspor have been struggling badly to keep things tight at the back on travels throughout the entire season. Before the 0-3 victory over Kardemir Karabukspor, Akigo have lost there and drawn one of last four league outings on the road.
