Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Ulker Stadyumu Fenerbahce Sukru Saracoglu, Istanbul
None of the three pre-season favorites to win the title Besiktas, Fenerbahce or Galatasaray is doing well in the current Super Lig standings. Fener are going to have a tough opponent for the second week in a row.
This time they will play against 4th placed Alanyaspor after losing to Trabzon last weekend. It’s fair to say this is the derby game of the round, and hosts are labelled as favorites for the win at 1.85 rate.
Current table leaders Sivasspor and Alanyaspor are the biggest surprise packages of the season. This squad has caused many upsets, having the second best goal difference in the league of +21 and being only three points away from the table leaders.
Team’s biggest strength is defending, allowing only 19 goals in 20 games, which is the best record in Super Lig.
Fenerbahce are looking strong as hosts six months into the new season. Their win rate is quite high – seven wins in nine appearances, while losing only one encounter.
Ersun Yanal can be satisfied with performances of Vedat Muriqi (scored 12 goals), Max Kruse and Emre Belozoglu. This trio has carried the team in numerous occasions so far.
