Fenerbahce vs Trabzonspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium (Istanbul).
Trabzonspor is comfortably in the playoff list, and it’d take quite a miracle now for them to be replaced from that spot. While Europa League entry is almost certain for the team, even Champions League is not that far away. With 15 points left to play for, they have to make up a difference of just seven points to see their dream come true.
Fenerbahce is in the lower tier of the table and has won just four of their last five league ties. While they have a good home record to boast of, it alone would not be enough for the team to mount some serious challenge at least in the next season.
Fenerbahce vs Trabzonspor Head-to-head (h2h)

- The last two encounters at this stadium had goals at either end of the pitch.
Fenerbahce vs Trabzonspor Prediction
Trabzonspor is on a winning streak of five games and scored two or more goals in four of their last six attempts. They have also a strong claim on the last Europa League spot and are currently gunning for a Champions League entry. In the meanwhile, Fenerbahce is at the other end of the table and is fighting off relegation.
Trabzonspor also was unbeaten in 12 of their last 15 away ties, while Fenerbahce was winless in seven of their last ten overall ties. Going on, the last four h2h encounters saw Trabzonspor avoiding a loss.
As such, expect the top-tier team to stay unbeaten at this venue, and if possible, record their first ever win at this venue. Fenerbahce will not make things easy though. As mentioned, they have never lost at home against this opponent and were unbeaten in 21 of their last 24 home ties. Also, the last four h2h ties in a row and the last two at this venue had goals from both teams.
With the hosts trying to avoid relegation, and the visitors going after the Champions League, expect a fierce game, with both teams getting in on the scoresheet.
