Fenerbahce – Besiktas
Fenerbahce hosts Besiktas in a game from the 6th round of the Turkish Super Lig. This is one of the big derbies of Turkish football. And we are expecting it with a huge interest. Let’s take a look at these two teams’ performances since the start of the season.
Fenerbahce kicked off their campaign not in the best way possible. They are currently 12th in the Super Lig standings, which is simply not acceptable for their standards. Right now the Feneri have 6 points and a record of two wins and three losses. Simply dissapointing. Right now Fenerbahce are 7 points without the leader Istanbul Basaksehir, so they don’t have any other choice right now – they have to win.
In their last game Fenerbahce stopped their negative run of three consecutive losses, beating Konyaspor away from home. The only goal in the game was scored by Eljif Elmas in the 67th minute of the match.
During the week Fenerbahce had a game in Europa League, but the Turkish team suffered a terrible 1-4 loss during the visit to Dinamo Zagreb. Clearly their confidence is not very high at the moment.
Besiktas are currently 5th in the Super Lig standings with 10 points won and a record of three wins, one draw and one defeat. In the previous round Besiktas also won, beating Yeni Malatyaspor with 2-1 at home. Pepe and Ryan Babel scored for the Black Eagles.
During the week Besiktas had a match in Europa League, beating Norway’s Sarpsborg 98 with 3-1 at home. The goals for the win were scored by Ryan Babel, Enzo Roco and Jeremain Lens.
This is our look at the Super Lig derby between Fenerbahce and Besiktas. For sure, we shall expect a thrilling game. Fenerbahce’s start of the new season was very difficult. Let’s see if they can react now.
