Trabzonspor signs three players

Trabzonspor has signed three players before the transfer deadline day, including Greek international Avraam Papadopoulos and Ghana starlet Abdul-Majeed Waris.

Already the busiest Turkish team during the off-season, Trabzonspor Monday night improved their squad by signing three more players, 

Spartak Moscow's Waris and Guingamp's Moustapha Yatabare have been added to provide depth to Trabzonspor's attacking line, which is currently led by Oscar Cardozo.

Terim named veteran Fenerbahce captain Emre Belozoglu and in-form Bayer Leverkusen star Hakan Calhanoglu in the squad.
One notable absentee is Fenerbahce goalkeeper Volkan Demirel, who recently received a three-match ban and $8,000 fine over his verbal attack against Galatasaray midfielder Felipe Melo in the aftermath of a derby game between the two archrivals.
Demirel, who was involved in an incident with Melo during the game, told Fenerbahce club channel: "[The] city council should poison stray dogs otherwise I'll do it myself."

The squad is as follows:
Onur Kivrak (Trabzonspor), Volkan Babacan (Istanbul Basaksehir), Mert Gunok, Gokhan Gonul, Caner Erkin, Emre Belozoglu, Mehmet Topal (Fenerbahce), Tarik Camdal (Eskisehirspor), Omer Toprak, Hakan Calhanoglu (Bayer 04 Leverkusen), Semih Kaya, Hakan Balta, Selcuk Inan, Burak Yilmaz, Olcan Adin (Galatasaray), Ersan Adem Gulum, Ismail Koybasi, Oguzhan Ozyakup, Olcay Sahan, Mustafa Pektemek (Besiktas), Ozan Tufan (Bursaspor), Arda Turan (Atletico Madrid), Ahmet Ilhan Ozek (Kardemir Karabukspor), Mevlut Erdinc (AS Saint-Etienne).

Nigeria striker Emmanuel Emenike, Senegal forward Moussa Sow and Cameroon's Pierre Webo on the scoresheet.
Karabukspor twice got back on level terms through Dominick Kumbela and a Michal Kadlec own goal but eventually left with nothing to show for its efforts.

Besiktas bounced back from narrowly missing out on a place in the UEFA Champions League group stage when going down 1-0 to Arsenal by beating Mersin by the same scoreline, with Cenk Tosun hitting the back of the net just before the break.
Trabzonspor had to settle for a goalless draw at Erciyesspor, while Sivasspor suffered an early setback when losing 2-1 at home to Gaziantepspor, with Muhammet Demir bagging a brace after John Utaka had put the host ahead.
Eskisehirspor was another team to come from behind and claim victory when edging out Konyaspor, with Hurriyet Gucer equalising Gabriel Torje's early strike before Erkan Zengin netted the winner from the penalty spot on 76 minutes.
Istanbul Buyuksehir held on for a 1-1 draw against Kasimpasa after having Rajko Rotman sent off. 
Rizespor and Genclerbirligi also shared the spoils after Umit Korkmaz netted for the host from Guido Kocer's opener, while Akhisar Belediye won 2-1 at Balikesirspor thanks to goals from Saidi Ntibazonkiza and Mehmet Akyuz.

Besiktas must score goal or goals against Arsenal !



It is must win for Arsenal  but  a draw with away goal or  goals, will be good for Besiktas...

That's why it's very important  to Besiktas score goal first at the Emirates stadium tonight.

While Arsenal having problems on and of the pitch, Besiktas could well advance if they play as a team.


 Arsenal missing Ramsey, plus injuries is huge plus for Besiktas...

Atiba Hutchinson playing tonight is huge for Besiktas.....

If Atiba connects with Demba BA  , Ba could score goals...

Plus, Olcay and Oguzhan should  have very good match at the midfield.

Necip is also ready to take on the pitch tonight...

If Besiktas defense and Besiktas keeper Toga Zengin plays flawless, Besiktas will advance .

The pressure  is on Arsenal....

Winner will collect 8.6 Million Euro.

Like Besiktas coach Bilic said , Besiktas is not afraid of Arsenal tonight !

So, Besiktas players has to show that tonight at Emirates stadium ...

It could well be another miracle match for Besiktas in London, England !
