WEEK 26 REVIEW.....
ANKARA TEAMS COULD NOT CHANGE THE DIRECTION!...
Turkcell Super League has held three games to clash Istanbul and Ankara teams, where the Istanbul sides won all three.
After a grueling period of 134 days, Galatasaray remembered to get maximum points from an away game, defeating Ankaragücü 2-1 on Sunday's Turkcell Super League game.In the other game bringing together two teams from Istanbul and Ankara, the result was the same when Fenerbahce has beaten Ankaraspor 2-1.
On Monday,Both Trabzonspor and Besiktas came away with wins in the final two matches of round 26 of the Turkish Super League.Besiktas had the easier time of it, beating Genclerbirligi two zero in their game Monday night. The win by the Black and White Eagles moves them back into second spot on the ladder.Trabzonspor however was made to fight all the way against relegation haunted Erciyesspor, which has been playing a better brand of football since the winter mid season break and has struggled off the bottom of the table.Trabzon keeper Tolga Zengin was considered by many to be the man of the match, having been forced to repel numerous Erciyesspor attacks in the last line of defence.
Sivasspor climbed up to the sixth place after a 3-2 win against hard nut Kayserispor. A double by Israelite Pini Balili and one from Turkish national Mehmet Yıldız brought Sivas the three points. Vestel Manisaspor suffered the first minute goal from Ali Zitouni of Antalyaspor to be defeated 1-0. Bursaspor also won three points against Konyaspor with the same result. Gaziantepspor enjoyed a 2-1 away win at the hands of Sakaryaspor, who sits at the rock bottom.
