Week 25: REVIEW

After Fener won in Bursa , this was very important match for Besiktas. The opponent Erciyesspor was also desperate for point and points. The match played with no fans in the stadium because of banned by Turkish soccer federation. Besiktas's only goal scored in 73nth minute by Nobre Mert.with a win the gap between Besiktas and Fener stayed at 6 points. That's why we just can't say clearly ,Fenerbahce will win the leagues top spot yet. Next nine weeks will be rough ride for Fenerbahce and Besiktas. I don't see Galatasaray as a contender for the top spot anymore. The lost of points in Konya,cost Galatasaray,in my opinion.
After His assistant coach punched the referee during the yesterday's match, we have herd Ersun Yanal will call a quits with Vestel Manispor. Incident was disaster for Turkish soccer in general and Vestel Manisspor.
Fenerbahce have opened up a nine-point gap at the top of the Turkish Super League with a 4-0 thrashing of Bursaspor away from home.With Galatasaray held to a 2-2 draw by Konyaspor on Friday evening , Fener took full advantage as Alex De Souza (2), Mateja Kezman and Deniz Baris all found the net in the second half.At the other end of the table, there were disturbing scenes as relegation-threatened Manisaspor hosted basement club Sakaryaspor.The game was abandoned after 37 minutes as the players effectively hounded the referee off the field in reaction to a booking. The score was 0-0 at the time, but the authorities seem certain to take action over the incident.Kayserispor missed the chance to move level on points with third-placed Besiktas as they squandered a 3-0 first-half lead to draw 4-4 with lowly Antalyaspor in a thrilling encounter.Kayserispor seemed to be cruising as goals from Gokhan Unal and Mehmet Topuz (2) fired them into a 3-0 lead after half an hour.However, Coskun Birdal quickly got a goal back for the visitors before the break.Then, three goals in 12 minutes turned the game on its head as Birdal, Ali Bilgan and Birdal again struck to make it 4-3 Antalyaspor, leaving the hosts to rely on Unal's 89th-minute equaliser to get anything at all from the game.Kayserispor at least avoided dropping a place in the table as fifth-placed Genclerbirligi went down 3-2 against 10-man Denizlispor.Goals from Serhat Gulpinar and Roman Kratochvil (2) did the trick for the hosts as they survived the 80th-minute dismissal of Fatih Egedik.Engin Baytar and Mehmet Cakir got the goals for Genclerbirligi.Ankaraspor beat Sivasspor 2-1 as the visitors had Servet Cetin sent off, Gaziantepspor edged out Caykur Rizespor 1-0 and Ankaragucu were 1-0 winners at Trabzonspor.
A late strike by substitute Cedric Sabin denied Galatasaray the opportunity to close the gap on leaders Fenerbahce in the Turkish Turkcell Super League after being held to a 2-2 draw at Konyaspor.
With the leaders due to travel to Bursaspor on Saturday, the defending champions had an ideal opportunity to close the gap to just four points, but Sabin had the final say for the hosts.
Earlier, his team-mate Joao Neca had put the home team ahead after just eight minutes, but the visitors hit back two minutes later through Sasa Ilic (10).Hasan Kabze (51) then handed the lead to the visitors shortly after half time, but just when they looked to have wrapped up the game, Sabin (87) gave the home crowd something to celebrate.
