The Cinderella team of Turkey, Sivasspor won their home match against Eskisehirspor who was desperate for points, with only one goal and stayed at top with 45 points all along at the end of the week 21nth. Sivasspor only goal came in the seventh minute by Frenchman Yannick Kamanan.

Sivasspor's win became more important as three title contenders suffered heavy defeats on Saturday, and Sunday.

Unlike last year, Sivasspor young rookie coach Bulent Uygun who does not have a experience in coaching said "We want to be the champions,""The beautiful people of Anatolia deserve beautiful things. They can do anything with limited resources and Sivasspor shows that."

Sivasspor has been unbeaten in the last 10 games since Nov. 9, last year.
If Sivasspor manages to defeat Fenerbahce in next weekend’s game, the gap will open up more on top.

Until now, Sivasspor has been the underdog of winning the Turkcell Super League, but this weekend it proved to be a main contender.

Also on Sunday in the early match Hacettepe beat Ankaraspor 3- 1, in Ankara.


Who would thought Galatasaray would be beating by last place team Kocaelispor In Istanbul with five horror goals?....
Well ,that is what happened !............

Galatasaray was beaten by Kocaelispor at home 2-5 in the closing game of the week.

The game turned out the be a nightmare for Galatasaray after Milan Baros missed the penalty, the only chance to have a draw at the end of the game, which led to a counter-attack ending with another score for the guest team.

The Kocaelispor hero was Taner Gulleri who blasted four of his team's five goals with Murat Hacioglu the other scorer.

Galatasaray had taken the lead in the game through Mehmet Topal on 15 minutes with Cassio Lincoln the other scorer for Galatasaray.

After the match, Galatasaray team officials had a emergency meeting and they said , "who ever is responsible for this disaster will be punished"

Most likely, coach Sikibe will be sacked on Monday, in my opinion..........

This was the worst defeat for Galatasaray in Ali Samiyen stadium in a long time...
