The title chase in Turkey, goes on after Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor won their matches in the 31th weekend.

There are three more matches, to be played....

Even though Trabzonspor wins all their last three matches, they have to wait for Fenerbhace to lose points in the coming weekends.

They are, both at 73 points ....

But, Fenerbahce is better in the head to head competition ....

Both of the team were at home last weekend as they won their match..

Fenerbahce passed Istanbul Buyuksehir with no resisting from Buyuksehir as they beat them with two first half goals!

Miroslav Stoch ,score the first goal in the second minute of the match and Alex De Souza scored the second goal in the closing minutes of the first half,,,,

Top scorer in the Turkish Super League, Alez De Souza, scored his second 22th goal in this match..

On the other hand, the other tittle chaser, Trabzponspor , who was complaining last weekend, about the referee's, handed, very critical call in favored of them!

Trabzonspor beat, 10-man Gazinatep, at home, with three first half, goals....

In the 22th minute of the match, Cuneyt Cakir who is FIFA batch referee, blew it and gave PK , to Trabzonspor and gave a red card to Gaziantep defender Dany!

Burak Yilmaz, took the penalty kick and scored the first goal in the match,,,,,,

Later, Polish player Pawel Brozek scored the second goal with nice header goal and Burak Yilmaz scored his second and Trabzonspor third goal...

We could say, Trabzonspor after leading this league by nine points at the half, gave the driver's seat to Fenerbahce!

To get that seat, first, they have to win their all remaining matches and pray, one of the Fenerbahce opponents ,steel point or points from Fenebshce....

Both of the team will play their 32th weekend matches on Sunday at the same game time...

Both of them, will be play in the away matches....

Fener will visit Karabuk while Trabzon will travel to Izmir to face ,Buca....

On the paper, Fenerbahce's match is more harder but than against we should not forget, what Fenerbahce gone through in Izmir against Bucaspor!

The tittle chase, will go on in Turkey and it will be neck and neck on race!

See you next time...
