Super Saturday in the Turkish Super Lig ! #STSL


13th week in the #STSL will take a start with two important matches on Saturday ! Basaksehir vs Antalya and Fenerbahce vs Besiktas !

First place #Basaksehir will host Antalya in a early game before the derby match ! Fenerbahce vs Besiktas match will be after that match !

It's very crucial two matches on Saturday ..,

Fenerbahce and Antalya are the most form teams in the last six matches ! While Fenerbahce won their last five matches ,Basaksehir won four.

Most formed team Fenerbahce which has won its last eight games, will host historic rival Besiktas on  Dec. 3 looking to maintain an 11-year undefeated record in derby games.

Besiktas, meanwhile, is out to extend its unbeaten run in three competitions – Turkish Super League, Champions League and the Turkish Cup. 

But Fenerbahce  fans are entertaining great expectations from Moussa Sow, its prolific Senegalese striker who scored a hat-trick against  Rizespor last week, pacing his side to a 5-1 win.

Sow, who returned to the Istanbul side last summer following one year away with the United Arab Emirates’ al-Ahli, has scored seven goals against Besiktas  in eight appearances. 

Fenerbahce stores now sell Sow jerseys with his name and number written upside-down in honor of recent bicycle-kick goals against Rize and Manchester United .

Sow has scored 65 goals for Fenerbahce in 160 games, while assisting on 28 others. 

Fener coach Dick Advocaat, who has received great praise in the Turkish media for the recent performance of the team following a bad start, also has confidence in his countryman Robin van Persie. The Dutch international, who scored in a derby against Galatasaray on Nov. 20 “is a very important player,” Advocaat said, adding that he should return to the national team. 

Besiktas visits Fenerbahce at Sukru Saracoglu  two points behind leader Basaksehir, another Istanbul team which it drew 1-1 last week, and four points ahead of third-place Fenerbahce

The Black and Whites will be lucky to have Ricardo Quaresma on the pitch after the Portuguese midfielder escaped a booking and suspension in the Basaksehir game in the dying minutes. 

Besiktas coach Senol Gunes said after the game on Nov. 26 that he and his side were tired. The visitors, which engineered a historic comeback from three goals down against Benfica on Nov. 23 before appearing in the Turkey Cup on Nov. 29, will fly to Ukraine to meet Dynamo Kyiv to guarantee a qualification spot in the Champions League. 

In the last 52 games of between the rivals, Fener have won 19, one more than Beşiktaş. It has also won 14 out of 35 games at the Sukru Saracoglu against Besiktas nine wins.

Besiktas's last away victory in the fixture was on April 17, 2005, a 4-3 game for the ages when the 10-men Eagles scored the winner after seeing goalkeeper Oscar Cordoba sent off.

So , Saturday 's results may just change the top team in the #STSL ! #Galatasaray plays on Sunday while #Trabzon waits until Monday.
