The Turkish Super Lig sets to host a mouthwatering clash for the top of the table as Fenerbahce travels to Trabzonspor. The match schedules for Sunday at the Medical Park Arena, with kickoff at 7 pm.
After eight rounds of play, both teams are tied for first place, with just one point separating them. After losing both at home and away last season, the home team will try to get one over on the visiting team.
First, Trabzonspor has started their search for a place in the Europa League well and is in the league’s top division.
The hosts recorded a crucial win when they beat a tenacious Kayserispor side 2-1 when they competed at Kadir Has Stadium.
After the first half, Emrah Bassan was charged with compensating Anastasios Bakasetas‘s opener. This is because Anastasios Bakasetas scored his second matchday from the penalty spot after an hour to get their third season defeat.
On the other hand, Fenerbahçe continued their quest to overthrow reigning champions Besiktas last time with a 2-1 win over Kasimpasa.
After losing Olympiacos in the Europa League, where Giorgos Masouras played an inspiring performance when he scored a brace in the second half, the Yellow Canaries needed a morale booster.
Since losing at Basaksehir 2-0 in August, Fenerbahce has won each of their last three league games, beating Giresunspor, Hatayspor, and Kasimpasa in a row.
