Here are the Fortis Turkish Cup games! This Cup is being more interesting every year. Because Turkish FA decided to get sponsorship for Turkish Cup, so clubs started take it more seriously in order to create financial source. Well, here are the matches that I will talk about:
Ankaragücü – Fenerbahçe :
This season is the worst season of last ten years for home team. At the weekend, although they have played well, they lost to Kayserispor at home. They conceded three funny goals. Supporters were so angry of team and the executives during the match. This match was first for new trainer. I don’t think that they will give more importance cup matches than league matches. Turkish League is absolutely first priority.
After defeating Bursaspor with a score of 5-2, Fenerbahçe Coach Luis Aragones took a deep breath. In recent years, Fenerbahçe haven’t won any Turkish Cup. This Cup is one of their goals this year. Deivid have turned into fields with last minute goal in last match. Some of the players can be rested by Coach Luis Aragones; but this isn’t a problem to defeat weak opponent.
So my pick is Fenerbahçe with 1,55 on Expekt.
Ankaraspor is playing great this year. They are sitting on the third position on the league. Last three matches showed taht this is not about chance or something else. Their offence line including Neca, Murat Tosun, De Nigris and Mehmet Cakir is so dangerous. Their field is artificial grass. So it may be problem for away team.
After defeating Olympiakos in UEFA Cup, Galatasaray was defeated by Eskişehirspor on the road. Only Souleyman Youla (aka road-runner) destroyed Galatasaray defence on sunday night. Now morale is so low in the team. And there are so many Youlas in Ankaraspor. Galatasaray can have trouble in away trip.
So my pick is Ankaraspor not to lose with 1,84 on Bwin.
