Fenerbahce Arrives in Gaziantep
Fenerbahce arrived in Gaziantep Thursday afternoon, one day ahead of their crucial Turkcell Super Lig matchup vs. Gaziantepspor. After three consecutive winless games, Fenerbahce desperately needs three points on Friday to keep distance between themselves and second-place Besiktas at the top of the standings.
Gaziantepspor, on the other hand, is still trying to keep distance between themselves and the relegation zone. They currently sit in 13th place with 35 points and appear to be safe, but the middle of the Turkcell Super Lig has very little spacing between each team. Gaziantepspor is also under the added pressure of being the only Super Lig team now from the Southeastern Turkiye area. The Turkish Futbol Federation wants to make sure they are not dropping down and leaving the region without a Super Lig team.
Kickoff for Friday's game is at 20:00 (1 PM EST in the U.S.) from Kamil Ocak Stadium in Gaziantep.
