Much To Decide in Turkcell Super Lig This Weekend

Although the champions have been decided, this weekend offers many questions yet to be answered in the Turkcell Super Lig. With relegation and UEFA Champions League spots still left to be claimed, there is also a little game known globally as "The World's Biggest Derby." Fenerbahce is playing for pride, and Galatasaray is playing for the coveted #2 spot in the Turkcell Super Lig. At the opposite end of the table, Erciyesspor and Rizespor are fighting for their Super Lig lives, as relegation is hanging over them like a dark cloud headed into week #33.

While Fenerbahce and Galatasaray are duking it out at Ali Sami Yen on Saturday, Besiktas will be fighting to keep that second spot in the league when they face Ankaraspor. Also on Saturday, relegation-doomed Sakaryaspor will travel to face Genclerbirligi.

Sunday will be the battle to avoid relegation as Erciyesspor, currently sitting second from the bottom, desperately needs a win and some help as they host Antalyaspor. Also desperate to avoid the drop is Caykur Rizespor, who face a difficult game with Konyaspor in Rize. The Tea Men currently sit in 16th place in the TSL.

Lots of questions heading into the second-to-last weekend, but we'll have many answers by Sunday evening.
