Fenerbahce Arrives in Manisa

Fenerbahce Arrives in Manisa
By Nathan L. Redd

Fenerbahce arrived in Manisa on Friday, one day ahead of the Super Lig clash vs. Manisaspor. Fenerbahce is looking to continue its momentum from last weekend's Super Lig win over Ankaragucu and their UEFA Champions League draw in Moscow this week. Fener currently sits in sixth place in the Turkcell Super Lig with twelve points. They are, however, only two points back of third-place Besiktas, who lost to rivals Galatasaray last weekend.

Manisaspor sits in 12th place with only eight points after seven games played. They dropped a 4-1 decision to Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediyespor last weekend. Their last win in the league came three weeks ago.

Fenerbahce and Manisaspor kick off at 20:00 (1 PM EST in the U.S.) from Manisa on Saturday. For those outside of Turkiye, the game is available via pay-per-view at for $9.95.
