Match Day: Fenerbahce vs. Denizlispor

Match Day: Fenerbahce vs. Denizlispor
By Nathan L. Redd

The Yellow Canaries are in southwestern Turkiye today to take on the Denizlispor Roosters in a clash of top five Turkcell Super Lig teams. While Fenerbahce is looking to cut into the lead of Sivasspor and Galatasaray, Denizlispor is off to a fantastic start in the 2007-2008 season. After only three wins in their first ten games, the Roosters have now won three in a row to climb within three points of fourth-place Besiktas. A win today would also pull Denizli within one point of Super Lig champions Fenerbahce. Denizlispor has never finished better than fifth in the Turkcell Super Lig which they did twice, in 2002 and 2004.

Fenerbahce begins a difficult campaign of tough games ahead. After today's match against Denizli, they'll take on rivals Galatasaray next weekend followed by a UEFA Champions League match against CSKA Moscow a few days later in Kadikoy.

Fenerbahce and Denizlispor kickoff at 19:00 (12 Noon EST in the U.S.) from Denizli Ataturk Stadium. The game is available on a pay-per-view basis at
