Fortis Türkiye Cup Match Day: Fener vs. Alanyaspor

Fortis Türkiye Cup Match Day: Fener vs. Alanyaspor
By Nathan L. Redd

Fenerbahçe is on the Mediterranean coast of Türkiye Wednesday, as they return to the pitch for their next Fortis Türkiye Cup match against Alanyaspor. Kickoff is scheduled for 13:30 (6:30 AM EST in the U.S.). With the game in Alanya, Fenerbahçe will have a chance to enjoy the mild weather of Türkiye's southern coast before traveling to Sivas this weekend for their huge clash. Temperatures are expected to be around 18 degrees at kickoff in Alanya.

Alanyaspor will be looking to pull off what would likely be one of the biggest upsets in Fortis Türkiye Cup history. Alanyaspor plays in Iddaa League B Group 2 and currently sits fourth in the standings with 27 points through 17 games. Iddaa League B is the third division of Turk futbol.

Alanyaspor Manager Muharrem Uğur knows it will take the game of a lifetime from his players to claim any points against the Turk champions. The green and orange side will host the Turk giants at their home stadium, Milli Egemenlik Stadium, but with a capacity of only 2,500, it will hardly be an intimidating venue. As always with Fenerbahçe, there is a large number of Fenerli's expected to be in attendance.

Fenerbahçe is coming off a huge 5-0 win over Gaziantepspor over the weekend, and they hope to take the momentum from a win in Alanya into their huge matchup this weekend. Fener travels to Sivas in northern Türkiye this weekend to play the league leaders Sivasspor in what will be one of the biggest matches of the season thus far. Fener star Alex de Souza returned to the lineup last weekend and provided a much-needed offensive spark to the Yellow Canaries. The win showed that a healthy Fener side is as dangerous as any in Europe.

Fenerbahçe and Alanyaspor kickoff at 13:30 in Alanya, Türkiye on Wednesday. Check back with Fenerbahce Worldwide for a full recap on photos after the match.

It seems I come to the right place, because I found something I like, and sometimes things are really looking for opportunities to take!
