Sivasspor - Fenerbahce Match Preview

Sivasspor - Fenerbahce Match Preview
By Ozgur R. Nazilli

On the eve of very exciting developments for Fenerbahce Worldwide, Fenerbahce is also preparing for a very important day. Today is the day that Sivasspor, the unbeaten leaders of Turkcell Super Lig faces the real leaders: Fenerbahce.

The game has been hyped up a great deal during the week by the Turkish media, with the effects reaching as far as England, as exemplified by an article by the Guardian about Sivasspor. The expectation is high, and stakes are higher. Even though it is only the 20th week of the season, a defeat here, no matter how unlikely it is, would set back Fenerbahce 5 points, boost Sivaspor's confidence by continuing their undefeated state even in the face of Fener, and renew the determinations of both Besiktas and Galatasaray. However, being the all-star-like team they are, Fenerbahce players have more than enough talent between themselves to end the unbeaten run of Sivasspor, and they will be looking to prove this today.

Interestingly enough, Sivasspor is the team that conceded the least amount of goals this season, and Fenerbahce is the team with the most goals scored. There certainly isn't a lack of scoring ability for Fenerbahce lately, with the team scoring 15 goals in the last two games. However, Sivas has only conceded 3 goals in their home ground this season, So the score is anyone's guess at the moment, with both sides' fans favouring their teams.

Sivasspor has yet to win a match in the 6 meetings they have had with Fenerbahce, and Zico and his students will be looking to build on this record. Sivas is definitely in a position that deserves the applause they are getting, and considering the huge gap between the budgets of the teams like Sivasspor compared to the likes of the Istanbulian big 3, Bulent Uygun and his team are on their way to making history. However, no matter how strong they appear to be, it is not very credible for an Anatolian team to win the championship, unfortunately. The word on the street is that, as usual, Besiktas, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce fans want their teams to come out on top, however if anyone is to win the title other than their own team, the consensus is that it should be Sivas.

No matter who wins, the football fans will watch some performances that are worthy of the top spot today. We as Fenerbahce Worldwide hope first and foremost that there will be no injuries in the game. Good luck to both teams, let the best team win!
