Besiktas would be aiming to get step closer to title.
Besiktas would be aiming to get one step closer to Super League title as it would be meeting with struggling Ankaragucu at 35th week with 4 point advantage and game in hand from Fenerbahce.
Besiktas would be coming with strong motivation for the game due to the condition but there would be expected to be having tough game as Ankaragucu is currently fighting for survival and are showing some improvement in its performance compare to previous week with giving its all to stay at the league. In addition with Cenk Tosun and still injured Vincent Aboubakar absences it would be having attackers issue even through Cyle Larin did provide some good performance being single attacker in some game and hence would be expected to take that role in successful manner. Therefore, with playing at home Besiktas and being focussed for title it could be seen them as favourites but Ankaragucu would give their best performance.
Besiktas would be looking once again for high possession but it needs to show confident attacking game too for win.
Covid19 still spreads among players
With 60,000+ daily cases been reported in Turkey on past days, this Covid19 virus continues to be having negative impact to Turkish football and shows how careful players and clubs need to be careful as we enter to crucial weeks.
Talking about medically, with players due of age and physical condition does go through recovery of Covid19 without much issues and it is quesitonable if players order for vaccination should be priorty or not, but with positive cases due of possible spread of virus players would need to be self-isolated which would mean leaving their side alone in such crucial weeks. This blog does state several times that it is hard to control spread virus, but some important precautions can be taken by clubs and players if their dont want to be infected. When league resumed last summer number of effectiveness to football been low as players did took this serious, now they are seem to be more relaxed.
We are entering to last 8 weeks as this virus continues to be issue and right now clubs would need to be precautions with this issue without doubt.
Galatasaray would show reaction to Mustafa Cengiz after Goztepe game.
Aftermath of criticism from Galatasaray CEO Mustafa Cengiz regarding of players of not getting serious games continues to be having heated issue as player did consider to boycott training session even.
Decision however which been made is to continue with training sessions due of important period we having in the league and provide their rightful reaction towards such words following Super League 35th week game against Goztepe. This crises meanwhile does show strong division between administrative part or more precise CEO who provided such criticism among players which did exist even with Younes Belhanda termination of contract. Right now there is division and misunderstanding among administration and footballers which been created out of nowhere and its right for players to show such reaction.
It would be interesting to see how Fatih Terim and players would respond to this developments.
