Match-Day 26: Gaziantep vs Fenerbahce

Gaziantepspor host the Yellow-Canaries on the 26th fixture of this season's Spor Toto Super Lig; both teams will be looking to take advantage of their current good form and grab the crucial 3 points on offer...

Preview

Fenerbahce gear up to face a tough away task at Gaziantep tonight. Although the game is usually seen as a tough encounter, Fenerbahce have won the past 6 meetings and with Galatasaray dropping points at home to Kayserispor, a win would put Fenerbahce a massive 11 points ahead of our arch-rivals.

Gaziantep's forward Cenk Tosun is without doubt the star man of the side and poses the biggest threat to the Fenerbahce defence. Cenk's impressive 10 goals and 6 assists this season has allowed Gaziantep to climb out of the relegation zone and back into the mid-section of the table. Fenerbahce striker and fan favourite Moussa Sow also has a point to prove and a chance to repay back the Fener supporters with a goal tonight for cheering him on, despite an unlucky performance last week against Kayseri Erciyesspor.

This will be the 56th head-to-head  Super Lig clash between Fenerbahce and Gaziantepspor; where Fener have accumulated 36 wins, Gaziantep 11 and the remaining 8 games ended in a draw.

The last time Fenerbahce faced Gaziantepspor resulted in a 3-1 win the for the Canaries; Emenike (2) and Moussa Sow bagging the goals, and young stars Alper and Salih getting the assists.
