Wednesday, starting at 18:45, the Galatasaray – Akhisarspor match will be played in the final of the Turkish Cup, the 2018-2019 edition.
Akhisarspor won 3 of the last 5 direct disputes with Galatasaray, and the most recent was “played” by Cimbom, 1-0 on the field, in the Championship of Turkey.
Galatasaray is in pole position for a new championship title in Turkey, but can not neglect that he has reached the Cup final. The team prepared by Fatih Terim has to overtake this complex with Akhisarspor, which has given him some painful defeats. Galatasaray was eliminated by Akhisar in the semi-finals of the previous Cup, lost the Turkish Supercup after extra time and was defeated in the championship, scoring 0-3 away.
Akhisarspor returns to the final of the Turkish Cup after winning the trophy last season, in a duel with Fenerbahce, score 3-2. Cem Kavcak’s formation proves to be a difficult opponent for Turkey’s “grandees” and is ready for a new, resounding success. Akhisarspor has won two trophies in the last year, but he will start with a second chance against Galatasaray on Sivasspor’s field.
It is interesting to see how Fatih will tackle this confrontation, because this week will also contest the “final” of the championship with Basaksehir. Even if Galatasaray gets the trophy in the Cup, it will make it to a minimal difference.
