On Thursday, starting with 17:45, the match Fenerbahce – Kasimpasa will be played, within the eighth round of the Turkish Cup. Fenerbahce has a fantastic record with Kasimpasa, being undefeated in 15 of the last 16 direct matches, scoring 13 victories in this interval.
With 4 consecutive victories in the Super League, Fenerbahce wants to continue this trend in the Turkish Cup as well. In the domestic championship, the “yellow canaries” have recovered important points lately, managing to equal the leader Besiktas (both with 35 points each). Erol Bulut’s group comes after a show of strength with the newly promoted Erzurum, 3-0 away, the 7th external success of this season. In the previous rounds of the Cup, Fenerbahce passed the modest Sivas Belediyespor (4-0) and Karacabey Belediyespor (1-0), both meetings being scheduled on “Sukru Saracoglu”.
Kasimpasa also comes after an important result in the Super League, a 2-1 on the field of Alanyaspor, the former leader of the championship. Fuat Capa’s students have 22 points in the first 17 stages, currently ranking 13th, 13 lengths from the top two, Besiktas and Fenerbahce. In the away matches, Kasimpasa has a record of two victories, two draws and 5 defeats, at the goal average 10-16. In the first rounds of the Turkish Cup, the guests defeated 24 Erzincanspor (3-0) and Muglaspor (5-0), teams from the lower leagues.
Fenerbahce aims for an easy qualification, Kasimpasa does not barricade himself in defense and plays openly, so we expect goals.
