Fenerbahçe, who lost all the hopes in the Super League, are going to host Trabzonspor at home in the second leg of the semi-finals of Turkish Cup.
The home team started the season with the aim of putting an end to their long wait for the title; however, things went downhill and now they are placed 7th in the league table. It is almost impossible for them to have a place in the top 4 considering that there are only 7 rounds remaining. Therefore, the only way for them to qualify for the Europa League is to win the Turkish Cup but they have to defeat Trabzonspor first.
Trabzonspor, on the other hand, have had a superb campaign so far. Currently, they are occupying the top place in the Super League but they got a terrible news from UEFA only a week ago. It was recently announced that Trabzonspor was banned from any UEFA tournament at least for one year. However, it seems like they were not affected much by this announcement as they just demolished Göztepe on the road although one of their players was sent off only in the 41st minute.
Those who follow Turkish football knows that Fenerbahçe, however bad they are playing, always find a way to beat Trabzonspor. In fact, they are undefeated in their last 23 home matches against their opponent in all competitions. Moreover, winning the Turkish Cup seems like the only way to grab the ticket to Europe. Therefore, I believe that Fenerbahçe will win this match and advance to the final round. You can also feel the excitement of Turkish Cup if you register for the best betting software. Good luck!
