Elazigspor vs Pendikspor by Foxserkan

Elazigspor recorded their 5th consecutive defeat in Turkey Super League and after the last defeat by Genclerbirligi at home Elazigspor sacked Sollied and brought inexperienced head coach Okan Buruk. However Okan Buruk will not be at the bench in this match. Forwarders Youssouf Hadji (3 matches), Deniz Yilmaz (5 matches 2 goals), Onur Ayik (1 match 1 goal), midfielders Serdar Ozkan (8 matches 1 goal), Tidiane Sane (10 matches 3 goals) are injured. In the previous round Elazigspor managed to defeat Ankara Demirspor (2-0) and qualified to this round. The team were trained by goal keeper coach Mehmet Talas who has signed to the club just a day ago exactly like Okan Buruk the new head coach.


It is interesting that Pendikspor are playing against Elazigspor just like last season that they eliminated them in the match played in Istanbul (3-2). Pendikspor were not taken serious as they were from non-league and Elazigspor were punished and had to say good by to the cup. Pendikspor are popular in this cup as they made very interesting surprises in Turkish Cup history. It is still remembered that they once eliminated Fenerbahce which is still a joke that Galatasaray fans make fun of Fenerbahce. Pendikspor are doing very well in their own league and they are undefeated for 7 matches. They collected 13 points out of last 5 league matches as well. Pendikspor are such a team who have very important players in their squad. There are such players who are above the standards of their league. Some of these players are:- Midfielder Ilhan Sahin (9 matches 3 goals (he played in Besiktas, Istanbul BB once)), Caner Erdogan (9 matches 2 goals), forwarders Onder Cengel (he once played in Grasshopper, Elazigspor, Gaziantepspor etc...) and Arif Coban (3 matches 3 goals)


I can simply say that Elazigspor are in such a condition that they will not play any system of any head coach as Okan Buruk has just joined and will not even be at the bench. They made only one training with Mehmet Talas who has signed at the same time with Okan Buruk and he is a goal keeper trainer not a real coach. I have no idea if it is in their DNA or in their blood but Pendikspor managed to take attention by doing interesting things in the past in this tournament. Just like season they managed to defeat Elazigspor 3-2 and recorded an other shocking result like they once did against Fenerbahce. I have no doubt that they will want to repeat the same thing and be on Turkish news tonight. The players are extra motivated however Elazigspor are in such a condition with black clouds on top of them and they are going to play an important match on away against Trabzonspor in the following Turkey Super League match.
