Fenerbahce vs Galatasaray by Foxserkan

The whole sports media in Turkey are busy with this match. They are writing speaking of how this match will result and who will be the Turkish Champion of 2011-2012. Fenerbahce must win to be winner of the season and a draw is enough for visitors to lift the trophy.


Fenerbahce is completing a tumultuous season. The president Aziz Yildirim is in prison since 3th of July due to the indictment on the match-fixing. Football lovers excepted Fenerbahce to be relegated by Turkish Football Federation and this prospect demoralized the players very much. Such high class players like Lugano, Emenike, Niang and Santos were sold and transferred to such clubs like PSG, Arsenal and CSKA. The long term injuries put Aykut Kocaman (Fenerbahce’s coach) in to hard conditions. The managers who had to take over Fenerbahce in the absence of the president, supported the club with all of their cool-headed behaviors. Finally, Fenerbahce is 1 step close to the Turkish League Championship. Aykut Kocaman was another hero in this difficult period. He made some mistakes in some matches but he had the capacity in motivating his players. Volkan the goal keeper, Gokhan Gonul and Alex played in many sacrificing matches. Yobo in defense and new transfer Ziegler made huge contribution to team’s performance. In the mid season Saw was transferred from Lile with great expectations who scored 8 goals in 13 matches. But his injury was disappointment as he is the most important striker and trump for big rivals. But Stoch exists and he is one of the most dangerous man in offense with his high speed of carrying the ball. It is true that Galatasaaray should measure this player.


Galatasaray was a wreckage when Fatih Terim signed as the new coach. But he had the chance of working and studying with the new management as Galatasaray had a new president Unal Aysal who is an intelligent business man. Support from the new management helped Fatih Terim to build the football team from top to bottom. Muslera, Uruguay national goal keeper was mounted and the bleeding wound, the position which Galatasaray suffered a lot was healed. Following transfer was Ujfalusi from Atletico Madrid and he complied to team early in the season. The midfield was reinforced by two important players Selcuk Inan and Felipe Melo the Brazilian national. I can not ignore how these players were efficient in the current success of Galatasary. Youngsters Emre Colak and Semih Kaya were encouraged by Terim and in the end Galatasaray became the most running and pressing team of the league. Necati Ates the veteran striker was brought in the middle of season and his goals contributed to team’s record. I was almost forgetting Eboue and Hakan Balta as these were other top characters in the cast.


This first derby was played in 1909 and repeated 359 times since that year. Fenerbahce won 136 Galatasaray 113 and they drew 113 times. Fenerbahce scored 505 and Galatasaray hit the nets 454 times. Match will be under control of the successful referee Cuneyt Cakır who also was assigned to Barcelona-Chelsea CHL semi final a few weeks ago. Make 2 different bets in order to insure.
