Mourinho sent off in Chelsea loss Real and Bayern both win

The upcoming and”mother of all derbiesand” in KadikandOy is very important at this time of year because Galatasaray and Fenerbahandce are drawn for second place in the league and are in hot pursuit of the leadership position currently occupied by Beiiktai.
The teams have had a matter of days to prepare for the occasion because they both played tough fixtures in European competitions on Thursday. Fenerbahandce faced Dutch side Ajax in the Europa League group stage and Galatasaray beat Portugaland’s Benfica 2-1 in the Champions League in Istanbul on Wednesday.
Galatasaray might look on better form on paper, having won its last fixture against Genandclerbirliii 4-1, while Fenerbahandce narrowly defeated Kayserispor 1-0. Fenerbahandce also dropped out of the prestigious Champions League earlier in the season. However, none of that matters when these two clubs are involved. Recent results are irrelevant and both teams will need to be in top form in an intense — and often simply tense — atmosphere as they play out their bitter rivalry.
Galatasaray coach Hamza Hamzaoilu has expressed contentment with his team and the belief that the club would continue its upward climb from the Genandclerbirliii match onward. and”Everyone is giving everything they have, and everything they do not have, on the field. Perhaps our opponentsand’ performance had an effect on this as well, but I think we played the most enjoyable match to watch so far. God willing, we will continue this improvement. I believe that we will,and” he said.
h2Home team strugglesh2 His Fenerbahandce counterpart Vitor Pereira expressed quite different views on his own squadand’s performance following the Kayserispor match. Fenerbahandce startlingly failed to defeat Beiiktai in its first Istanbul derby two weeks ago and that was at home, where few big teams defeat the Canaries and where this match takes place.
and”We did not play a good match from a technical perspective. However, playing an amazing game and not getting three points would have been worse. We are now continuing our fight for the championship,and” the Portuguese manager told reporters after the Kayseri match. It is true that a victory was a step in the right direction for the Canaries.
and”We were obliged to win [against Kayseri]. We played really well against Beiiktai but came away without the full three points,and” he said. and”If we are going to give general highlights about the match, we drew our last encounter on our home pitch and dropped points. We lost the top spot and experienced a drop in confidence,and” he added.
The Lions almost never defeat the Yellow Canaries at iandukrandu Saracoilu, so they will hope that the Canaries have lost a lot of confidence following the Beiiktai draw.
h2RVP and Podolskih2 The derby will pit the clubsand’ new star strikers against each other — Fenerbahandce bought Dutch international Robin van Persie while Galatasaray picked up Germanyand’s Lukas Podolski over the summer — that is, if Podolski is fit to play following a minor injury.
The two will be fighting for dominance and prestige. Each has scored four goals in the Super League so far this season but both trail Beiiktaiand’s Mario Gomez, which is one reason Fenerbahandce and Galatasaray are not at the top of the league standings.
The winner of this match has a chance to fix that problem of second place for their team. At 17 points, the Lions and Canaries are within striking distance of Beiiktai with 19 points. Should the Black Eagles drop points against Antalyaspor on Monday, they would be overtaken by the derby winner.
Even if Beiiktai remains on top, the battle for second place is more than enough to create an intense and exciting encounter in the Fenerbahandce-Galatasaray derby.
The match kicks off at 7 p.m. at iandukrandu Saracoilu Stadium in KadikandOy.
Also on Sunday, Medipol Baiakiehir hosts Torku Konyaspor. Kickoff is at 2 p.m.
