Football News – Konyaspor-Fenerbahce
Konyaspor hosts Fenerbahce in a match from the 17th round round of the Turkish Super Lig.
Konyaspor are not performing very well in the league so far. They are 14th in the league standings with 14 points won so far and a record of 4 wins, 2 draws and 10 defeats. They are on par with the 16th Antalyaspor, so very soon they could find themselves again in the relegation zone, if they don’t improve their results.
In their last match Konyaspor suffered a 0-1 defeat against Goztepe, which followed their win against Kardemir. So far Konyaspor are being unable to make a good run of results, which could improve their position in the standings.
Fenerbahce on the other hand are a curious case this season. The Istanbul giant started the new season with unconsistency, but lately the Feneri managed to stabilize and now they are enjoying a run of five consecutive wins in the Super Lig. All of this helped Fenerbahce to move to 2nd place in the standings, being on just one point behind the leader Istanbul Basaksehir. Now they are expecting a mistake from the leader, which could allow them to lead the table.
In its last match Fenerbahce enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 win against Kardemir Karabukspor at home. Mehmet Topal and Mathieu Valbuena scored the winning goals for the home team, who is showing a great form in the last few weeks.
This is exactly what Fenerbahce’s fans want to see from their favourite team. The club’s main goal is to stop Besiktas’ dominance in the Super Lig and get back on the top. But this season the title race looks really intense. Istanbul Basaksehir, Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and the champion Besiktas are all fighting for the first place, so every mistake could be fatal in future.
