The only name on the scoresheet from Trabzonspor was Yusuf Sarı (79').
Their more recent scorelines show that quality has been evident in the Trabzonspor backline. Karadeniz Fırtınası have given the opposition little, with the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their previous 6 matches standing at 2. Historical results aside, we must now wait to see if that pattern shall be sustained in this next game.
Heading into this contest, Trabzonspor haven't been defeated in their previous 4 home league matches.
After tasting defeat last time out to Göztepe in Super Lig competition, Fenerbahçe will be hoping to turn things around here.
Halil Akbunar (9') scored for Göztepe.
A series of hard-working showings from the Fenerbahçe defence has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their last 6 clashes combined. During the same period, their own attack force has managed to score 8.
A look at their previous results shows us that Fenerbahçe:
- have not beaten Trabzonspor when having played them away from home in the previous 3 matches in the league.
- have not been beaten in their last 5 league matches away from home.
