Kasimpasa hosts Fenerbahce in round 27 of Turkish Super Lig. The match will be played on Monday, February 28th at Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Stadyumu (Istanbul)
Kasimpasa has never been considered a serious force in the Turkish Championship. And it is not surprising because the Apaches are based in Istanbul, where there are such popular teams as Fenerbahce, Galatasaray, and Besiktas. Even Istanbul Basaksehir could not compete with them for a long time. And a less-rated neighbor can only remember the cool 1st round in the 2018/2019 season, when it even climbed to 1st place and was in the top three for a long time. After that, Kasimpasa practically did not appear at the top of the standings. In the previous season, the club took only 14th place. Now the Apaches are also in it, but the gap from the relegation zone is only three points. In December and January, there was an excellent streak of five consecutive victories, but then they earned only two points in three matches.

Fenerbahce is one of the most popular teams in the country. But the Canaries cannot win their anniversary 20th championship. The previous title was gained back in 2014, and it is already clear that the team will not be able to take first place in the current season. In general, there is no intrigue in terms of trophies in Turkey. Trabzonspor is simply amazing: it already has 63 points after 26 matches, and it’s clear who will take 1st place. Moreover, Fenerbahce is currently below even such teams as Konyaspor, Adana Demirspor, and Istanbul. But the victories in the last two rounds show that the Canaries will still fight for third and even second place. In addition, they left the Europa League after a defeat to Slavia Prague in a two-legged confrontation.
Formally, it will be almost a derby, as the clubs represent one city. But they are very different in strength, and Fenerbahce won the lion’s share of head-to-head matches, including the last four games. Fenerbahce looked quite good in the last matches of the Super League, but the position in the standings forces Kasimpasa to fight for points. The upcoming game should not be boring, and we bet on Over 2.5 goals scored.
