The second consecutive home victory (with 2:0 both) came in the Turkish Cup against a 3rd division team (Afyonspor). The fact that for the first time since the end of September, Fenerbahce made two consecutive victories, gives some hope to the coach Zeki Gole that can stay in the race for the European ticket. With a win, they overtake 3rd place, which is the main motivation in this match. Today, some key players like Crespo, Sangare, Ozil, and Kantioglou are back in the team, while Gustavo and Berisha recovered, but are doubtful. With a draw in Izmir against Goztepe, Adana Demirspor closed the first part of the season in an excellent way, since in the last 8 games they were defeated only by Trabzonspor (away). For these match, coach Montella has three key absences Balotelli (18/7 top scorer), Rassoul (16/0), and Deli (15/0). At Ülker Stadyumu in Istanbul, Fenerbahce has only one defeat in 9 rounds, but their defense is not stable, and due to the big problems in the last line of Adana Demirspor, and think that will easily score at least two goals.
