Ankaragucu vs Trabzonspor Match Preview
Ankaragucu host Trabzonspor in the capital on Sunday and the game will be played behind closed doors.
Crowd trouble at the recent Ankaragucu vs Genclerbirligi match has saw Ankaragucu fined and also given a one match stadium ban. Ankaragucu go into the match coming off the back of a 4-0 defeat at Galatasaray.
The last time the two sides met, Ankaragucu twice went ahead through Turgut Dogan Sahin and Theo Weeks only for Trabzonspor to win 3-2 late on. A brave performance in Trabzon for Ankaragucu who were unlucky to come away from the game empty handed.
A lot has changed since then, Ankaragucu have lost there whole first team squad apart from Aydin Toscali, Ergin Keles and Muhammet Turkmen. Trabzonspor have been inconsistent but have started to show some form of late and won 4-1 at home to Eskisehirspor midweek. They have won 7 of there last 8 games with only Karabukspor beating them.
Trabzonspor added Olcan Adin to there squad in the January transfer window in a deal which saw Marek Sapara move to Gaziantepspor. Adin has been excellent and has formed a good partnership with the brilliant Burak Yilmaz. If Ankaragucu are to take anything from the game then Yilmaz, Adin and Andreij will need to be kept quiet.
Ankaragucu will again rely on there remaining experienced players in Aydin, Ergin and Muhammet. The young players will get more valuable experience and will hope to improve on the defensive horror show against Galatasaray midweek.
A huge ask again for this young team, and even more difficult without the backing of the fans.
