Ankaragucu travel to Istanbul at the weekend for the match against Eyupspor. Both sides lost their first game of the season and will be looking to get off the mark. Eyupspor lost 2-0 at Altay while Ankaragucu lost 1-0 at home against Istanbul Gungorenspor.
Last weeks defeat at home against Gungoren was a disappointing result and Ankaragucu know they cant afford to lose ground on the top sides early on. The club will be hoping that they can call upon the new signings who missed out last week due to fitness, and also Emre, Gokhan and Hasan return from International duty.
Eyupspor are considered to be one of the weaker teams in the league which adds to the pressure on Ankaragucu to take the 3 points. They do however have experienced strikers Ersen Martin and Ahmet Dursun who they can call upon.
Ankaragucu have been given 750 tickets for the match in a stadium that holds just over 2000, the large Ankaragucu following could play a huge part in bringing the 3 points back to the Capital. Its difficult to pick the team for the weekend with so many players back and question marks over who will be fit enough to play.
If fit id go with : Gokhan, Orhan, Gurkan, Aydin, Emre, Mert, Serhat, Mehmet, Kaan, Selim, Umut
Mehmet Tasci has been called up to the Turkish U23 squad which means he is set to miss the weekends match. My prediction this week is a 2-0 win for Ankaragucu !
