Ankaragucu 0-1 Istanbul Gungorenspor Full Time
1508: Just under 1 hour until kick off at the 19 Mayis stadium in Ankara as Ankaragucu host Istanbul Gungorenspor. Although the game is being played behind closed doors due to a stadium ban for Ankaragucu, thousands of fans have turned up to welcome the team.

Full Time : Ankaragucu start the season with a disappointing 1-0 home defeat against Istanbul Gungorenspor. Ankaragucu had plenty of chances but like last season they didn't take their chances and couldn't find that goal. Next up is a trip to Istanbul next week as they take on Eyupsor who also lost 2-0 at Altay.
Hayati Soldas the new coach is already receiving criticism on Twitter with fans calling for his resignation. Crazy but this is the pressure of being coach of Ankaragucu. Its ok going through pre season undefeated, but loosing your first competitive game at home is a not the start you want.
