Goztepe 2-1 Ankaragücü

Ankaragücü lost 2-1 at Goztepe which means the Izmir side will stay in the Super Lig while Bursaspor are relegated.

Team - Korcan, Kitsiou, Alihan, Pazdan, Cebrail, Moke, Canteros, Scarione, Ilhan, Sacko, Orgill

Goztepe took the lead through an Alpastan header in the first half before Pazdan equalised for Ankaragücü.

It looked like we were heading for a draw which would have kept Bursaspor up who were leading at Malatyaspor. But Goztepe were awarded a penalty after Cebrail hand balled in the box. Up stepped Deniz Kadah to make it 2-1 and start the celebrations in Izmir.

Now we await what the summer transfer window brings for Ankaragücü and we will have all the latest news here.


  1. According to Swedish media, Ankaragücü has offered the goalkeeper of Hammarby IF Gianluca Curci a contract. Curci has played for Roma and Sampdoria in the past. Former Ankaragücü keeper Johannes Hopf is rumoured to return to Hammarby IF instead...

  2. I just don't understand what Cebrail was doing at that free kick when he deliberately put his arm out at the end of the wall which couldn't be concealed. Players are supposed to protect 'their jewels' at free kicks !!! Only he knows why he did it !!!

    Thanks for the heads-up on Curci the goalkeeper Anders. We will be watching for further on this. We have a very good goalkeeper in Korcan, but because we sold Altay to Galatasaray, we will definitely need back-up.

    1. Yeah, Curci has been pretty good for Hammarby this season, but has only signed for half a year (the Swedish season is spring to fall) and it seems like his first priority is to stay in Stockholm, but you never know.
