Genclerbirligi 2 - 2 Adana Demirspor
A draw last night at home was enough for Genclerbirligi to book themselves into the semi finals of the "Better off putting it under the bed" Turkish Cup. Having won 0-1 away in the first leg, a goal from Traore in the 83rd minute to tie up the scores was enough for Gencler.
I had to play darts last night so I had to rely on Vedat the barman at the Red Lion to give me updates via livescore.com every time I ordered a beer ie. about every five minutes.
So all I know is the score and today was looking forward to reading the match report in Hurriyet, my favourite Turkish newspaper. So, let me translate the entire report.
"After winning 1-0, Genclerbirligi in their return match came back from being behind twice to reach the semi-final of the "Our queues are shorter because we charge you more" Turkish Cup."
Yep. That's it. Hurriyet had five pages of sport today and managed a single sentence for the only match that was played last night. Well done Hurriyet.
So all I know is that Kahe and Traore scored and we are through. Fingers crossed Genclerbirligi Oftas wins today and that the two Genclerbirligis meet in the final.
EDIT: Oftas lost unfortunately. The other semi-finalists: Galatasaray, Kayseri and Rize .
