Ankaragucu vs Besiktas Match Preview !
Monday night will see Ankaragucu travel to Istanbul as we take on Besiktas. Both teams lost their opening match and will be hoping to get their first win of the season under their belt. It will be a very difficult game for Ankaragucu but anything is possible.
Last season Besiktas won 4-0 in Istanbul, we had a goal disallowed that night which would have given us the lead, but the referee got it wrong and Besiktas went on to win. Ankaragucu won 1-0 at home in the next game thanks to an early goal from Serdar Ozkan.
Besiktas have a number of new players, Mustafa Pektemek who will be well known by the Gencler Kankas and Brazilian defender Sidnei to name a few. Besiktas are a very flamboyant side with talented players like Ricardo Quaresma, Simao and Manuael Fernandes. Hugo Almeida will need to be watched as the striker knows where the net is. Besiktas lost 2-1 away at Eskisehirspor last weekend and will be disappointed with their start.
Ankaragucu started with a disappointing 2-1 home defeat against Mersin, Jim gave us our match report and the highlights also showed that we weren't good enough and Mersin deserved the win. Ziya Dogan will have worked the players hard this week and the players should be sharper. I would expect him to make a couple of changes to the starting line up as well with Tonia and Serdar coming in to start the game.
Prediction for the match is a Besiktas win, unfortunately with so many of our Key players having left, this is a huge task for the players.
Team I would start with would be Senecky in goal, Back four of Ugur, Ediz, Rajnoch and Ishak, midfield 3 of Kagan, Theo and Hurriyet, With Tonia and Serdar on the wings supporting Ergin Keles up front.
