Ankaragucu vs Kasimpasa Match Preview !

Ankaragucu take on Kasimpasa in the Turkish Cup on Wednesday night !

Another excellent performance from Ankaragucu last night as they held Besiktas 0-0 at home in the Turkish Super Lig. The Youth team have now taken four points from there two games played.

Kasimpasa were relegated from the Turkish Super Lig last season and will be hoping to cause an upset. The visitors are in 4th Position in the Bank Aysa and only two points behind leaders Elazigspor.

Last season they met twice, the first in Ankara where Ankaragucu won 3-0, and the second game in Kasimpasa where the home side won 2-1. Although Kasimpasa are in the lower league, they must be considered favourites for this game. Can Ankaragucu Youth team pull off yet another shock ?

There will be a return to Ankara for former Ankaragucu defender Luiz Henrique. The Brazilian defender has been a key player for Kasimpasa this season. Ankaragucu will be hoping for big performances again from the likes of Aydin Toscali, Bora Kork and Ergin Keles. A big question remains over weather Turgut Dogan will still be here.

Lets hope for another good turnout from the crowd.


  1. Not sure if I agree with Nadeem that Kasimpasa will be favourites, however, I do agree that it will be close.

    Also, it does look like we will be without Turgut who is reported in The Hurriyet this morning as going to Gaziantep. Awaiting confirmation of that.

    We will be meeting in The Chopin tomorrow night (Wednesday) from 4.30pm and going to the Stadium at about 5ish.

    As I said before, the Club needs to enter the Group Phase for financial reasons, so I'm sure the players will give it the same effort as the Beshiktrash match.

  2. I believe that is Kenan Evren handing over the cup in the photo. It seems his luck may be as bad as that of our team:

    Note: Thanks to Cider Kanka for tipping me off to this piece of news.

  3. The supporters didn't cheer for Bursa at 16 minutes in this match: now we know why... They bought Keleş.

  4. No!!!! If that is true then that really is a low blow. Even GS backed off Turgut given our situation from what I read. C'mon, Bursa. Give us an fnn break.

  5. Not Keles, Turgut Sahin has signed for Bursa.
