Ankaragucu vs Mersin match preview !

Ankaragucu travel to Mersin tomorrow night knowing they have it all to do if they are to take anything from the game.

Ankaragucu have lost Key players such as Theo Weeks, Hurriyet Gucer, Ozden Ongun, Serdar Ozkan, Ediz, Murat Duruer and Kagan to name a few. The team tomorrow will be made up of the A2 Team and the remaining players who have decided to stay.

Aydin Toscali is set to captain the side now that Hurriyet has left the club to sign for Eskisehirspor. Mersin marked there return to the Super Lig with a 2-1 win over Ankaragucu in Ankara the last time the two sides met. Mert Nobre scored both goals while Serdar Ozkan pulled one back for Ankaragucu late on.

Ankaragucu key players in this match will be the experienced players like Aydin Toscali, Turgut Sahin, Mehmet Cogum and Bora Kork. They will need to perform and help the youngsters who come into the side. The youngsters now have a chance to show what they can do and make a name for themselves in the Turkish Super Lig.

Mersin have performed above all expectations this season and find themselves in the Europa League places. They have some good players and Ankaragucu will need to watch out for the pacey Nduka Ozukwo and his strike partner Mert Nobre. They also have talented midfielder's in Wassim Ben Yahia and Andre Moritz.

Last time out Mersin drew 0-0 at home to Eskisehirspor, while Ankaragucu lost 3-0 at Kayserispor. Another tough game for Ankaragucu but they have nothing to loose. Expectations are on Mersin to win the game, can the Ankaragucu youth come out and cause an upset? Lets hope so


  1. We will be watching the match in The Red Lion Club and I will be going there with zero expectations.

    As Nadeem says, perhaps the Youth Team will surprise us ....... and Mersin ..... but, I doubt it very much.

    I have my headline ready for tomorrow's report !!!

    All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

    Wow.. What a result! How did that happen??

  3. That result was due to a damn lot of luck and a bit of individual skill. Looking forward to Sir Eski Kanka's report sometime tomorrow.

  4. Great to hear from you again Phil. Check out my report, but like I said, we are not getting too excited. Time will tell if the 'B' Team can live with the pressure on the run-in and deal with the possibility of relegation.
