Ankaragücü vs Alanyaspor match preview!

The time has finally arrived, where Ankaragücü have a home and will open the Eryaman Stadium on Monday night against Alanyaspor in what will be the biggest game of the season for the team so far. Another week has went past with Ankaragücü facing more bad news as Alessio Cerci, Erdem Ozgenc, Thibault Moulin and Bakary Kone the latest players who could leave the club due to unpaid wages.

Mehmet Yiginer and his board have failed to remove the transfer ban which leaves Mustafa Kaplan and the Ankaragücü team with a near impossible task of staying in the Super Lig. Firstly you have unhappy players who haven’t been paid their wages and secondly the team doesn’t have enough quality to get the results needed.

Moestepha El Kabir hasn’t trained with the team and looks like he won’t play. Whatever his differences with Mehmet Yiginer I think it’s unprofessional to refuse to play or train with your team if the reports are indeed true. I have spoken with El Kabir and all he will say is that the truth will come out. I don’t know why he wouldn’t just tell the truth just now and defend himself instead he is alienating himself from the team and the fans.

Hopefully the new stadium will give the team and fans a much needed lift and can help with a positive outcome. Anything other than 3 points is unthinkable for Ankaragücü.

The last time the two sides met, Ankaragücü won 2-0 in Alanya thanks to goals from Ilhan Parlak and Thiago Pinto. A lot has changed since then with Ankaragücü losing their manager and some of their players who terminated their contracts. 

Alanyaspor have some dangerous players in attack such as former Newcastle striker Pappis Cisse and Junior Fernandes. They currently sit 1 point above Ankaragücü in the table and are also fighting for their survival in the Super Lig.

Unlike Ankaragücü, the visitors have been able to strengthen their squad in January with the signings of Fenerbahce midfielder Ozan Tufan and former England International Steven Caulker. 

After last weeks disastrous 6-0 defeat at Galatasaray, Ankaragücü will be looking to give the fans something to cheer about and bring a bit of pride back to the club. I met with Jim tonight in Glasgow and none of us are optimistic but we will be both as usual tuning into the game with the hope Ankaragücü can pull off an upset in our nice new stadium.

  1. Good day friends. The truth is that GREAT MOTHER IS REAL AND UNIQUELY POWERFUL. Contact the Great Mother today and she will help you. when my husband left me for another woman, i thought that was the end but i contacted many spell casters but there was no positive responses and everything seemed not to be working and i was losing my mind until my cousin told me about the GREAT MOTHER who also helped her to bring back her man and also helped her to cure her herpes disease. I gave it a try and i contacted the Great Mother on her Website and i saw various testimonies about her on her good works how she has helped a lot of people. I explained my problems to her. she laughed and told me that, everything will be okay again and that she will help me bring back my man in 3 days time. I actually thought that it was a joke but since i had no other options, i gave it a try and i did what she instructed me do and to my greatest surprise, my man came back to me begging in 3 days time just as she told me. Contact the Great Mother now on her website:   and you can also reach her on her email:  or you can equally contact her on her whatsapp number: +17025514367
