Fenerbahçe thrashed Gaziantepspor last weekend with an incredible 5-0 result. Emenike who had not scored for a long time finally snatched that long awaited brace. Moussa Sow is in incredible form as he’s lead his team’s score sheet multiple times this season. Perhaps, Fenerbahçe is starting to click in the most crucial time of the season. With Besiktas weary of their Europa League journey and Galatasaray not finding their groove, Febuary and March could prove essential for Fenerbahçe in their bid for the title.

Although Akhisar fans will be hopeful as they won last weekend at Kayserispor, Fenerbahçe is a much bigger giant. Also, a trend seen with teams fighting for relegation is that after a victory that takes them clear of the dreaded 18th position they ease up a little in their fight to stay in the league. Also, arriving at Istanbul at Kadikoy which is where Fenerbahçe is deemed to have legendary football fortress could spell disaster for a team like Akhisar.

With a full squad at his disposition Ismail Kartal, the coach of the Canaries will have a whole repertoire of choices ahead of this Monday evening clash. Dirk Kuyt, Sow, Emenike, Meireles should all be in contention to start this game. Also, Besiktas had a slip up earlier this weekend in preparation for their second leg vs Liverpool in Istanbul which poses an incredible opportunity to reclaim leadership of the Super League.

In essence, the difference in quality of the squads should prove too much for an Akhisar side that might get a reality check this weekend. The Over and the Fenerbahçe victory are great bets to add to accumulators however if you find that the odds are too low you can also try handicap -1 for Fenerbahçe at odds: 1.72

Pick:
Fenerbahçe -1

On July 1, 2008 I typed into Google "How Do I start A Blog" and I started my first website called "Miami Mitch's Place" where i shared my college football Picks and predictions as well as opinion. By the Fall I had heard from many that the title made it sound like the site was about Miami so I changed it to "College Football Place" (cfbplace.com), After the 2008 college football season I change focus and launched CBBplace.com, it wasn't long after that when I realized I just wanted one place to add all sports, and that's when Sports Chat Place was born.

This site is a big Thank You to all of our readers, visitors, and community where we have been given a platform to talk to the masses about sports and hopefully help put you on some winners. If you need to reach me just shoot an email to [email protected]
