Fenerbahce is the favorite to win the match. The current champion of Turkey was defeated by Bursaspor in the last two meetings, as in the Turkish Super League, the team of Fenerbahce had a win and a tie against them. The hosts still have a chance to repeat it and in the Superleague Cup, where they occupy second place with just three points behind Galatasaray.
'The Lanterns` managed to achieve a valuable victory in the Championship in the last round over Mersin, after previously saved par with Erkerispor and so allowed Galatasaray to beat them. For the upcoming household, the senior coach Kartal will leave to rest one of the incumbent players to keep the team prepared for the upcoming round of the Championship. The advance from the point against Bursaspor is fully enough for the teams to finish even par in this meeting and to continue in the final.
The loss of Bursaspor at home against the team of Fenerbahce was the first of nearly two months for the team on their terrain. In the Superleague Cup, they occupy the 5th place, but are behind by four points from the places to ensure participation in the Euro tournament.
The away matches are not the strong suit of Bursa. For the six games so far, the team has made five defeats and one draw, suggesting in this match it will play open and risky, looking for an early goal. If they work out the game we can witness an interesting twist, since the attack of Bursaspor is one of the most effective in the League.
In the personnel plan, the guests will play without the goalkeeper Frey and the central defender Kiveli.

Our soccer forecast is X.

After the black series without victories, Hamburger managed to win seven points for the past three rounds, which increased the chances of survival. The coach Bruno Labbadia is able to allow one defeat to the end, but in the last round, Hamburger will play against Schalke. It is better to try to win some points today.

Inzaghi: I apologize, but a red card in the first minutes is too much!

The coach of Milan Filippo Inzaghi apologized after losing with 0:3 by Napoli in the visit of the 34th round of the Italian Serie A. The former striker believes that the referee goes too far, showing a direct red card to Mattia De Sciglio before the expiration of the first minute.

"De Sciglio is an experienced player; he plays for the national team. A penalty and a red card in the first minute is too much strong blow on any team. I think he had to show him a yellow card. The team handed out with a man less for 70-minutes, but the first allowed goal was too much strong shock on the players, "said Inzaghi. He refused to answer to a question related to the scandal Mattia Destro, who grumbled from the change in the 57th minute. According to the Italian media, the attacker asked Inzaghi three times why he is changed.

"Everyone is unhappy, when are replaced, unless when are injured. I needed a fresh striker and I changed Destro with Pazzini. So much for the story," said Inzaghi.
