Turkish football league continues with 7th week matches

Galatasaray to play Karabukspor on Saturday following Akhisar Belediyespor's victory against Fenerbahce on Friday

Anadolu Agency

Galatasaray will take on Karabukspor in Istanbul on Saturday evening on the second day of Turkey's Spor Toto Super Lig Week 7 games.

Coming off a 2-1 away win last week in Bursa, Galatasaray look to continue their dominance in the league by beating Karabukspor at Turk Telekom Stadium.

On Sunday in the week's most anticipated matchup, Besiktas is set to play Trabzonspor at Vodafone Park.

Second-placed Besiktas look to pick up themselves from last week's Fenerbahce defeat. The Istanbul club already won against RB Leipzig on Tuesday in a Champions League group stage match.

Trabzonspor, on the other hand, aim to get over a 4-3 defeat by Alanyaspor last week, when they went up 3-0 in the first half but failed to protect their huge lead.

On Friday in the week's opening match, Akhisar Belediyespor managed to defeat Fenerbahce in Manisa with a score of 1-0.

The home team’s 60th minute goal proved to be enough to seal the victory, while Fenerbahce completed the match with 9 players just like last week. Two players, defender Martin Skrtel and Alper Potuk, were sent off.
