Trabzonspor vs Istanbul Başakşehir cheat sheet
Sunday’s crucial game takes place at the 40,782-capacity Şenol Güneş Stadium. However, the stadium won’t be its usual cauldron of noise, as the match will be taking place behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic. The match is set to kick-off at 4pm Turkish time (TRT). That’s 1pm GMT in the UK – or 9am ET or 6am PT in the US.
Only goal difference separates the two teams in the Turkish Süper Lig table, with both sides on 52 points. Hosts Trabzonspor currently enjoy the top spot thanks to goal difference, following their 3-1 away win at Malatyaspor.
Whilst perhaps less known than teams such as Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray, Trabzonspor are one of the most decorated clubs in Turkish football, having won the Süper Lig on seven occasions.
Istanbul Başakşehir, on the other hand, are very much in uncharted territory here and are in the hunt for what would be their first ever top-tier title. This huge match should provide a perfect indication as to whether Okan Buruk’s side have the composure for what looks set to be a nail-bitingly close finish to the Süper Lig season in Turkey.
