The new year should be very different, but far from it. In the cup, it hailed a defeat against a second division and already the optimism, in the new calendar year to find the old strength, there. To start the second leg, it goes for Fenerbahce to Bursa. To meet in the first game of the second half of the home team from Bursa, the traditional club from Istanbul would have rather avoided. Ersun Yanal is still ambitious to lead his team to success despite the defeat by Cup in the first leg against Ümraniyespor. But his resources in the squad but limited. With a threesome on this day Fenerbahce could leave the relegation zone right at the back of the season. Whether at Bursaspor against
Fenerbahce a tip on passable odds on the guests will play?
Football Prediction for Today Bursaspor vs Fenerbahce
The “canaries” are certainly not in the best shape, but at Bursaspor Vs. Fenerbahce favors the guests according to our prediction. Ersun Yanal and Fenerbahce need the points in the current situation. A threesome would be like a blessing for the Istanbul club. For the 100th time Bursaspor and Fenerbahce will face each other in the Süper Lig. Since 2009, the “canaries” in Bursa have not lost. Will the trend continue this time? On Monday evening, the two clubs meet at 18:00 in Bursa!
Bursaspor – Statistics & Current Form
In the current season Bursaspor is not really doing well. Due to the upheaval at the beginning of the season that was partly already foreseeable. With Samet Aybaba the “Timsahlar” are to find the old strength and are still at the beginning of a long way. The score of 4-9-4 does not mean anything at the end of the first leg when we look at Bursa’s recent seasons. Again and again there was a very strong first round, which was overshadowed by a catastrophic second half. Whether with Aybaba the “curse” is completed and this season a relegation battle can be avoided, will show itself in the course of the season. The Bursa coach is realistic and estimates the current situation extremely critical. Bursaspor was able to make use of a strong defensive this season and is the strongest defender of the Süper Lig behind Basaksehir, with only 17 goals against them. The Aybaba team scored the most points on home soil. Top clubs like Besiktas and Basaksehir bit their teeth on Bursa’s strong defensive line and had to return home with a measly point. If Bursa’s defensive bulwark holds up again, Bursaspor’s win against Fenerbahce could well be a prediction for a draw.
After numerous departures Bursaspor is always difficult to assess. With Aybaba, an experienced coach is on board, who has formed from the “pile of rubble” quite a strong team. That the offensive still suffers from the departure of the game maker Pablo Batalla, also show the statistics. Only 17 goals Bursaspor was able to achieve throughout the first round. In the 4-2-3-1 of Aybaba, there will be no major changes in the new year. Despite two departures, there was no activity on the transfer market from Bursa and this is likely to continue. After the premature end in the Turkish Cup, the focus is entirely on the Süper Lig. There were two draws at the end of the year – there is now the third in series, waving at Bursaspor against Fenerbahce odds of 3.40.
Expected formation of Bursaspor:
Sengezer; Meras, Chedjou, Vergini, Yardimci; Kara, Badji; Latolevici, Saivet, Torun; Nayir

Fenerbahce – Statistics & Current Form
The new year should have started better. Ersun Yanal sparked optimism and stressed the importance of putting another Fenerbahce on the pitch than last year. However, what was presented in the cup was not promising. Again, there was a lack of opportunity exploitation, which was punished after the dismissal of Elmas with a goal. Second division Ümraniye is thus advantageous in the Cup second leg and could put the “canaries” a bitter setback. The Cup competition could namely be the only chance for Fenerbahce, to secure the el-start right in a finals appearance or the cup title. But now it’s back to the league competition, where Fenerbahce is lagging behind expectations anyway. It would have been unthinkable years ago that Fenerbahce would have to hibernate on a relegation rank. For the second half of the season, however, the “canaries” have themselves in their hands to leave them as soon as possible. Even a victory at Bursaspor would bring Fenerbahce to the saving shore. With a score of 3-7-7, there was not much to celebrate. Above all, the weak offensive (third worst of the Süper Lig) made the traditional club to create.
Chancentod Islam Slimani is at the forefront of ranking alongside the other transfer flops in Fenerbahce’s club history. The 30-year-old leaves again and again one hundred percent chance and is instrumental in the lousy Torausbeute Fenerbahce fault. His alternatives Frey and Soldado will soon be getting more minutes of use, especially as Slimani has to be out of action anyway. Yanal is known for his offensive style of play. From the beginning, the Fener coach wants to destroy the concept of the opponent with a powerful game and take the lead. Although his handwriting could be read in the last games, Fenerbahce did not really succeed with it. The failed transfer policy for the start of the season could cost the “canaries” in this season expensive. Still, at Bursaspor, against Fenerbahce, is there a hint on the score?
Expected formation of Fenerbahce:
Demirel; Kaldirim, Ciftpinar, Skrtel, Ozbayrakli; Jailson, Topal; Valbuena, Benzia, Ayew; Frey

Fenerbahce is in dire need of points in the current constitution. The defensive strong team of Aybaba comes to the “canaries” from Istanbul but not exactly convenient.
