Competition: Istanbul Basaksehir vs Trabzonspor, Super Lig
Date: Tuesday, 6th June 2023
Kickoff: 10:30 PM (IST)
Venue: Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium, Istanbul
The Istanbul team has been consistent in recent years in ensuring that they are competitive against the country’s most famous clubs, and this season they just fell short of being competitive for the title challenge. Mahmut Tekdemir, Edgar Ie, Stefano Okaka, Patryk Szysz, and Eden Karzev are all out for the season finale.
Istanbul Basaksehir Possible Starting Lineup:
Deniz Dilmen, Sener Özbayrakli, Ahmed Touba, Shaocong Wu, Caner Erkin, Deniz Türüc, Berkay Aydogmus, Berkay Özcan, Serdar Gurler, Philippe Keny, João Figueiredo
The defending champions did not produce the same result this time around, as their season became more bizarre as they changed coaches on a regular basis. Nenad Bjelica should start the next season on the bench, but the situation at Trabzonspor is not stable enough to predict how long he will stay. Marc Bartra, Ugurcan Cakir, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Yusuf Yazici, and Stefano Denswil are all out.
Trabzonspor Possible Starting Lineup:
Muhammet Taha Tepe, Jens Larsen, Hüseyin Türkmen, Taha Altikardes, Evren Eren Elmali, Manolis Siopis, Marek Hamsik, Edin Visca, Umut Bozok, Trezeguet, Anastasios Bakasetas
