Nine seasons ago, Fenerbahce won their last title and that is a long time for such a giant. Club’s management led by president Ali Koc invested a lot of money this summer and Fenerbahce will be the first favourite to win the Turkish Super League. In addition to excellent head coach Jorge Jesus, players such as Joao Pedro, Lincoln, Diego Rossi, Joshua King and Bruma were signed.
Fenerbahce also had a great desire to play in the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2008, but that won’t happen. Regardless of the fact that they were a much better rival on the pitch, Fenerbahce was eliminated by Dynamo Kyiv. As things stand now, they will play in the Europa League in next period.
In two matches against Dynamo Kyiv, key problem for Fenerbahce was bad realization. They created many chances, but failed to score goals. They were better in that segment against Slovacko last week when they won 3-0. As time goes on, Fenerbahce will play better because it takes time to fit in many new players.
Last season, Umraniyespor finished second in the TFF First League with eight points more than third placed Bandirmaspor. Thanks to that, they were promoted to the Turkish Super League for the first time in their history. This match against Fenerbahce will be always remembered, as it will be the first one for Umraniyespor in the top tier of domestic football.
Since Umraniyespor doesn’t have much money, they only signed free agents. The biggest addition is defender Ermir Lenjani, who played in the Swiss Super League for the previous five years. Geraldo, Allyson, Durel Avounou, Isaac Sackey, Mert Yilmaz, Valentin Gheorghe and veteran goalkeeper Serkan Kirintili were also brought in.
Umraniyespor will be by far the cheapest team in the Turkish Super League and they will need a lot of luck to avoid relegation. The match against Fenerbahce will be a duel between the richest and cheapest team, so it’s not realistic to expect much from Umraniyespor in the opening round. Any defeat that is not a debacle will be a solid result for them.
Fenerbahce and Umraniyespor played against each other in the Turkish Cup round of 16 back in 2019. Then, Umraniyespor sensationally won both matches by 1:0. Interestingly, both times Fenerbahce got a red card and after that they conceded a goal.
Fenerbahce will play without several players in this match. Serdar Aziz, Nazim Sangare, Irfan Can Kahveci, Mert Hakan Yandas and Joao Pedro are out due to injuries. All players are available for Umraniyespor.
Fenerbahce vs. Umraniyespor Prediction
After defeating Slovacko 3:0, Fenerbahce will want to start the Turkish Super League in the same way. In previous seasons, they lost a lot of points against weaker teams, and that must change. Because of this, experienced coach Jesus was brought in and we should expect Fenerbahce to start their quest to the title in a dominant way.
