Kartal – ‘Fenerbahce will win the league title’ [divider]
Fenerbahçe manager Ismail Kartal believes his side are still favourites to win the league title despite falling four points behind league leaders Galatasaray.
“There are some who think Galatasaray have already won the title, the race is ongoing and we are going to win the championship, everyone will applaud us,” Kartal was quoted as saying on Eurosport TR.
Fenerbahçe have dropped five points over the last two weeks in the Süper Lig.
The Yellow Canaries lost their 33 match unbeaten run at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium against Akhisar last week and were held to a 1-1 draw by Konyaspor.
The Istanbul giants have the chance to close the gap with rivals Galatasaray to just one point next week in the Intercontinental derby.
The derby will be played at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium where Fenerbahçe have only lost once this season.
Beşiktaş could however, move into first place if the Yellow Canaries beat Galatasaray next week.
The Black Eagles are currently three points behind the Lions in the league standings.
