Trabzonspor take on Denizlispor at the Ataturk Stadium on Monday in the Super Lig.
The Black Sea Storm must win and hope Basaksehir lose but that would not even be enough.
Trabzonspor would have to win again and the Istanbul minnows would have to drop points again to go first.
With just three games remaining you can see why Trabzonspor are unlikely to lift the league table.
But stranger things have happened in football.

Saying that Trabzonspor have not been in the best of form, winning just one of their last four games – drawing the other three.
But Denizlispor have been worse, losing four of their last five games.
The home side appear to have gone on an early holiday but they can’t afford to be complacent anymore as they are just one point above the drop zone.
Trabzonspor have to go for broke and I do not see Denizlispor holding out against a rampant Alexander Sorloth who has 29 goals and 10 assists this season. Not with the state of their defence.
Prediction: Trabzonspor Win
