Simeon Borisof Posted August 11, 2015 Share Posted August 11, 2015 Fenerbahce-Eskisehirspor That's an opening round after all and i suggest you not to take bets with high stakes just yet. Fenerbahce had to start their preparation for the new season a bit earlier due to their Cl participation.They achieved good pre-season results in both organization of the game and final results which was followed by high expectation for their game against Shakhtar.But...something went awfully wrong and after a goaless draw at home they went to Ukrain in order not to lose but instead of that they got chushed...hard.Shakhtar were all over them and they looked by far the better side.Fenerbahce were lacking fitness and were looking physically depleted although the season has not started yet.I am thinking that if that game had come 2 weeks later the result could've been entirely different.Anyway,Fenerbahce signed a few world class players upfront but they didn't get the job done and were far from their best years-Nani and Persie.Fernandao could be a star player too if he fits in well because he looks fast and strong.Another good signing on paper should be Kjaer from Lille who is set to be the leader of the defence and i think he might be the best player who is coming in.He is known to be solid and reliable but is yet to show that in Toto League.Fenerbahce scored dozen of goals in the pre-season but did not transfer that into the Cl qualifications which let to them being out of it.Now they'll have to focus on the local championship and winning the title,something they are fully capable of.On the other hand,we have Eskisehirspor who spent almost nothing on new players-not that there haven't been any but they came as free agents.One of them i like best is Gungur who has spent his entire career playing in Turkey and has a few national caps.He is an experienced defender and could be a great signing for Eskisehir in their fight against relegation.Gekas of course is another great signing with whom i should've started the preview.He is a great forwarder and you can always rely on him to score goals.He netted many for Akhisar last season and will be once again a great threat to his opponents.Ben Khalifa comes from Grasshopper to join Eskisehir and his pace and vision could well be used.The visiting side had more time to rest and build a team and although the good results are yet to come i expect them to give Fenerbahce a lot of hard time as they have been doing for the past 5 years.Fener have not won that fixture in 2 years and Eski have proved to be very difficult opponent for them.I expect a slow start from the home side and that early elimination to cause some bad effect on the team.That's the 1st round and i think that this game might be closer than the bookies expect and the home side won't win it(if they win at all)by more that 1 goal difference.My bet:Eski +1.5AH @ 1.70 with medium to high stakes and low stakes on Draw @ 5 bothwith bet365.GL! 2:0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
