Gaziantep Kamil Ocak Stadium
February 14, 19:00


Caner served his one match suspension midweek during the cup and Volkan has three more matches out. No problem there as I have complete faith in Mert. Topal left the cup match with a swollen ankle it isn't clear if he will feature. Looks like Egemen might have been injured in training today and Hasan is still training individually. Emre might make the trip. Will see tomorrow when the squad leaves Istanbul.

The 23 players that will be going to Antep:

Mert Günok, Erten Ersu, Volkan Demirel, Gökhan Gönül, Caner Erkin, Michal Kadlec, Bekir İrtegün, Egemen Korkmaz, Bruno Alves, Selçuk Şahin, Emre Belözoğlu, Mehmet Topal, Raul Meireles, Diego Ribas, Alper Potuk, Dirk Kuyt, Emmanuel Emenike, Moussa Sow, Mehmet Topuz, Pierre Webo, Serdar Kesimal, Hasan Ali Kaldırım, Uygar Mert Zeybek.

Interesting to see Volkan in the squad since he serving a "suspension" unless he is appealing it or something.

Edit: Halis Özkahya is reffing our game.

I think he's there just for support, otherwise Erten wouldn't have been included. Surprised to see Egemen and Topal both in the squad but that's good. Hopefully we can do the job tomorrow. The cup midweek might have brought some confidence back to Sow and Emenike.

Antep should be level I don't know how they haven't scored. We played the first ten minutes great, scored and have been crap since. Better pick it up and fast before we lose points here in the second half.

Diego needs to come off. He's not tracking back to help defence and he's not that effective in offence either. Would love to see Alper come on.

Agreed. Kuyt too is not getting back. They are easily running over our midfield because of that and when we get near the Antep box we give it away with a poor pass or cross.

Selcuk for Diego. Really, Ismail? We're going to sit back for a whole damn half? The static trio in the middle, geez.

Looks like Okan told them to dive if Topal is even near them. They are really trying to get him sent off.

Hopefully Mehmet Topal is subbed off. Like Metin said Okan Buruk is trying to get him sent off by telling his players to dive like little bitches whenever they are near Mehmet Topal.

Edit: Sow makes it 3-0
