Konyaspor – Galatasaray – In the last quarterfinal duel of the Turkish Cup of Power, on Thursday evening, will be tasked with the defender of the title Konyaspor and the famous Galatasaray, which in view of the current form certainly applies to the absolute favorite. Namely, Galata hosts this match after a series of five consecutive wins, but also from the other position on the Superliga table, while Konyaspor is just a forward-looking and has even 25 points behind. In addition, the last three of their duels came from Galati.
However, unlike very pale issues in the domestic championships, Konyaspora team this season also offers very good matches in the Turkish Cup and are still in the game to defend the title, which they won last year after being in the big finals better than Basakhsar. After that, in the Turkish Super Cup this season, they beat the current Besiktas champion, while in their debut at the European League they only won six points and therefore failed to win the placement in the knockout stage.
However, all of these appearances on multiple fronts made them a lot of problems in the championship, so at the end of October, instead of Akcha, Ozdilek arrived at the coach position, but nothing changed much because they are still in the foreground spot on the table. That is why at the end of the winter transition period they brought up to three offensive players, Sen, Jahovic and Eto’o, but they probably will not be in the competition for this match with Galata, just like the injured Traor and Yatabar attackers and the suspended striker Turan.
Certain initial composition of Konyaspor: Kirintili – Skubić, Filipović, Moke, Albayrak – Hadžiahmetović, Jonsson – Sahiner, Araz, Fofana – Milošević

On the other hand, their first companions and angry city rivals Besiktas and Fenerbahce currently have four or five points behind Galata, which certainly has great expectations from the National Cup. However, experienced expert Terim has announced that in this first clash with Konyaspor on the field to send a combined show, which otherwise does not compete only the forward injured midfielder Fernando.
