Trabzonspor play host to Ankaragucu in the Turkish Super Lig on Sunday

Still licking their wounds from their Turkish Cup final heartbreak, Trabzonspor host Ankaragucu in round 38 of the Turkish Super Lig on Sunday (May 26). Emre Belozoglu’s men journey to Papara Park knowing thata a draw will see them secure their top-flight status for another season.

Trabzonspor’s dreams of a 10th Turkish Cup came to a disappointing end on Thursday, as they fell to a 3-2 loss against Besiktas in the final. Abdullah Avci’s men were on a three-game winning streak, including consecutive league victories over Istanbulspor and Istanbul Basaksehir respectively.

With 64 points from 37 matches, Trabzonspor are third in the Super Lig table, six points above fourth-placed Istanbul Basaksehir.

Ankaragucu, meanwhile, failed to pull clear of the relegation zone last time, as they were held to a goalless draw by Pendikspor last time out. Belozoglu’s men have gone seven games without a win across competitions, losing three, since a 3-1 victory over Gaziantep in April.

With 40 points from 37 games, Ankaragucu are 16th in the league, two points above the relegation zone heading into the season finale.
