If Fenerbahce want to remain in contention for the Turkish Super League title race, then this is a game that needs to be won. Although having a game in hand, last seasons champions are 9 points behind leaders Galatasaray going into this match with Sivasspor, and anything but a win will severely dent any title hopes.
Fenerbahce remain unbeaten at home this season, dropping just 4 points in their 12 games to date. Far more worryingly, they have lost their last 3 games on the road, letting Galatasaray steal a march at the top of the league.
Although Fenerbahce can be relied upon to perform at home, these persistent away losses must be damaging team morale.
Opponents Sivasspor are currently sitting in 6th position, and while you would expect Fenerbahce to beat them at home under normal circumstances, they must not be taken for granted.
Sivasspor have lost 5 of their 13 away games, winning 4 and drawing 3.
They are a much stronger home side than they are on their travels, and have lost just once in front of home fans this season.
The visitors beat Fenerbahce 2-0 in the reverse fixture back in November, and will be confident they can impose themselves on Fenerbahce for a second time this season.
Fenerbahce are a best price of 4/7 with Bet365 to win this game, and looking at their home record alone, the odds look very attractive.
However when you factor in their overall current form, a few things must be taken on trust, making Fenerbahce a fairly risky investment.
It remains to be seen if Fenerbahce can maintain pressure on Galatasaray at the top of the league, but this game must be won if they are to do so.
