On Wednesday afternoon, Istanbul Basaksehir will host Umraniyespor at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium. Umraniyespor is doomed to relegation.
Umraniyespor and Basaksehir are both eight points outside of the bottom four in the Turkish Super Lig standings with the season's finish in sight.
Istanbul Basaksehir has had a below-average season thus far, and with only a few games left in the regular season, the 2019–20 Super Lig champions are 17 points outside of the European spots.
In actuality, eight clubs have scored more goals than Emre Belozoglu's team's 44 in 31 games, while six teams have suffered fewer losses than Basaksehir did this season.
Although the Grey Owls promptly returned to losing ways last time out, it is important to note that Basaksehir have a foot in the Turkish Cup final thanks to a 1-0 victory in the first leg of their semifinal matchup with Ankaragucu.
Following consecutive losses to Istanbulspor and Fenerbahce last month, Basaksehir's most recent match ended in a 1-0 defeat at Galatasaray, allowing Okan Buruk's team to inch closer to the championship.
Istanbul Basaksehir has had a lot of success at home this season, winning 10 of their 15 league games at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium.
They will be hoping to give their supporters something to cheer about on Wednesday.
Sadly, Umraniyespor's first Super Lig season appears certain to fail as they are currently eight points from safety after losing 17 of their 31 league games this year.
