At the weekend, there was the top match between Trabzonspor and Basaksehir right at the back of the season in Süper Lig. In a scorching duel, the Black Sea club could not stand up to the current leaders and went down in a 2-4.
The missed opportunity to reduce the gap in the six-point match was obviously a great frustration for the coach and the team. Karaman was pleased with the performance of his team and looks optimistic towards the rest of the season. Injury-related failures could dampen his hopes for the big coup. With the current cadre width, failures can not really be adequately replaced. During the week Karaman will therefore send a mix of first and second guard on the pitch in the Cup. After the first leg win in the “Türkiye Kupasi” Trabzonspor looks already in the quarterfinals. Should be proven in Balikesirspor against Trabzonspor but a prediction in favor of the second division, it would be the cup surprise par excellence.

With Giray Bulak was occupied at the beginning of the vacant coaching post of Balikesirspor. The new coach of the current table ten of the second Turkish league to lead Balikesirspor to the promotion playoffs. In addition to the Cup defeat against Trabzon, there was also a bitter defeat in the league for his coaching credential. At eight points behind the bottom of the table, who occupy the last playoff spot, Balikesir is in the second league urgently relies on three points. At the weekend this is the first home game under Bulak. Whether the second division under the week before can provide for a cup surprise remains rather questionable. Although a Süper Lig club (promoted) has been eliminated with Rizespor, Balikesir’s performance in recent fixtures has not been promising. Only one goal Balikesirspor could achieve in the last three competitive games. At home Balikesir already lost three times in the current season. The highest home defeat was at the beginning of the season, when 0-3 was lost to Osmanlispor.
In the manageable squad of Balikesirspor only 31-year-old Nizamettin Caliskan stands out from the crowd.

Bulak has five legionaries in his squad and had no activity in the current transfer window. Reaching the playoffs with the current squad will not be easy anyway. A sensation in the cup? Rather unlikely, especially since the performances in the recent games, especially in terms of offensive were not particularly special.

Vukovic, Iseri, Glumac, Köz, alkane; Cil, Bisi; Sahin Turk, Caliskan, Otoo; Beleck

Trabzonspor – Statistics & Current Form
The six-point game against Basaksehir was lost and thus ended the upturn of the Karaman team. Despite the defeat positive could be taken from the top match against Basaksehir. The performance of Trabzonspor, especially in the offensive game, was strong, but the defense bulwark of Basaksehir could not be broken. Trabzonspor was unable to oppose the concentrated offensive power of Basaksehir on two goals against the strongest defense of the Süper Lig. Karaman continues to set the championship as the goal, but a place among the top four teams would be pleasing for the Black Sea club. In recent years, the reputation as “fourth top club” next to the three traditional clubs from Istanbul downright flutes. Even if Trabzonspor has a problem with the squad, the Black Sea club should not be underestimated, especially if Karaman can draw on the full. Trabzonspor have scored at least two goals in each of their last nine competitive games since their 5-0 loss to Yeni Malatyaspor. In the previous round of the cup Sivas Belediyespor came to the supposedly good starting position in the first leg in Trabzon under the wheels. If the Black Sea club should also present themselves offensively against the second division side in this second leg, could be at Balikesirspor against Trabzonspor a tip on a significant success of the Karaman Elf may pay off.
Karaman will certainly spare one or two top performers and give reservists the chance to prove themselves. The second guard will certainly not only consist of a B-Elf. Even a narrow 1-0 success of Balikesir would seal the trophy of Trabzonspor. From the beginning, the Black Sea club will accordingly seek the early opening goal and then try to make the second leg at will. With midfielder Yusuf Yazici and winger Abdülkadir Ömür Trabzonspor would certainly have an easy match against the second division. Whether Karaman will really let his two protégés run into the starting eleven in the cup match remains uncertain. Although Trabzonspor will not be under pressure with a victory in their baggage in Balikesir, the qualitative difference should be felt, so we at Balikesirspor vs. Trabzonspor are considering a prediction in favour of the guests.
