Turkish Super Lig four teams in title contention

The Turkish Super Lig continues to be the most tightly-contested football league in Europe this season with four teams fighting to be crowned champions and there are just four weeks left.

The Turkish Super Lig continues to be the scene of some unprecedented title drama with all top four teams fully in contention even at the end of game week 30. Since its foundation in 1959, the Turkish league has never seen a title race this close. Game week 30 came to a close Monday as fourth-placed Fenerbahçe made clear its intent that it would chase Galatasaray, Istanbul Basaksehir and Besiktas. The Yellow Canaries thrashed relegation-threatened Antalyaspor 4-1 at Ulker Stadium.

With the win, Fenerbahçe took its point tally to 60, just three points adrift of league leader Galatasaray. Second-placed Besiktas and third-placed Basaksehir have 62 points each. On Friday, Istanbul Basaksehir beat Kayserispor 3-1 in the opening match of the week. Galatasaray managed to secure three points with a tough 3-2 win on the road against lowly Alanyaspor Saturday. Besiktas, on the other hand, beat Malatyaspor 3-1 at Vodafone Arena on Sunday. The league next week will brace for a potential title decider as Galatasaray hosts Besiktas Sunday. Other title aspirants, Fenerbahçe and Basaksehir, will also keep a close tab on the match.
