The impressive performance of the Yellow Canaries this season knows no boundaries, both on the domestic and continental stages. İsmail Kartal's men opened their account in the Europa League with a top-notch performance over Nordsjælland, winning 3-1 at home.
However, they weren't quite done with their rampant behavior as they went on to instill their unwavering dominance in the Turkish Super Lig, winning 1-0 away from home against Alanyaspor courtesy of a 43rd minute İrfan Kahveci goal.
A twelve-match winning streak across all competitions has brought about a glimmer of hope amongst their fans that this season they will be on the frontlines to challenge for gold medals, as İsmail Kartal has brought back the glory days, a feat that many weren't skeptical of at the beginning given his credentials at both the senior and international levels.
They currently occupy second place with 15 points in the standings and are one point behind first-placed arch-rivals Galatasaray.
Probable Starting XI
D. Livakovic; B. Osayi-Samuel, R. Becao, A. Djiku, F. Kadioglu; I. Yuksek, Fred; I. Kahveci, S. Szymanski, D. Tadic; E. Dzeko
There's no doubt that if the opportunity to hit the reset button in this season's Turkish Super Lig presents itself, the Grey Owls will be the first ones to do so instantly. They have not had the best of starts this season, with one win from their five matches.
The Grey Owls opened their account with a 2-0 defeat against Alanyaspor on the road, which was followed by two consecutive losses at home against Fatih Karagumruk (2-0) and Konyaspor (1-0). Although they did manage to tone down the disappointments with a 2-0 win against Istanbulspor,
However, they failed to build up on that win in their most recent match against inner city rivals Galatasaray at home, losing 2-1, an outcome that was going to be a given as they were up against the league's formidable side. This loss extended their losing run at home to three matches.
They currently occupy seventeenth place with three points in the standings within the relegation zone and are level on points with eighteenth-placed Gaziantep.
