To advance to the final, each team needs to win after a goalless draw in the first leg in the capital.

Besiktas - Form Analysis: Changing coaches hasn't improved the situation

The "Eagles" are under their third coach this season. Fernando Santush lasted only a couple of months - he was appointed in January but was dismissed soon after. Even under Topraktepe, there was a derby loss to Fenerbahce, and overall, there are slim chances of competing with Trabzonspor for third place in the league. The Conference League also ended after the group stage. The only remaining hope is the cup, where they faced convenient opponents - Eyupspor, Antalyaspor, and Konyaspor.

Ankaragucu - Form Analysis: The club can't focus solely on the cup

The "Yellow-Blues" are struggling to reinforce their mid-table status in the Super Lig. They are still near the relegation zone. However, under Emre Belozoglu, they have been actively collecting points in spring, increasing their lead. And most importantly, there are few rounds left. In such a scenario, the cup becomes a clear priority, especially after knocking out Fenerbahce in the quarter-finals (3-0 at home in February). However, they ended up with a goalless draw at home against another big team in the last match.
