Fatih Karagumruk - Form analysis: Cannot focus solely on the cup

The "Black and Reds" have ambitions, but this season has been challenging for them. They haven't secured a spot in the Super Lig for next season yet. They managed to win a couple of crucial matches recently, increasing their lead over the relegation zone. In the cup, they eliminated Galatasaray in the quarter-finals, even winning away. However, they lost in Trabzon with a close score of 1-2.

Trabzonspor - Form analysis: Back in the leading group

After winning the championship in 2022, Trabzonspor naturally declined this season. Nobody can catch up with Galatasaray and Fenerbahce. However, under Avdji's guidance, they've managed to distance themselves from all other teams, including Besiktas. They won't lose their third place, so they can focus on the cup. They've already eliminated four opponents, including Istanbul Basaksehir in the quarter-finals, and they won at home in the semi-finals, albeit narrowly.
