The championship race in the Süper Lig is truly breathtaking this season. Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray have left their closest competitor, Trabzonspor, behind by a margin of 14 points, securing their place at the top. Fenerbahçe leads with a +8 goal difference. Although the Yellow Canaries couldn't seize the lead with a point difference, they have topped many crucial statistics in the league. Under the guidance of Ismail Kartal, the team has scored the most goals in the league, finding the net 49 times in 18 matches.
Fenerbahçe's +34 goal difference is even greater than all other teams in the league, excluding Galatasaray (35 goals)! Additionally, the Yellow and Navy team leads the Süper Lig with an average of 6.9 accurate shots per match, 78 clear goal-scoring opportunities, an expected goal (xG) of 44.6, and a 52.9% duel-winning rate.
King of away matches
Fenerbahçe also boasts the best away record in the league so far. The Yellow Canaries have collected 25 points from 9 away matches, securing 8 victories and 1 draw. The only match that couldn't be won ended in a 0-0 draw against Adana Demir. Scoring 23 goals away from home, Fenerbahçe has conceded only 5 goals. In contrast, Galatasaray has accumulated 20 points from 9 away matches.
Everyone contributing to the score!
The performance of the fantastic attacking quartet at Fenerbahçe has been noteworthy this season. Dzeko with 17 goals and 6 assists, Szymanski with 11 goals and 11 assists, Tadic with 11 goals and 9 assists, and İrfan Can Kahveci with 10 goals and 7 assists have shone. However, Ismail Kartal has not relied solely on this quartet for scoring. Except for goalkeepers, 20 out of the 25 players who have been in the squad and played have contributed with goals or assists. The latest addition to the list is Mert Müldür, who provided an assist to Dzeko in the Istanbulspor match. Despite Batshuayi scoring 8 goals behind the Bosnian star and Fred standing out with 6 assists in 18 matches, having been left alone due to injury and subsequent suspension, they both contributed to the team.
