Title hopefuls Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray take on relegation battlers in two Super League games over the weekend.

Leader Fenerbahçe hosts Gençlerbirliği in a March 1 game, while Galatasaray will visit Çaykur Rizespor a day later.

The Yellow Canaries, whose runaway leader’s status melted away with four consecutive away games without a win, will try to find some morale at home.

The Fenerbahçe board held a press conference Feb. 28, criticizing recent “refereeing mistakes” against the club.

The club officials have said they can even consider quitting the league during a press conference where they show video of recent matches where they claim referees made the wrong decisions.

Fener is still four points ahead of Galatasaray, sitting at the top of the league with 48 points.

Also on March 2, eighth Eskişehirspor will face sixth Kasımpaşa and Karabükspor will host Gaziantepspor.

On March 2, Galatasaray visits Çaykur Rizespor at 7 p.m.

Earlier, Trabzonspor, which was knocked out of the Europa League after a 4-0 aggregate defeat to Juventus, visits Konyaspor. Sivasspor takes on Elazığspor and Kayserispor plays against Erciyesspor.
