After throwing in the towel in the Turkcell Super League with consecutive point losses, the cup is Fenerbahçe’s last target in this campaign, and the team now has a real chance to end its 26-year title drought in the competition.
Speaking after the game, Fenerbahçe’s Spanish coach Luis Aragones said that his side played well.
"Both teams found clear chances, Sivas could have scored and so could we," said Aragones. "But we played seriously, giving little spaces between our players. We controlled the game well and put on a good performance."
Sivasspor coach Bülent Uygun rued missed chances.
"We tried everything but could not past the posts," said Uygun. "I am proud of my players. They are doing their mission perfectly."
Uygun added that Sivas would win the title if it could get four wins and one draw in the next six weeks.
