The Turkish league is by far and away the most exciting in Europe this season

Just three points separate the top four whilst seven teams are in danger of relegation

Almost all of the major European leagues have been a bit predictable for our liking this season.

The Bundesliga, Premier League and Ligue 1 titles have already been settled whilst Barcelona and Juventus hold commanding leads in La Liga and Serie A respectively.

So if you’re in need of a mouthwatering finale there’s really only one place for it.

The Turkish Super Lig is set for a breathtaking finish to the season, with issues to be settled at both the top and the bottom.

With just four games remaining, only three points separate the top four of Galatasaray, Besiktas, Istanbul Basaksehir and Fenerbahce.

Galatasaray currently lead Besiktas by one point and the two play each other in a potential title decider next weekend.

Tasty.

Istanbul Basaksehir – spearheaded by Emmanuel Adebayor’s goals this season – are level with Besiktas and waiting to pounce should either side falter.

And Fenerbahce are just a further two points back, still in with a sniff if the title themselves.

At the other end it’s equally compelling.

Kardemir Karabukspor are down but above them any of seven teams are seriously threatened by relegation.

In fact just six points separate 11th from 17th – with two of them going down.

Add to that the multitude of ex-Premier League faces enjoying themselves in Turkey and it’s a true footballing frenzy.

Bafetimibi Gomis is top scorer, while the likes of Adebayor and Ryan Babel have starred for their respective sides.

And Fenerbahce could field a strike duo of Roberto Soldado AND Vincent Janssen in what is probably a Spurs fan’s worst nightmare.

The rest of Europe might well be wrapped up, but don’t sleep on Turkey.
