ANKARA 

Turkey’s top-tier football division ‘Super Lig’ underdogs Demir Grup Sivasspor are targeting their first-ever major title.

A modest club with limited monetary resources, Sivasspor maintained their heroic run to rule the Super Lig’s first half.

This summer, the club signed 13 players on free transfer to strengthen the squad.

Sivasspor earned 37 points in 17 matches to feel safe and secure before the second part of this season.

The nearest opponents in the league table, Medipol Basaksehir from Istanbul, are chasing Sivasspor with 33 points. Trabzonspor come third with 32 points.

One of the ‘Big Three’, Fenerbahce are currently in fourth spot with 31 points in the standings.

Besiktas are hot on Fenerbahce’s trail as they earned 30 points in the first half.
