Fenerbahçe restarts title race by beating Galatasaray

The Istanbul Derby, a title derby or a derby to get back on track? That was the whole point of this confrontation between Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe. With an exceptional second half of the season (17 wins and 1 draw), Cimbom is at the top of the Süper Lig standings and could win the trophy today in the event of a draw or victory. Fenerbahçe, who absolutely had to win, was the most enterprising team despite a very hostile atmosphere. On a second foul on his part, Alexander Djiku was sent off after a second yellow card (22nd). But this exclusion did not upset Fener.

With an excellent Fred, the team’s metronome, Fenerbahçe continued to be dangerous. The two best attacks in the championship could not remain silent. From a corner, Çağlar Söyüncü managed to spoil the party. The Turk picked up a ball mismanaged by Fernando Muslera in front of the line to give his team the advantage (0-1, 71st). Galatasaray, who wanted to keep the draw, never knew how to come back. The current leaders lose their first match since November this evening, their second defeat of the season. The Istanbul Lions no longer have any room for error. Now only three points ahead of Fenerbahçe, they must not lose next week against Konyaspor. For Fener, there is still hope. The Yellow Canaries will host Istanbulspor.
