Three goals in the first 36 minutes inspired Galatasaray as they extended their lead atop the Super Lig table to three points after breezing to a 3-0 victory over lowly Kayserispor.

Umut Bulut put the league leaders in charge after 19 minutes before Cristiano Cris doubled Gala's lead in the 32nd minute. Burak Yilmaz sealed victory four minutes later as Galatasaray went three points clear of Antalyaspor, who visit Fenerbache on Monday.

Second-half goals from Kenan Ozer and Sertan Vardar helped Akhisar Belediye claim a surprise 2-1 win at Sivasspor. Following a goalless first half, Ozer struck a minute after the interval and Vardar doubled the lead on the hour mark before Ziya Erdal set up a tense finale three minutes from time.

Marcio Nobre scored in either half as Mersin Idmanyurdu claimed a comfortable 2-0 triumph over Istanbul Buyuksehir BSK.
