Gala switch off, Fener push on
Super Lig leaders Galatasaray saw their lead at the top of the Championship group cut to a point as they conceded twice in the last five minutes to draw 2-2 at home to Besiktas. Second-placed Fenerbahce closed the gap at the top with a 3-1 win at Trabzonspor to keep their title hopes alive going into their last game of the season, which is against Gala.
The leaders looked on course for a routine win when Felipe Melo's opener and a Hugo Almeida own goal put them 2-0 up at the break. But substitute Filip Holosko pulled one back in the 86th minute and a Tomas Ujfalusi own goal two minutes later earned Besiktas a point.
Fener started strongly and Emre Belozoglu put them in front after three minutes with Henri Bienvenu doubling the lead just after the half-hour mark. Burak Yilmaz halved the deficit on the stroke of half-time, but Cristian Baroni sealed the points for the visitors five minutes from time. The result left Trabzonspor and Besiktas level on points in third and fourth place.
Bursaspor stayed at the head of the UEFA Europa League play-off group with a 2-0 win over Sivasspor. Turgay Bahadir (45 and 48) bagged both goals for the hosts.
Elsewhere, Eskisehirspor were 3-1 winners over Istanbul Buyuksehir. The hosts cruised into a three-goal lead thanks to goals by Diomansy Kamara (19 and 77) and Veysel Sari (30), while Buyuksehir replied through Doka Madureira (79).
The results left Bursaspor top on 34 points, one clear of Eskisehirspor and two ahead of third-placed Buyuksehir.
