Gala hit four, Kasimpasa follow
Galatasaray thrashed ten-man Antalyaspor 4-0 to stay top of the Super Lig. Johan Elmander got the opener after ten minutes before Nordin Amrabat doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time.
Things got worse for the hosts three minutes into the second half with the dismissal of Isaac Promise for a poor challenge on goalkeeper Fernando Muslera, which led to some testy exchanges between the players. When it had all settled down, Galatasaray substitute Burak Yilmaz bagged a third, before Umut Bulut wrapped it up late on.
Kasimpasa continued their impressive start to sit one point behind the leaders with a 3-0 win over Gaziantepspor. All the goals came in the second half and two in injury time, with Kalu Uche and Pablo Pintos Cabral scoring in time added on after Ozer Hurmaci broke the deadlock five minutes into the second half.
Bursaspor are third, four points from the summit, after coming from behind to beat Karabukspor 4-1. Karabukspor stunned the hosts with Ihan Parlak's 11th-minute opener, but Sebastian Pinto and Pablo Bastalla teamed up to turn the game around.
Pinto levelled before the half-hour mark, and Bastalla gave them the lead just before the break. Pinto's second came from the penalty spot with 20 minutes to go, and Bastalla capped it five minutes from time.
