Three red cards after the final whistle – Istanbul derby ends in chaos


The Istanbul derby between Galatasaray and Fenerbahce is one of Europe's most prestigious duels. It was not a game like any other, as shown on the eleventh matchday of the Turkish Süper Lig: Immediately after the final whistle, the pros of both clubs went to each other in the center circle, reservists, attendants and folders hurried to attack opposing players.

But not only on, but also off the square it came to tumultuous scenes. Policemen fought fiercely with angry Galatasaray spectators. The sad climax was a scene in which a Fenerbahce player was chased from the field. The referee then showed the red card three times. N'Diaye (Galatasaray) as well as Jailson and Soldado (Fenerbahce) have to reckon with longer barriers after their attacks.

Clashes in the stands

Previously, football was also played: Schalke's Champions League opponents Galatasaray gambled a possible victory in just six minutes. In the second half (1-0), second-half goals were scored with goals from Dutchman Ryan Donk (31st minute) and Norwegian Martin Linnes (49.), but Fener fought his way through Mathieu Valbuena (66./foul ) and Jailson (72.) at least one important point in the relegation battle.

The 19-time Turkish champions are currently surprisingly only ranked 15th at the top of the table could Basaksehir on Saturday with a victory against Besiktas in the second Istanbul derby of the weekend (17 clock) settle. Basaksehir came second last year and dreams of the first championship of the young club history.
