Başakşehir knocked out of Champions League

Turkish football club Medipol Başakşehir have been eliminated from the UEFA Champions League over Dec. 2's 4-3 loss against Germany's RB Leipzig in Istanbul.

Başakşehir lost at home but fought well, scoring 3 goals.

Istanbul club's Turkish midfielder Irfan Can Kahveci was on fire as the 25-year-old netted three goals to keep Başakşehir's hopes alive.

RB Leipzig earned the critical win as Danish forward Yussuf Poulsen, French defender Nordi Mukiele, Spanish forward Dani Olmo and Norwegian forward Alexander Sorloth scored for the 4-3 win.

The match was 3-3 until Leipzig's very late winner.

Sorloth has scored the winning goal for RB Leipzig in the 92nd minute as he fired outside the area.

His goal ended Başakşehir's Round of 16 hopes.

In the Group H, Başakşehir are in the last position with 3 points in 5 matches.

Third-place Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have 7 points and the French team are currently playing against the Group H leaders, English club Manchester United, who bag 10 points.

Leipzig had 9 points to come second.

The Turkish team could not enter the second-tier UEFA Europa League knockout stage if PSG had a point on Wednesday.

Başakşehir will visit PSG next week as the group stage will be over.
