A late strike from Edu salvaged a point for Beşiktaş, who was held to a 1-1 draw at Orduspor on March 11 in a Spor Toto Super League game.

With the draw, Beşiktaş advanced to 50 points, but it fell further behind the league’s pacesetter, Galatasaray.

Leader Galatasaray has 69 points while Fenerbahçe has 60.

On Sunday, a blunder by goalkeeper Rüştü Reçber gave Bogdan Stancu a chance to score an easy goal for Ordu on the 45th minute.

Brazilian striker Edu scored from well outside the box in the 71st minute to give Beşiktaş one point.
In other games on Sunday, Karabükspor beat Antalyaspor 2-1, Manisaspor beat Mersin İdman Yurdu 2-0 and Samsunspor held Gaziantepspor to a goalless draw in three games of great importance to the relegation battle. Karabük has 37 points, Gaziantep has 36, Antalyaspor has 35, Manisaspor has 32 and Samsunspor has 30 in six spots from 12 to 17. Two of those six teams will fall short in their bid to avoid relegation
