Galatasaray scores late to draw at Fenerbahçe
Fenerbahçe's Serbian forward Lazar Markovic (R) vies for the ball with Galatasaray's Turkish defender Hakan Balta (L) during the Turkish Super Lig football match between Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray at the Fenerbahçe Şükrü Saraçoğlu stadium in Istanbul on October 25, 2015. AFP PHOTO / OZAN KOSEFenerbahçe was held at a 1-1 draw at home by archrival Galatasaray on Oct. 25 in a Spor Toto Super League game.
The home side scored the opener in the 37th minute when Brazilian attacking midfielder Diego found the net right outside the penalty area, scoring his first goal this season.
He was then shown a yellow card by the referee as he kicked the corner flag while celebrating.
Fenerbahçe appeared to push the brakes down the stretch, seeking to preserve the narrow lead, all the while setting in motion a Galatasaray comeback late in the second half, when the Lions managed to equalize thanks to a close-range header by winger Olcan Adın in the 84th minute.
Adın came on for left-back Lionel Carole, who sustained an injury in the first half.
Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe now both have 18 points, trailing one point behind league leader Beşiktaş, which has a game in hand.
