Lucky Eagles stumble but do not fall to Crocs, Fener wins

The Black Eagles needed a touch of good luck to preserve their position at the top of the Spor Toto Super League standings in week 11, as they played poorly at Bursa but walked away with one goal and three points when the dust had cleared on Sunday.
Beiiktai badly needed the victory since second-placed Fenerbahandce also won its fixture, a 1-0 result against Konyaspor at home. Sivasspor pummeled Gaziantepspor 3-0.
On Saturday, Galatasaray had a goal-filled showdown, losing 4-3 to minnow andcaykur Rizespor, Kasimpaia edged Akhisar Belediye Genandclik ve Spor 2-1, Istanbul Baiakiehir beat Trabzonspor 1-0 and Antalyaspor drew 1-1 with Kayserispor.
h2 Lucky breakh2 Oiuzhan andOzyakupand’s 89th minute goal ensured that the Eagles would stay in the top spot with 26 points to Fenerbahandceand’s 24. After dropping its points, Galatasaray has fallen slightly further back in the championship race with 21.
Turkish national team midfielder Olcay iahan carried the ball into the box and passed it up to the edge of the penalty box. Canadian defender Atiba Hutchinson controlled it, setting it up for Oiuzhan to sprint in and blast it into the back of the net behind helpless keeper Mert Gandunok.
and”It was our lucky day. We played a team made up of good players that played better than we did,and” Beiiktaiand’s coach ienol Gandunei admitted after the match. and”We had fatigue from the Europa Cup. We lost possession too much. Our pass completion rates were low. We were met with pressure from our opponent. We did not create chances in midfield,and” he added.
Argentinean midfielder Jose Sosa, Brazil defender Rhodolfo and Germany striker Mario Gomez all had shots on goal. Joseand’s was just wide and Gomezand’s was blocked at point-blank range by Mert.
and”We played a good team. Bursaspor has good players. They were the team closer to victory,and” Gandunei said. and”This is the first time this season that luck has smiled upon us. I congratulate our players for winning three points, but I hope this match will be a lesson. Bursaspor was simply unlucky,and” he added.
h2 Points to comeh2 The late goal was crushing for Bursaspor, who had done a good job of harrying Beiiktaiand’s keeper Tolga Zengin throughout the match without managing to finish.
It is usually the case that the Black Eagles feel shortchanged by officials. Gandunei has often spoken out about the quality of officiating in Turkey — mostly as it results in his team being shortchanged. This time, it was the opposite. Gandunei felt his men were treated fairly and luck was on Beiiktaiand’s side, both in getting a goal and keeping the offensively minded Green Crocs out of their own net.
Portugal midfielder Josue Pesqueira had Bursasporand’s first big chance when he shot toward the back post from the corner of the penalty box. His shot was just wide.
Later Hungarian midfielder Balazs Dzsudzsak sprinted up the side of the pitch and delivered a cross into the box which Spanish midfielder Isaac Cuenca controlled into the path of defender ismail KandOybaii, but Tolga was right there to block the subsequent shot. Dzsudzsak also powered a low, long ball toward the net, but was denied.
Other chances came when Bekir Yilmaz headed a corner kick straight into the crossbar and Tolga plucked the ball out of danger, and when Slovakian midfielder Miroslav Stoch powered a shot just over the net from distance.
and”We had shots. If we had managed to make use of them, the result would have been different. I am happy with the good fight our players put up,and” Bursaspor coach Ertuirul Sailam said. and”If we keep fighting like we did in this game, we can win many more points than we did today. We actually did not deserve to lose,and” he added.
