clear direction given by the turks
In the first fifteen minutes both the teams felt each other and tried to control the game. The provincial club of Istanbul became more and more successful in this. For Istanbul, left-hander Hasan Ali Kaldirim created as many chances as possible before scoring the goal. In the 26th minute, Stefano Okaka and Deniz Turuk pressed the ball immediately after the loss, passing the ball to X-.Fenerbahce Pro Aye, who hammered into the right corner from the left edge of the penalty area. With this result we went to the dressing room.

clear results in the end
In the second half, the Emre Belozoglu team did not give up and continued to try to disrupt the Scots’ build-up play as quickly as possible. However, Turk’s second goal did not come until the 67th minute after a corner kick from Turuk, whose cross was found by substitute Yusuf Nadishmi, who led the ball from seven yards. After the hit, “Heart”‘s resistance broke down and “Owls” found more room to combine. In the 75th minute, Italy striker Stefano Okaka scored an excellent single against five Scottish defenders, his shot being deflected by defender Stephen Kingsley. Unfortunately, the brave striker did not receive a UEFA-recognized goal, so the goal was counted as his own.
Six minutes later, German-Turkish Berke Ozcan was also on the goalscorer’s list, when his shot from a good fourteen meters like the third goal deviated and went into goal. In the closing stages, Busaksehir managed the game to seal victory and lay the groundwork for potential progress. On 15 September the Turkish representative meets Fiorentina in Istanbul to score three more points in the group stage.
