– Genclerbirligi beat Lions thanks to extra-time counter attack goal

Galatasaray have lost the leaders spot in Turkey’s Super Lig after being defeated by Genclerbirligi 1-0 on Monday evening in the capital Ankara.

Genclerbirligi managed to topple Galatasaray thanks to an extra-time goal at the 91st minute, when Dutch winger Elvis Manu carried the ball on a counter attack, allowing Alper Uludag to sent the ball into the net on a one-on-one situation with goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

The goal gave Genclerbirligi a much-needed victory, as the team is trying to avoid relegation.
