Football: Galatasaray Beat Ankaragucu İn League Opener

Reigning champs went down 0 1 but made a comeback to secure first three points of season with 3 1 score.

Reigning champs Galatasaray defeated newcomers Ankaragucu 3-1 in Turkish Spor Toto Super Lig's opening match in Ankara's Osmanli Stadium on Friday evening.

Galatasaray's coach Fatih Terim made some chances after defeat to Akhisarspor in Turkish Super Cup match last week. He benched Bafetimbi Gomis, Sofiane Feghouli and Younes Belhanda and started new transfer Henry Onyekuru with Eren Derdiyok at striker.

Newly promoted Ankaragucu found the season's first goal early as Mostapha El Kabir scored in the 7th minute thanks to a through pass that left him one-on-one with the goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

Galatasaray increased their pressure at the Ankaragucu half after going down 0-1.

'The Lions' found the equalizing goal in the 21st minute. Defender Serdar Aziz scored a header just near the goal after Ankaragucu failed to clear the corner cross.

Taking their chances in front of Ankaragucu goal, Galatasaray took the lead in the 30th minute thanks to an own goal by Ankaragucu's new transfer Bakary Kone.

Kone headed in the own goal to top right corner, trying to clear Mariano's curved cross.

Ankaragucu scored before the first half again with Mostapha El Kabir in the 37th minute, but it was disallowed as he was offside. The referee used the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system to cancel the goal.

The second half started with Ankaragucu trying to find the equalizing goal. Ankara team found a chance in the 54th minute, but Muslera was quick to clear the ball before Thievy Bifouma.

In the 63rd minute, Ankaragucu again found a clear chance inside the six yard box, but the shot went nearly outside.

In the stoppage time, Galatasaray increased the lead to 3-1 with striker Eren Derdiyok.

Despite their fans' non-stop support, Ankaragucu were not able to find the leveling goal to earn a point in their first Super Lig match in six years. -
