Ýstanbulspor 0-1 Fenerbahçe

Fabio Luciano`s header in the 13th minute earned us the three points in a tense game against problem-struck Istanbulspor today. The final seconds of the game saw an indirect free kick being given against us in the box, but a double save from the on-song Volkan kept the score at 1-0 before the final whistle moments later.
Marcio Nobre was also impressive in only his second competitive game for Fenerbahçe, as the Brazilian worked very hard up front and showed compatibility with strike partner Pierre van Hooijdonk.

Christoph Daum played Ivailo Petkov at left back, leaving out Ýsmail Güldüren and Sergei Rebrov due to the foreign player restrictions whilst fielding Fatih Akyel in the place of the suspended Stjepan Tomas in defence. Ümit Özat played a more wide role, leaving the central midfield`s defensive duties to Selçuk Þahin with assistance from Marco Aurelio.

The win gives us a good start to the second half of the league, taking our points to 38, five behind Beþiktaþ who have a game in hand to be played on Sunday night.
