Galatasaray 1 - 0 Fenerbahçe

Galatasaray SK closed the gap at the top of the Turkish Super League to just two points after a battling victory against arch-rivals and leaders Fenerbahçe SK at the Ali Sami Yen stadium.

Necati goal
Necati Ates scored the only goal of the game ten minutes into the second half after picking up the loose ball following a tussle between Fenerbahçe's Fabio Luciano and Hakan Sükür. The Turkey striker rounded Rüstü Reçber before slotting in his tenth goal of the season. It was little more than Gheorghe Hagi's side deserved after dominating the first half with Necati, Sabri Sarioglu, Hakan Sükür and Hasan Sas all going close.

Fabio Luciano dismissal
The influential Hasan Sas was forced from the field with an injured elbow and Necati followed on 77 minutes after sustaining a head injury. Fenerbahçe posed a threat in the closing stages but the home side hung on and their task was made easier when Fabio Luciano was dismissed with three minutes remaining. Fenerbahçe remain on 40 points, just two clear of Galatasaray, who themselves lie just ahead of Trabzonspor.
