Victor Moses Stars In Six-Goal Derby Thriller
Victor Moses had his first taste of the Istanbul derby on Monday night and though it was dramatic, the former Nigeria international made little or no contribution to the outcome.
Fenerbahçe scored three second-half goals in 12 minutes to salvage a 3-3 draw with Besiktas in the Turkish league after Moses had been pulled out.
Besiktas was leading 3-0 before the halftime thanks to Gökhan Gönül's opener and Burak Yilmaz's brace.
In the 10th minute of the showdown, Besiktas took the lead when right back Gönül fired a close range volley from inside the box.
Striker Yilmaz converted from the penalty spot in the 18th minute to double Besiktas' lead.
Right before the end of the first half Besiktas made it three when Yilmaz netted a goal following a fast break.
Moses was on all through the first half before he was pulled off for Ghanaian star Andre Ayew.
In a dramatic fashion, Fenerbahçe managed to turn the tables on the Black Eagles, scoring three goals within the span of 12 minutes to secure a 3-3 draw.
Miha Zajc, Sadik Çiftpinar and then Hasan Ali Kaldirim all found the back of the net to rescue a point for the Yellow Canaries.
Following the derby, Besiktas now sits in the third spot on the league table with 40 points, 11 points behind league leaders Medipol Basaksehir.
Fenerbahçe, on the other hand, is currently having its worst season in the league's history, in 14th place with 25 points.
