The Istanbul giants make seven passes inside 10 seconds before Özyakup buried the ball in the bottom corner in the last minute of the game to take home all three points and move back into first place.

Özyakup now has three goals and five assists in all competitions this season under the stewardship of Şenol Güneş who replaced Slaven Bilic at the start of the season.

The young midfielder rose through the ranks of the Arsenal youth setup before joining Beşiktaş in 2012 on a £500,000 move.

Beşiktaş moved into first place overtaking Fenerbahçe following the victory over the Green Crocodiles.
