Galatasaray recorded their first win under Mustafa Denizli during his second reign as the Lions manager.

The Istanbul Giants looked short of confidence and retreated into their own half trying to pick off Bursaspor on the counter attack in the first half. The visitor’s created a handful of chances and may that feel deserved at least a goal from the opening 45 minutes.

Galatasaray’s experienced manager Denizli must of had words at half time as the Lion’s came out a different side. The former Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski got the home side off the mark with a powerful shot into the bottom corner in the 68th minute.

Yasin Oztekin doubled his sides lead 12 minutes later while Podolski turned provider in the 90th to set up Burak Yilmaz.

Galatasaray remain in third place with 26 points in 14 games and take on FC Astana during the week in the UEFA Champions league.
