Fenerbahçe looked down and out but Diego scored on 81 minutes to give his side a glimmer of hope.

Any hopes of a fightback looked to have been extinguished when Mehmet Topuz was sent off for stamping on Mossoro.

 

The Yellow Canaries did however, manage to take another step towards a memorable comeback when Pierre Webo equalised just seven minutes later.

Fenerbahçe pushed on for the winning goal but were hit on a counter attack forcing Bruno Alves into saving the ball off the line with his hand.

Alves was shown a direct red card as was left-back Caner Erkin for dissent and Başakşehir were awarded a penalty.

Başakşehir were awarded a penalty but Batdal missed the chance to score a hat-trick when he sent the ball over the bar.

There was yet more late drama as Webo was sent off for a reckless flying kick incident.
