Video: Galatasaray 1-1 Lazio – Lions extend unbeaten home run to 15

Galatasaray were held to a 1-1 draw against Lazio at the Turk Telekom Arena in the Europa League Round of 32 first-leg tie.

The Lions took an early lead from the most unlikely of goalscorer. Sabri Sarioglu scored his first European goal since 2009 to put Galatasaray ahead on 13 minutes.

The lead was however, short lived as Lazio made the most of some sloppy Galatasaray defending to score from a set-piece.

After a lively start the game became stifled with both sides playing at a low tempo seemingly content with the draw.
