Reigning Turkish Super League champions Galatasaray beat Genclerbirligi 4-1 at the Turk Telekom Arena to move into 1st place.

Genclerbirligi actually took the lead when El Kabir scored on 37 minutes and went into the half time break with the lead.

Galatasaray responded soon after with Bilal Kisa scoring a rare header five minutes after the interval and Chedjou gave the Lions the lead with another head just a few minutes later.

Second half substitute Yasin Oztekin put the game out of sight in the last 10 minutes and Burak Yilmaz scored a 90th minute penalty to guarantee all three-points.
