Akturkoglu now has six goals and four assists in 23 appearances for Galatasaray in all competitions this season.

The Lions looked in control until Mesut Ozil found an equaliser.

The former Arsenal man ran 70 metres before slotting the ball past Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

Ozil ended up scoring his most important goal for the Yellow Canaries since joining last January.

Fenerbahce looked in trouble after going down to 10 men when Tisserand was sent off for a second yellow card offence.

The Lions looked to have won the game when Mbaye Diagne scored late in the second half.

The goal was ruled out after a VAR check.

Then came the final twist. Miguel Crespo ended up scoring the winner in the fourth minute of additional time.

The victory moved the Yellow Canaries into 5th place on 23 points, seven behind leaders Trabzonspor.
