Galatasaray had a set back on 55 minutes when Ahmet Calik was sent off.

Feghouli looked to have wrapped up all three points on 66 minutes after giving his side a two-goal lead.

The Yellow Reds were sailing towards a comfortable lead until Twumasi pulled one back on 78 minutes for the away side.

Then all chaos broke loose.

Deep into additional time Kayode scored but it was disallowed by VAR decision.

Galatasaray goalkeeper Okan Kocuk was penalised for time-wasting afterward which resulted in an indirect free-kick inside the penalty area being awarded to Gaziantep in the 15th minute of additional time.

Gaziantep ended up winning a penalty which Maxim converted with what was the final kick of the game.

Galatasaray have now dropped points in their first two games back from the coronavirus disruptions.

The draw saw the Lions fall eight points behind league leaders Basaksehir.
