Jeremain Lens

Fenerbahce beat Kasimpasa 3-1 at the Recep Tayyip Erdogan stadium in the Super Lig on Saturday to move three points closer towards league safety.

The home side actually took the lead after Roman scored on just 13 minutes.

Fenerbahce equalised after 20 minutes when Valbuena setup Eljif Elmas. The initial goal was ruled offside but the decision was overturned by VAR.

Valbuena put the visitors ahead on 72 minutes with a well executed free-kick to wrap up a man of the match display.

Roberto Soldado scored the third and final goal to secure all three points just minutes later.

The victory moved Fenerbahce into 12th position on 37 points, seven points clear of the relegation zone.

The Yellow Canaries take on last placed Akhisar next in the Super Lig. A victory could be enough to ensure league safety.
