Istanbul Basaksehir knocked out of Europa League

Istanbul Basaksehir eliminated from Europa League

The Super Lig side were defeated in extra time and said good bye to this season’s Europa League.

Istanbul Basaksehir couldn’t find a way past English Premier League outfit Burnley on Thursday evening during the second leg of the tie in the 3rd Qualifying Round.

Like the first game, the score was 0-0 after 90 minutes. The game went into extra-time and in the 97th minute, Burnley took the lead via Jack Cork to make it 1-0 and hold on for the win.

Interestingly, there were no away fans at Turf Moor due to Basaksehir deciding not to sell any tickets for the return leg in England.
