Akhisarspor humiliate Galatasaray 3-0

Akigo wrecked The Lions with their superb performance at home, dismantling the Super Lig champions 3-0.

Galatasaray were stunned on Sunday evening with a 3-0 loss to Akhisarspor played at Akhisar Arena in the Aegean region city of the same name.

Akhisarspor found three goals in the second half to earn their first win in the league, bucking a five-match winless streak to start the season.

Galatasaray wasted a vital chance to take the lead in late first half, as Garry Rodrigues missed his penalty kick.

Akhisarspor’s first half goal was ruled offside after the referee checked with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system.

Tireless Dutch winger Elvis Manu was the key player for his team, breaking the deadlock in the 51st minute and then winning a penalty kick for his team in the 80th minute.

Guray Vural scored the penalty to make the score 2-0 for Akhisarspor, and Mustafa Yumlu added one more to the tally after goalkeeper Fernando Muslera’s mistake in the 84th minute.

Galatasaray suffered their second loss of the season and are now with 12 points,  losing the leaders’ spot to Istanbul Basaksehir, who drew 0-0 with Bursaspor to move up to 13 points.
