Turkish deputy commander, Istanbul Başakşehir, went to Belgian Bruges in the third leg of the Champions League, but he did not get to the base of the European League. In a duel with the Bulgarian champion he was considered a favorite, but in 90 minutes he was unable to score a single goal and with Ludogorcz Razgrad he broke with ease without goals. In the heavy qualifying group C he recorded an unexpected loss, on the contrary, guests will definitely take the point.
The home team entered into the game with great determination and the lead came in the 12th minute. A pass to the side pulled the defense out of position which let Epureanu slip through on the right and was very close to protecting the visitors’ right side, but his shot from the right glanced off the top of the bar to fall behind the net. Ten minutes later, for the first time, the biggest offensive star Ludogorce, the experienced twenty-two-year-old Brazilian Wanderson.
Goralski released Cicinha on the right wing, and with his soft waist he found the head of Wanderson. Bautista’s Babacan was shown a yellow card after 85 minutes for slicing down an opponent. In a further three minutes he presented himself with a beautiful action from the half of the Lukoki course and worked his way to a dangerous shot, but Babacan pulled out of his repertoire another great procedure and the ball went over the top pole.
After the change of sides, the Turkish unit was pushed to the end. In the 50th minute, the star-shaped Tugan striker Emmanuel Adebayor showed his skillful goal to score captain Belözoglua, but the prominent goalie Broun did not fire. Approximately after an hour of play, Broun hesitated at the turn and offered a chance to Mossor. The Brazilian midfielder shot from a sharp angle and Broun was lucky to have been hit by the ball.
As time went on, both teams concentrated more on the defensive and did not push the attack so much, the Istanbul club bore a final pass. The guests were in their best chance for the second act a quarter of an hour before the end, but Cicinha did not have any goal parameters and the balloon flew about a meter above the bar. Başakşehir is coming to Braga in the next round and a tough nut waits for Razgrad to try to surprise the German Hoffenheim.
