Basaksehir and Januzaj join Batshuayi’s Fenerbahçe in Turkish Cup final

Istanbul Basaksehir qualified as the second team for the final of the Turkish Cup on Thursday evening. For the biggest divisions, a 2-2 draw after extra time was enough in their second leg of the semi-finals visiting Ankaragücü, after they had won the first leg 1-0 three weeks ago.


Home player Ali Sowe (11.) made sure that everything could be redone with a quick goal, just past the hour Serdar Gurler (61.) pricked on the other side. Anastasios Chatzigiovanis (90.) dragged out extensions in extremis. Nihad Mujakic let the host down in the 97th minute with two yellow cards in the same phase of play. Substitute Philippe Paulin Keny (109.) took advantage of the numerical superiority and eventually won the ticket for the final. Adnan Januzaj started in the base for the visitors and was replaced after 96 minutes.

On Wednesday, Fenerbahçe already qualified for the final battle by beating cup holder Sivasspor 3-0 in its second leg. Michy Batshuayi played a leading role with a goal and an assist. The first leg had ended 0-0.

The final will take place on Sunday 11 June. Fenerbahçe will then make a shot at his seventh cup triumph, while Basaksehir will be chasing a first overall victory.
