The best possible finale

In the Istanbul derby, Galatasaray soundly beat Fenerbahçe (3-0). Juan Mata’s team, already champion, closed its participation in the Super League. Zaniolo with a brace and Icardi scored the goals.

Galatasaray SK closed their participation in the 2022/23 Super League in style. The victory against Ankaragücü (1-4) had sealed the title for Juan Mata’s team, but a clash against Fenerbahçe is never irrelevant. The final 3-0 with which the Istanbul derby ended is an unbeatable finishing touch to an excellent season.

The long-awaited appointment at the NEF Stadyumu, corresponding to matchday 37, featured Zaniolo. The Italian scored two goals (minutes 28 and 79) and forced the foul that sent Luan Peres off. Icardi, in the 71 minute, achieved the other target for Okan’s team, which reaches 85 points. Mata came on from the bench replacing Lucas Torreira and played the final part of the game.

The rival in the final day of the league was Hatayspor, which withdrew from the competition in February when it was seriously affected by the earthquake. For this reason, the victory against Fenerbahçe means the -unbeatable- farewell to the tournament for Galatasaray.
