Fenerbahce 4-0 B36

In the first leg of UEFA Champions League qualifying, Fenerbahce defeated Faroe Islands' B36 by a score of 4-0 on Wednesday. Fenerbahce had goals from Stephen Appiah, Tumer Metin, Tuncay Sanli, and Onder Turaci. Tumer was a late addition to the starting lineup, as was Rustu Recber instead of Volkan Demirel in goal.

The fans appeared boisterous, but their hearts were obviously with the Yellow Canaries' Deniz Baris whose wife passed away earlier in the week from an accident at her home in Germany. Signs graced Sukru Saracoglu proclaiming the fans' affection for Deniz and his family.

New Fener manager Zico picks up his first-ever win in Turkiye and his first in the Champions League. Fener has a short turn-around time of six days before the second leg matchup against B36 Tuesday in the Faroe Islands. More analysis on the game to come...
