Fenerbahce Defeats Caykur Rizespor 2-1

Fenerbahce moved four points ahead of rivals Galatasaray with a 2-1 win over Caykur Rizespor on Saturday. Fenerbahce received a goal from Alex de Souza at the 45th minute and another goal by Tumer Metin at the 54th minute to go up 2-0. Caykur Rizespor scored at the 77th minute to cut the lead in half, but Fenerbahce ultimately prevailed.

The win gives Fener nine points and sole first place in the Turkcell Super Lig. Galatasaray finished the weekend with a 2-2 draw vs. Manisaspor and sits in second place with five points.

The game was somewhat overshadowed by the one player not playing today. Newest Fenerbahce defender Diego Lugano was in attendance to watch his new side win and plans to join the Canaries next week. Zico and his men were also without the services of Fabio Luciano, who is still nursing an injury.
