By Nathan L. Redd

*Fenerbahce's win on Saturday marks the first time in six years that Besiktas has lost at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium.

*Fenerbahce's win gives them a three-game winning streak over Besiktas, including the Turkish Super Cup.

*Rustu Recber and Mehmet Yozgatli are now 0-2 against their former team.

*The match featured several players facing their old teams. Marcio Nobre, Mehmet Yozgatli, and Rustu Recber of Besiktas all previously played for Fenerbahce - none of the trio played Saturday. Tumer Metin of Fenerbahce previously played for Besiktas and came into today's game as a substitute for Alex de Souza.
