In the first match of the UEFA Europa League Play-Off tour, Fenerbahçe defeated Finland’s HJK Helsinki 1-0. 20-year-old young player Muhammed Gümüşkaya scored the yellow-dark blue team’s goal. Luiz Gustavo, who met the ball outside the penalty area with Sosa’s pass in the 19th minute, was hit hard by the goalkeeper and controlled the leather ball in two moves.
At 22, Saksela raised the leather ball into the penalty area with a free kick from the left wing. Finding the ball behind the six pass points in front of him, which the defense could not clear, Jair’s hard hit went out from the leather round top. In the attack of Fenerbahce, which developed in the 28th, the ball went out from the round side in the shot of Mesut Özil, who met the ball on the back post in the middle of Sosa’s penalty area. The first half of the match ended 0-0.
RETURN TO THE WEEK
Osayi-Samuel, who entered the penalty area with dribbles in the 51st, was able to pass the ball from the penalty spot, and İrfan Can Kahveci’s right foot returned the ball from the defense. At 65, Fenerbahçe took the lead. In Ferdi Kadıoğlu’s pass, Muhammed met the ball outside the penalty area on the left diagonal and hit the ball hard from the hard point: 1-0. There was no other position in the match and Fenerbahce won 1-0 from the field. The return match between the two teams will be played on Thursday, August 26 in Finland.
Fenerbahce, who missed the match due to INJURY, experienced a double shock during the match. İrfan Can Kahveci and Filip Novak were injured in the 2nd half and could not continue the game. While İrfan Can was replaced by Ferdi Kadıoğlu, Novak was replaced by 16-year-old Arda Güler.
MUHAMMED HAS A STAMP
Muhammed Gümüşkaya, who was trained in FENERBAHÇE’s infrastructure and entered the game in the 62nd minute yesterday, made a great shot from the outside of the penalty area with his left foot in his first meeting with the ball and became the star of the match by scoring the only goal of his team.
FENERBAHÇE’s coach Vitor Pereira gave a chance to midfielder Miha Zajc in the striker line, who could not sign Mbwana Samatta in the absence of the injured strikers Enner Valencia and Serdar Dursun.
17TH EUROPEAN MATCH WITH PEREIRA
Fenerbahce played the 17th European match under the management of coach Vitor Pereira.
