The Turkish side Fenerbahce began their title defending season by securing a hard fought 3-2 victory over Karabukspor. It was a match that saw plenty of goals being scored from side to side in a thrilling opening game of the season with Fenerbahce just barely scraping out a victory and kicking off the new campaign in full force.
Fenerbahce are the current champions of Turkey as they lifted the Turkish League trophy in the last season by having 9 more points than their nearest rivals Besiktas which came in 2nd place.
Pierre Achille Webo gave Fenerbahce the early lead as he scored at the 8th minute but the lead did not last very long as Karabukspor responded with Dominick Kumbela as the 30 years old forward equalized the match 1-1 a few minutes before the first half reached its end.
The second period of the game kicked off with both teams charging upfront in search for a quick goal and Moussa Sow restored the lead for Fenerbahce but Karabukspor once more tied the match up after Michal Kadlec scored an unfortunate own goal which gave his opponents hopes of ending the match with at least 1 point but Fenerbahce never stopped attacking Karabukspor as they wanted to kick-off the new season by capturing a victory and indeed it happened as Pierre Achille Webo netted the winning goal for Fenerbahce.
It’s a good way to start the season for the team of Ismail Kartal as they are determined to protect their league title and capture their 20th title and become the club with most Turkish League trophies ever. It will not be an easy task for them as Galatasaray and Besiktas are eager on taking the silverware away from Fenerbahce.
