But, after that, they lost their control on the game and Fenerbache fired four goals in a space of 29 minutes. Vaslui took the lead pretty early in the match and got the opportunity to double the lead in the 52nd minute of the match. But, the team wasn’t able to take the advantage of the penalty kick. That was the turning point of the match. After that, the Fenerbache players played very aggressively. Stoch, who came to play as a substitute, scored the leveler in the 61st minute of the match. Kuyt took Fenerbahce ahead by scoring his first goal in the match in the 71st minute. He made the score 3-1 by scoring his second goal a few minutes later.
