While officially saying goodbye to the cup, Fenerbahçe also suffered one more of the most unbelievable losses ever against Yeni Malatyaspor, bringing their success in the group stage to three losses out of three games played.
In the 24th minute, Malatyaspor's Cem had an opportunity with a center pass, however it was Okan that scored the goal into his own goalpost, bringing last night's hosts up by one. Fenerbahçe retaliated fast with a corner shot by Stoch, which made its way to Niang with Lugano scoring the fast recovery, bringing the score to 1-1.
It wasn't until the 72nd minute that their fate was written with Cem coming face to face with Mert and shooting the ball right between the Fenerbahçe goalie's legs to score the victory goal, bringing Malatyaspor up at 2-1.
