Henry Onyekuru's strike completed Galatasaray's 3-1 comeback victory against Fenerbahce in Sunday's Intercontinental derby.

The stoppage-time goal was the Nigerian's first strike for Galatasaray since his return from loan from Monaco in January.

Onyekuru was in action for 90 minutes in the tense encounter which saw Morocco's Younes Belhanda, Fenerbahce coach Ersun Yanal and midfielder Deniz Turuc sent off in the second half.

It was a historic win for Galatasaray who have not won a game against their rivals at the Ulker Stadium since 1999.

The result pushed Galatasaray to second in the Super Lig table, level on 45 points with third-placed SSivasspor and leaders Trabzonspor who have a game in hand.
