Galatasaray wins title for 22nd time in 61st season of Turkish football league.
Galatasaray, the Lions, defeat 2018 Turkish Cup winners 3-1 in 4 Eylul Stadium in central Anatolian Sivas province.
The review comes as UEFA and Galatasaray reached a four-year settlement agreement after the Turkish football club was found to not be in compliance with the European football body’s break-even requirement.
Turkey's football teams Galatasaray, Fenerbahce, and Basaksehir are in the running for the league title, with final matches on Friday and Saturday.
Despite a 72-65 loss to Reyer Venezia on Wednesday, the final's first leg performance at home proves enough for Galatasaray to win the title on aggregate.
"Life may be going on for us, but there is a fire at homes of 11 Turkish fallen soldiers," says Bafetimbi Gomis of Galatasaray, a Turkish football club.
64-year-old Fatih Terim, also known as 'emperor', will replace sacked Croatian manager Igor Tudor, the Turkish club said.
Epureanu's goal moved Basaksehir to first place in Turkey's Super Lig with 30 points. Galatasaray had been leading the league for thirteen weeks, since round one, but they moved down to second spot after losing to Besiktas in round 14.
A goalless first half that saw two players sent off opened the game up with Trabzonspor putting two into the net before Galatasaray managed to pull one back in the dying minutes of the game to hand Trabzonspor a 2-1 victory.
Dutchman Jan Olde Riekerink was appointed as manager in March 2016 and leaves the club in third place on the Super league table five points behind log leaders, Besiktas.
