Besiktas v Galatasaray
Besiktas won Turkey's Super Lig in 2015/16 with Galatasaray 28 points behind in sixth spot

Turkish champions Besiktas fought back from 2-0 down to clinch a home draw with Galatasaray in the Istanbul derby.

Goals by Switzerland striker Eren Derdiyok and winger Bruma gave Galatasaray a commanding lead.

Brazilian defender Marcelo started the comeback after half-time before forward Cenk Tosun sparked wild celebrations with a 78th-minute equaliser.

A five-year ban on away fans attending football derby matches in Istanbul was lifted for the game.

Both clubs have 11 points from five games but Besiktas are second in the Super Lig table, one place above their rivals, on goal difference.
