A goal from Drogba in extra time earned Galatasaray a 1-0 victory over Fenerbahçe on Sunday in the Turkey’s Super cup.
This crunch match between the Champion of the Sϋper Lig and the winner of the Cup Ziraat of Turkey at the Kadir Has Stadium of Kayserie was also the stage for the 375th derby between the two Istanbul’s great rivals.
Despite enjoying a numerical advantage for the last half hour of the encounter after the sending-off of defender Bruno Alves, Galatasaray could not seal the deal in the 90 minutes of the game, going into extra time with the final whistle blowing on a goalless draw.
The Elephants’ skipper ultimately freed “Aslan” in the 99th minute on a Hakan Balta’s cross, getting the upper hand on Cameroonian Pierre Webo to head the winner home.
Drogba earned the Istanbul’s giants their 13th Turkey’s Super cup.
