Start of the second part!

Fenerbahçe arrives at half-time winning in all fairness. Although the first danger signal was given by Slovácko – Merchas Doski hit the post after 2 minutes -, the truth is that Jorge Jesus’ team, after that, started to dominate the match and, even without having moments of great brilliance (with the exception of Lincoln’s goal…), clearly deserved to take the lead.

Enner Valencia and Miha Zajc gave the first warnings, and, shortly after, Emre Mor substantiated Turkish rule. In the 17th minute, and after an assist from Lincoln, the 25-year-old Turk had a shot placed for the first in the afternoon at Sukru Saracoglu, in Istanbul.

The match then took on a warmer tune, with some offensive flashes from both sides, but without both goals being truly in danger.

Until, already in the period of compensation of the first half, Lincoln, with a direct free-kick, made the second for Fenerbahçe: the Brazilian midfielder, who in the last off-season changed Santa Clara for the Turkish emblem, took the exact measurements in the goal of Filip Nguyen and placed the ball in the upper left corner. A goal to watch… and review.

Interval! Fenerbahçe 2 Slovakia 0.

45+1 minute: Fenerbahce scores! Lincoln’s direct free-kick, dropped to the right flank, with the Brazilian player taking his shot into the top left corner of Filip Nguyen’s goal, who had no chance of defence. A great goal from the former Santa Clara midfielder. 2-0.

One minute of additional time minimum in this first half.

27 minutes: Yellow card to Stanislav Hofmann.

19 minutes: Diego Rossi’s strong shot, from outside the area, for Filip Nguyen’s safe defense.

17 minutes: Fenerbahce scores! Pass from Diego Rossi to Lincoln, the Brazilian, already inside the area, works well over an opponent, endorsing the spherical to Emre Mor who, with his right foot, shoots placed for 1-0.

7 minutes: Great opportunity for Fenerbahçe! Miha Zajc, after an excellent individual play, where he took several opponents out of the way, flexed from the right to the center and, already inside the area, shot the right post of Filip Nguyen’s goal.

5 minutes: Lincoln cross from the left, with a trivela, and Enner Valencia, at the edge of the small area, heads slightly over the bar of Filip Nguyen’s goal.

2 minutes: Great opportunity for Slovácko! Crossed shot by Mercas Doski, slightly dropped to the left flank, with the ball hitting the right post of Osmar Cetin’s goal and going out through the end line.
