Last night in the Europa League, Fenerbahce won 1-0 against Belarusian side BATE Borisov. Cristian Baroni scored the only goal with a penalty.
But the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium was spectator less as fans were banned from attending the game by UEFA due to their mischievous act in the game against Borussia Monchengladbach. And one would think the would progress without any stoppages due to disturbances from the crowd, as that factor had been removed by the ban.
But, the match did get held up for about 3 minutes in the first half as the fans lit up parachute flares outside the ground. And some flares managed to enter the ground. Crazy scenes. And cheekily enough, their was a banner in the stadium which read ‘AS IF WE WERE HERE’.
All the fans were watching the game outside the stadium in a big screen. And everyone went crazy when Fenerbahce scored the goal.
