The Lions made a good start to the match at the Nef Stadium as Belgian forward Dries Mertens scored the opener in the 11th minute, and Galatasaray’s Argentine star Mauro Icardi finished in the box after a mistake of Alanyaspor defense in the 22nd minute.

Galatasaray’s French right-back Sacha Boey was shown a red card in the minute 31 for a professional foul on Alanyaspor’s Daniel Candeias.

In addition, Mertens and Icardi netted one goal each in the first half, but they were both ruled out for offside.
