In Turkey, a young football team made it to the top spot in the Super League.

The football team of the city on the Bosphorus "Istanbul Basaksehir" for the first time in the history of national football became the champion of the country. She defeated Artyom Kravets Kayserispor with a score of 1:0 and, after losing to Trabzonspor, won gold ahead of schedule, making history. It all happened in the match of the thirty-third round of the Turkish Super League.

For the first time in a decade, an underdog wins instead of one of the Big Three. We are talking about the famous clubs Fenerbahce, Besiktas and Galatasaray. There is another interesting detail: Istanbul Basaksehir is the youngest club of all Super League participants. He was barely 20 years old, and he has come a long way from amateur football to professional super matches in the elite division. The club's coach is Buruk Okan.

Be that as it may, the young team is only sixth in the list of the Turkish championship after Galatasaray, Fenerbahce, Besiktas, Trabzonspor and Bursaspor. The absolute leader in gold is Galatasaray: it has 22 wins. It is curious that in the club the glory of the winners was shared by two players who previously played for Russian teams. We are talking about Alexander Epureanu, who fought "in a past life" for Dynamo and Martin Skrtel, who was once a defender of Zenit.
