Victorious against Galatasaray (2-1) during the Istanbul derby on Sunday evening, Fenerbahçe, who had not won since October 3, had something to be happy about in view of the scenario.

Quickly led on the field of Galatasaray, Fenerbahçe, in fact, equalized in the 31st minute thanks to Mesüt Özil before Miguel Crespo released his team with a cross strike in the very last seconds of the match (90 + 4th).

A precious victory allowing Vitor Pereira's men to now occupy fifth place in the Superlig standings with 23 points in 13 matches, seven points behind leaders Trabzonspor. But a very sad news came to mar this evening of celebration

Thus, on the winning goal, a Fenerbahçe supporter who suffered a heart attack died, the Turkish news agency DHA reported yesterday. 60-year-old Ahmet Uysal was in the cafe run by his nephew in Alasehir at the time of the incident.

According to DHA, the 60-year-old, "fanatic of Fenerbahçe", exulted during the second goal of his team before collapsing. Taken to hospital, the supporter died despite the intervention of doctors. “When Fenerbahçe, whom he loved so much, scored in stoppage time, my uncle collapsed to the ground. He could not stand this excitement, ” said his nephew, Ercan Uysal.
