Besiktas miss chance to boost lead
In a week Basaksehir, Galatasaray, Fenerbahce have all gone winless, Besiktas follow trend, draw 0-0 with Antalyaspor
Besiktas have drawn 0-0 with Antalyaspor in an away match in Turkey's Spor Toto Super Lig's match week 25 on Sunday evening.
The match in Antalya saw two teams missing out on several chances in the first half, as teams could not capitalize on the positions and were unable to break the deadlock.
The second half did not see any change, as Besiktas found themselves playing with ten men in back-to-back matches when striker Vincent Aboubakar was sent off at 64th minute.
The red card was Aboubakar's second one in four days as the Cameroonian was sent off against Olympiakos on Thursday night in an UEFA Europa League clash.
In a week which second-place Medipol Basaksehir, third-place Galatasaray and fourth-place Fenerbahce had all lost points, Besiktas also followed the trend and dropped two crucial points in title race.
On Sunday afternoon, Medipol Basaksehir drew 3-3 with Karabukspor, missing out the chance to topple league leaders Besiktas from their seat.

Trabzonspor's goals came from Dame N'Doye at 23rd minute and Yusuf Yazici at 49th minute, as Galatasaray's two-game winning streak came to an end.
