ANKARA

Besiktas earned a 1-0 win over MKE Ankaragucu in Thursday’s Turkish Super Lig match as Croatian central defender Domagoj Vida scored winning goal for his team in away match.

Cyle Larin’s first half goal was disallowed by the referee as the Besiktas forward fouled his opponent before his header.

However, Besiktas broke the deadlock in the minute of 61 as the visitors’ Croatian defender Domagoj Vida scored with a header.

Algerian winger Rachid Ghezzal assisted Vida.
