Turks now just one match away from their first-ever European final.
Fenerbahce head coach Aykut Kocoman said that he was satisfied and pleased with his side’s performance in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final against Benfica, which the Turks won 1-0 in Instanbul on Thursday night.
Egemen Korkmaz’s header 18 minutes from full time was enough to overcome the Portuguese league leaders ahead of the decisive return fixture at the Stadium of Light in Lisbon on Thursday.
The winners will play either Chelsea or Basel in the final at the Amsterdam ArenA next month, with the West London club leading 2-1 from the first leg in Switzerland.
