Galatasaray defeated Lokomotiv Moscow 1-0 in a UEFA Europa League Group E encounter on Thursday.
At Lokomotiv Stadium, the game got off to a fast start, with both teams fouling one other many times.
Neither team was able to score or hit the target until the last minutes of the first half.
With the video assistance referee system unavailable in the second half, the Lions made many failed efforts despite the tough play.
Galatasaray striker Kerem Akturkoglu scored in the 82nd minute after coming on as a second-half substitute.
With this victory, Galatasaray conceded no goals in its first three matches in European cups for the first time and took the Group E lead with seven points.
