Soocer: Galatasaray win to close on 21st Turkish title

ANKARA (Reuters) - Istanbul giants Galatasaray beat Yeni Malatyaspor 2-0 at home on Saturday to close in on their 21st Turkish league title.

With two games left, Turkey’s most successful club lead the standings with 72 points, three ahead of Basaksehir and six clear of arch-rivals Fenerbahce.

Galatasaray opened the scoring in the first minute after Garry Rodrigues won the ball in the midfield and passed the ball for Younes Belhanda to score.

French striker Bafetimbi Gomis netted the second after 12 minutes, his 28th league goal of the season.
