Galatasaray, Anderlecht draw in Champions League

September 16, 2014

ISTANBUL (AP) — Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz scored in stoppage time to seal a 1-1 draw for his side in their Champions League opener against Anderlecht in Group D on Tuesday.

Yilmaz spared the hosts’ the embarrassment of defeat in the first round of matches, netting in the 91st minute after Aurelien Chedjou rounded defenders before feeding a deft pass into the Turkish international’s path.

After a goalless first half, Anderlecht’s Dennis Praet knocked in a low shot from the edge of the box in the 52nd.

In the group’s other game, German side Borussia Dortmund beat English club Arsenal 2-0 to lead the way in the group. The draw leaves Belgian side Anderlecht in second with Galatasaray in third and the Gunners bottom.
