An action-packed 12th week ended in Turkey's Super Lig with Kasımpaşa defeating Karabükspor 2-0 on Monday evening.

The weekend's most-anticipated match was played on Saturday, when Basaksehir trashed leaders Galatasaray with a lopsided 5-1 victory at Fatih Terim Stadium.

Third-placed Besiktas lost two critical points in the title race against Akhisarspor with a 0-0 draw at Vodafone Park.

Fenerbahçe were back to their winning ways with a 4-1 win over Sivasspor on Sunday evening, their first win in four weeks.
