FENERBAHÇE TAKES REVENGE ON OLYMPIAKOS PIRAEUS
İSTANBUL. Turkey's top scorer Tuncay Şanlı again did not fail to score a hat trick as Fenerbahçe of İstanbul beat Olympiakos Piraeus 4-2 in a warm-up soccer friendly here.
Şanlı, who scored 29 goals as his team won the Football League title last year, opened his series with a rocketing header in the 10th minute before 55,000 fans at the Fenerbahçe Stadium on the Asian side of this city.
Striker Alexios Alexandris levelled for Olympiakos when he converted a penalty in the 23rd minute. The penalty was awarded after Marco Aurelio had tackled Andreas Niniadis.
Receiving a pass from Van Hooijdonk, Tuncay made the score 2-1 in the 32nd minute and added a third two minutes later. Van Hooijdonk, after missing numerous scoring chances, recorded the hosts' fourth goal from close range when he dribbled past two Olympiakos defenders and goalie Angelos Georgiou in the 64th minute.
Defender Giorgios Anatolakis was sent off for arguing with the linesman and for disputing the referee's decision. He had signed a two-year contract for Olympiakos, when his own team was relegated to the second division last year. He is expected to face a three-match suspension under the new FIFA official rules.
Alexandris scored the visitors' second goal with a somersault shot in the 83rd minute when the Fenerbahçe defence failed to clear the ball in the penalty area.
Olympiakos had won the first exhibition game 3-2 in Piraeus on Monday.
