A defensive error cost the hosts an own goal early on, as flamboyant winger Armindo Bruma's pass into the six-yard box was sent into the net by Bursaspor defender Ertugrul Ersoy.

As the half-time whistle loomed, the Istanbulites' high-tempo play proved too much for Bursaspor, with Bruma finishing in the 45th minute for a 2-0 lead.

Galatasaray continued the scoring spree in the second half, with Ahmet Calik contributing in 58' and Lukas Podolski in 60', before Yasin Oztekin's goal decided the final score in 89'.

The win raises Galatasaray's points to 52, cementing their hold on the fourth place.

Bursaspor are stuck at the 13th spot with 35 points, leading manager Mutlu Topcu to announce his resignation shortly after the game.
