Hosting Bulgarian team Ludogorets in the UEFA Conference League Group H third week match, Fenerbahçe won the match 3-1 with the goals of Michy Batshuayi (1) and Miha Zajc (2).

A win for Fenerbahçe meant 3-for-3 for the Turkish side, and Batshuayi brought the lead to the hosts in the 42nd minute at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium in Istanbul.

Fred's through ball eventually left Batshuayi alone with the Ludogorets goalkeeper, and the Belgian made no mistake.

Fenerbahçe continued their pressure for a second goal and they found what they were looking for just seven minutes into the second half.

Dusan Tadic's classy one-touch through ball found Oosterwolde, who placed a low cross in front of the Ludogorets goal and Miha Zajc followed the parry and scored.

In the 65th minute, Ludogorets' corner created danger and Fenerbahçe defender Rodrigo Becao deflected a shot beyond his goalkeeper, bringing the score to 2-1.

In the dying minutes, Fenerbahçe scored the match-sealing goal, thanks to a quick counter orchestrated by İrfan Can Kahveci's curved through ball, followed by Sebastian Szymanski's brilliant dribbling and Zajc's shot.

With this victory, the Yellow Canaries reached three wins out of three matches in the competition and continued to lead Group H standings with 9 points, while Ludogorets placed third with 3 points.

The win also meant the 18th victory for the Turkish side this season in all competitions, maintaining the flawless run.
