Fenerbahce and Besiktas to complete abandoned game

Fenerbahce and Besiktas had their game abandoned.

Fenerbahce and Besiktas will complete the remaining 33 minutes of their abandoned Turkish Cup semifinal clash next Thursday.

The Istanbul clubs, who drew 2-2 in March's first leg, were unable to finish the return fixture at the Sucru Saracoglu Stadium on April 23 as trouble in the stands spread to the benches and the tunnel.

Besiktas coach Senol Gunes was struck on the head by an object thrown from the crowd and the game was called off by the referee in the 57th minute, with the second-leg scoreline locked at 0-0.

According to a statement on Fenerbahce's website, the Turkish Football Federation has now ordered the remainder of the tie to be played behind closed doors on Thursday, May 3.

Akhisar Belediyespor, who knocked out Super Lig leaders Galatasaray, await the winners in the final, which is scheduled to be contested on Tuesday, May 8.
