Euro 08, the biggest European competition, ended a week ago, but it still takes up considerable space in the sports news. Spain dominated and won the tournament, but it is a generally accepted fact that Turkey was the most exciting team of the tournament. With a surprise semi-final qualification that came through 3 wins (2 in the group stages, one in the quarter finals), all of which came with last minute goals, the Turkish National Team had no boring games. So, how did this tournament of the best of the best in Europe affect Fenerbahce?

When this was coupled with the opponent being Kayserispor, one of the strongest teams outside the Big Three, it was inevitable for Fenerbahce to have a tough game. And unsurprisingly, Kayseri fought until the very last moment.

Long time followers of Fenerbahce know that Besiktas has always been a team that Fenerbahce struggled against. Even in the best days of Fenerbahce, Besiktas, especially in Inonu Stadium, never caved in easily, and always gave Fenerbahce something to worry about. The legendary Fenerbahce 3 - 4 Besiktas match in Sukru Saracoglu, which Besiktas completed without a goalkeeper, 3 years ago is a great example of this. Today, an era ends and a new one begins. Today, Fenerbahce caught up with Besiktas in terms of the games won at 118 matches apiece. Now, it is time for the Yellow Canaries to overtake their archrivals.
