Late rally floors AIK

Fenerbahçe SK 3-1 AIK Solna (Agg: 6-4) Late goals confirm Turkish side's progress.

Fenerbahçe SK scored twice in a dramatic final 16 minutes to defeat AIK Solna 3-1 in Istanbul tonight and so secure a 6-4 aggregate victory to take them through to the second round of the UEFA Cup.

Bright opening
The Turkish side were the better organised team in the opening 45 minutes and started positively with Argentinian international Ariel Ortega and Serhat Akin both coming close, while Ümit Özat’s long-range was well saved by AIK goalkeeper Daniel Andersson.

Washington foiled
Fenerbahçe thought they had opened the scoring after 22 minutes when Brazilian striker Washington had the ball in the net after Ümit Özat’s pass, but his effort was ruled offside.

Quick exchange
However, seven minutes later the pressure paid off and the Turkish side took the lead when Ali Günes got on to the end of Ortega’s corner and placed his shot to Andersson’s right. But the lead last barely 60 seconds, as AIK launched a rare counterattack that finished with Daniel Hoch’s calm strike to level the score.

Johnson follows up
With Fenerbahçe scoring three times in the first leg in Stockholm, a game that ended 3-3, AIK still needed to score again to restore their hopes but it was Fenerbahçe who showed the greater intent in the second half. Their adventurous approach was rewarded after 74 minutes when Samuel Johnson scored at the second attempt after his initial powerful shot had been parried by goalkeeper Andersson.

Win secured
The victory was completed in the dying minutes when Tuncay Sanli burst into the penalty area before passing to Serhat Akin, who slotted home from close range to great excitement and relief.
