It was pretty much the complete midfield display from Yalcin on Friday night, as he took care of his usual duties with gusto, winning 9/10 duels, 3/6 tackles, as well as making five ball recoveries and four clearances.

His passing was exceptional, too, as he completed 44/47 balls to team-mates.

Not only the above, but he turned into a goalscoring midfielder on the night with two goals within three minutes in the second half.

The two finishes were fairly similar coming from an area around the edge of the box, with the second coming a little further out.

The first was a lovely, guided first-time finish, while his goal to make it 3-2 (before Genclerbirligi equalised a minute later) was a rasper of a strike low into the bottom left corner.
