In the second half, the Yellow Canaries' attacking midfielder Giuliano's header cut Akhisar's lead to 2-1, but the Manisa team responded with their own header, thanks to Daniel Larsson.

Forward Aatif Chahechouhe's 67th minute goal again cut the lead to one, but it was not enough as Akhisarspor got three points.

Fenerbahce stayed at 44 points with the loss, they are now six points behind leaders Galatasaray and second-placed Medipol Basaksehir.
