ANKARA (AA) - Medipol Basaksehir advanced to the UEFA Europa League last 16 Thursday after beating Sporting Lisbon 4-1 in extra time at home.

Having been defeated by Sporting Lisbon 3-1 in the first leg of Round 32, the Turkish Super Lig club eliminated their opponent 5-4 on aggregate.

Martin Skrtel gave the home team the lead in the 31st minute while Danijel Aleksic struck a perfect free kick from the edge of the box and made it 2-0.

In the second half, Luciano Vietto found the net for Sporting Lisbon in the 68th minute, making it 2-1.

The score would have been enough for the Portuguese team to advance to the next stage.

But Medipol Basaksehir made a historical comeback.

Edin Visca found the net for the Istanbul side in stoppage time and the match went into extra time at 3-1.

Visca scored a penalty in the 119th minute to advance his team to the last 16 at Fatih Terim Stadium.
