Fenerbahce player Volkan Sen opened the scoresheet in the 7th minute, but Kosovo managed to equalize in 22nd minute on a header from a corner kick.

Medipol Basaksehir's youngster, Cengiz Under, answered with his own header nine minutes later to give his team the go ahead goal headed into the half-time break.

Turkey was in full control in the second half, as striker Burak Yilmaz scored in 61th minute and Ozan Tufan added the final goal in 82nd minute.

Turkey remains in third place in Group I and has managed 11 points to date.
