Fenerbahce's slim Super Lig title hopes suffered yet another blow on Friday night as they lost 3-2 at home to seventh-placed Konyaspor.

Riad Bajic's brace at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium secured the away side an unlikely victory to inflict Fenerbahce's fifth defeat of the season.

Ten points now separate Dick Advocaat's side from league leaders Besiktas, who have a game in hand and have lost just twice.

Failure to win the Super Lig this campaign would spell Fenerbahce's third without domestic success, having last won the title in the 2013/14 season.

They've since finished runners up twice, but even second place seems a long shot.

For now, though, the Yellow Canaries' biggest concern won't be their league position, but Fernandao's horror arm break during Friday's defeat to Konyaspor.

In the video below, following an aerial challenge with the goalkeeper, Fernandao landed awkwardly on his left arm and was in so much pain that you could hear him screaming.

Be warned, the footage is of a graphic nature.


Wow, that's sickening. Fernandao's arm had virtually twisted the opposite way round as he laid motionless on the grass, yelling in pain.

Medical staff were quick onto the pitch to treat the 29-year-old, who was stretchered off and replaced by Robin van Persie in the 36th minute.

Van Persie's arrival didn't have the desired impact, though, with Omer Ali Sahiner making it 3-1 just after the half-time.

Moussa Sow then clawed a goal back with 18 minutes remaining but, despite having 19 attempts at goal, Fenerbahce were unable to find an all-important equaliser.
