How they qualified
The 8-1 outsiders went unbeaten to top a section which included Monaco, Leipzig and Porto in some style.

Results and fixtures

Turkish Super Lig standings

Transfer action
Top scorer Cenk Tosun, who notched four goals in the Champions League as well as scoring eight times in the league, was sold to Everton in a surprise transfer. Much-travelled Vagner Love and MLS forward Cyle Larin will attempt to fill Tosun's boots, while defender Domagoj Vida has arrived from Dynamo Kiev.
