Football: Galatasaray draw after conceding early goals
Thursday 16 September 1999
The Germans, playing in Europe for the first time in 21 years, silenced the Turkish crowd with two goals in the first 12 minutes from Michael Preetz and Dariusz Wosz, but Galatasaray replied with a delightful Hakan Sukur solo effort in the 21st minute and an 89th-minute penalty by Gheorghe Hagi that followed the dismissal of Kostas Konstantinidis, of Hertha.
Two goals from the Brazilian midfielder Paulo Sergio gave Bayern Munich a 2-1 victory over PSV Eindhoven in their opening match in Rangers' group in Munich. Beaten by Manchester United in last year's final, Bayern went ahead after 11 minutes, but the visitors equalised in the 59th minute with a shot from close range by their Russian midfielder, Dmitri Khokhlov. Paulo Sergio scored the winner with a superbly acrobatic effort 10 minutes later.
Real Madrid had to settle for a hard-fought 3-3 draw in their opening Group E match at Olympiakos Piraeus.
