The ferocious game was played at Şükrü Saraçoğlu stadium in Istanbul.
In the 30th minute, the match was stopped for a period as a result of the reaction which Fenerbahçe striker Emmanuel Ermenike received from fans. Some fans were critical of Ermenike when he missed a couple of goal-scoring chances, to which he responded by taking off his uniform and leaving the field.
Ermenike was stopped on his way to the locker-room by Fenerbahçe technical director İsmail Kartal and substitute players and persuaded to go back on the field. But, by the time Ermenike returned to the game, tensions on the side of the field had risen, this time between Beşiktaş assistant coach Edin Terzin, and Fenerbahçe player Bruno Alves.
Tensions escalated in the later moments when another Fenerbahçe player, Emre Belezoğlu, got involved in the argument, advancing upon Slaven Bilic, Beşiktaş technical director. All the parties were eventually calmed down, and the game was able to kick off again.
