Mauro Icardi fires Galatasaray ahead in the first minute of Turkish Super Cup final only for Fenerbahce's U19s to carry out pre-match threat and leave pitch - as rivals hold practice match after being handed trophy in bizarre scenes, APA reports citing The Goal.

Fenerbahce's team left the pitch after conceding in the first minute of their Super Cup final against Galatasaray, as part of a planned protest.

Fenerbahce requested that the Super Cup final be postponed as they wanted more time to prepare for their Europa Conference League quarter-final against Olympiacos on Thursday, but the request was denied.

The club subsequently confirmed they would play their Under-19 side in the game and would try to get the game abandoned. After conceding a first-minute goal to Mauro Icardi, the players walked off the pitch, and the win was simply awarded to their opponents.
