Fenerbahçe Istanbul supporters behaved in a way that overshadowed Dynamo Kyiv's win in Ukraine's second competitive game since Russia's war of aggression began.

According to consistent Turkish media reports, numerous supporters of the Turkish club chanted the name of Russian President Vladimir Putin in the second half of the Champions League second qualifying round match.

Fenerbahçe and the European football union Uefa were asked to comment.

The Ukrainian record champions won the second leg in Istanbul 2-1 (1-1, 0-0) after extra time on Wednesday evening.

The narrow away win was enough after the 0-0 in the first leg to reach the third qualifying round for the premier class.

Vitaliy Bujalskyj (57th minute) gave Kyiv the lead, followed by shouts of "Vladimir Putin" from the stands.

Attila Szalai (89') equalized just before the end of regulation time for Fenerbahçe, who were outnumbered for a long time after being sent off to İsmail Yüksek (53').

Oleksandr Karawajew ensured Kyiv progressed in extra time (114th).

First leg was played in Lodz instead of Kyiv

Dynamo had played the first duel in Lodz, Poland, because of the uncertain situation around Kyiv in view of the Russian war of aggression.

Since the beginning of the war and the end of the league, Kyiv had kept fit with friendly and charity games - such as in April at Borussia Dortmund.

The German coach Franco Foda failed with his new club FC Zurich.

In the second leg against Karabakh Agdam from Azerbaijan, the Swiss champions could only draw 2-2 after extra time and were eliminated after the 2-3 draw in the first leg.

After missing out on qualifying for the World Cup, Foda resigned as Austrian national coach and succeeded André Breitenreiter in Zurich for the new season.
