A late goal from Lincoln earned Galatasaray a tremendously hard fought win at Swiss side AC Bellinzona.

The Swiss champions had a goal from Lustrinelli cancelled by Harry Kewell, but restored their lead through Sermeter just after the break.

It was then time for Czech striker Milan Baros to stand up, turning the score around with goals in the 52nd and 80th minutes.

But Bellinzona, who had been without the red-carded Diarra since the 60th minute, thought to have secured a draw when La Rocca netted for 3-3 in the 89th minute.

The Turks insisted in leaving Switzerland with a victory in the pocket though, and Lincoln scored to make it 3-4 in added time.
