Midfielder Melo saves last-minute penalty

In Turkey Galatasaray remained top of the Super Lig, but only by the skin of their teeth after midfielder Felipe Melo saved a last-minute penalty in their match against Elazigspor.

First-choice Fernando Muslera was sent off, and with no subsitutes left Melo was forced to deputise.

But the Brazilian had the last laugh, saving Goksu Turdogan's penalty superbly to preserve Gala's 1-0 lead and ensure they kept their place at the top of the standings, two points ahead of Antalyaspor.
