ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Wesley Sneijder scored the winner as Galatasaray clinched the Turkish Cup with a 1-0 victory over Eskisehirspor in Wednesday's final.
Sneijder made the breakthrough in the 70th minute, with the Dutch international finishing a Galatasaray attack down the left side.
Both teams struggled to create chances in a largely eventless encounter.
Cup success is a consolation for Roberto Mancini's Galatasaray after a disappointing league campaign where the best they can hope for is a second-place finish behind champions Fenerbahce.
Galatasaray, who were also knocked out of the Champions League in the last 16 by Chelsea, will face Fenerbahce for the Turkish Super Cup.
