Viewers shocked as Turkish side Sivasspor wear white for snowy Istanbul Basaksehir game leaving fans unable to see stars

FANS in Turkey were left utterly baffled after Sivasspor wore their white away kit to play Istanbul Basaksehir in the SNOW.

After a heavy downpour of snow on Saturday, the pitch in Istanbul was left brilliant white.

With pitch markings already barely visible as the snow continued to fall, Sivasspor threw another spanner in the works.

Taking on the orange and black of Istanbul Basaksehir, the visiting side would have been fine in their red and white striped home strip.

But instead, they opted to the wear their ALL-WHITE away kit for the Super Lig clash.

The stunt left viewers baffled, with hoards of supporters taking to Twitter with screenshots of their incredible TV view.

Given the state of the pitch and the angle of the camera, the Sivasspor stars were barely visible on the screens.

But it didn't give the away side much of an advantage, as the clubs shared the points on Saturday.

Danijel Aleksic had given the hosts a 1-0 lead in the first-half before Hakan Arslan equalised for Sivasspor on the stroke of half-time.

But neither side was able to break the deadlock in the second period.


The draw means both sides stay level on 23 points apiece in the Super Lig standings.

Sivasspor, in tenth, sit one spot above Istanbul Basaksehir in 11th on goal difference.

Meanwhile, Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil edged closer to his free move to Turkey.

The German star, 32, is set to join Fenerbahce after the Gunners reportedly agreed to terminate his £350,000-a-week contract early.

And on Saturday, Ozil appeared to say farewell to the Emirates with a post on his Instagram story.
