Dutch club PSV Eindhoven sealed an easy 5-1 win over Turkish side Galatasaray on Wednesday in the Champions League second qualifying round to have a huge advantage into the second leg.

But the Lions made the score 2-1 before the first half ended after Omer Bayram sent a cross for Emre Kilinc, who powered in a header to find the net.

At the beginning of the second half, PSV doubled the lead again thanks to Mario Gotze's classy finish.
