Marcao went for Akturkoglu in the 61st minute, with other players intervening before a VAR check resulted in the defender being sent off.

Apparently, this isn’t the first time Marcao has struck a player on the pitch.
It’s claimed he hit Halil Dervisoglu during Galatasaray’s friendly vs the Turkey U19 team last year.

Galatasaray boss Fatih Terim admitted to reporters he has no idea what the hell happened:
I don’t understand the reason that pushed Marcao to do this. What did he do that made him so angry… Unfortunately, these things happen in football. They will continue to happen.
I guess he’s just happy that Galatasaray managed to hold onto their 2-0 lead despite the incident. How much do you have to hate your own teammate to actually be willing to receive a red card in order to attack him in the middle of a game?
The best part is that this isn’t even the first time Marcao has attacked a teammate in the middle of a game. Not even Michael Jordan was that much of a c*nt! Can only imagine how baffled the ref was too. Something tells me Marcao won’t be at Galatasaray for too much longer, which will probably be a relief for all his teammates. Onwards and upwards.
