For the second leg of our Istanbul weekend, ATM crosses the capital to immerse you in the huge derby clash between Galatasaray and Besiktas, a crucial game in the closely-contested race for the SüperLig title. We join Galatasaray's chief scout and head of perfomance analysis Emre Utkucan in the build-up to kick-off at a deafening Türk Telekom Arena to find out how a boyhood obsession became a top-level career, how he owes it all to the legendary coach Fatih Terim and just what makes the club's home one of the most tumultuous grounds in world football. As the dust settles after the game, the club's former Manchester City midfielder Fernando - the scorer of the game's decisive second goal - tells us how that atmosphere is unlike anything he's ever experienced in the game.
