ANKARA, Turkey (AP) -- Besiktas fans could face a two-match ban after Galatasaray defender Emmanuel Eboue was repeatedly pelted with objects during a Turkish league game against Besiktas.

Eboue was repeatedly hit on the head Sunday with objects, including a lighter and a plastic water bottle.

The state-run Anadolu Agency said Monday that Besiktas fans also shouted abuse at Galatasaray midfielder Engin Baytar, while some dismantled seats and threw them at police, who tried to intervene.

Galatasaray players and referees continued to be pelted as they left the field protected by a line of police shields.
