Trezeguet provided the breakthrough for Kasimpasa as they beat Karabukspor 2-0, with Bernard Mensah’s overhead kicking sealing the result for the Apaches.

Kasimpasa XI: Birnican, Popov, Sari, Omeruo, Veigneau, Sadiku, Pavelka, Depe, Mensah, Trezeguet, Diagne.

Karabukspor XI: Akbaba, Aslantas, Kravcheko, Yilmaz, Ibanez, Skulason, Bliznichenko, Ozdemir, Akin, Stahl, Akbulut.

After a close first half between the two sides, Egyptian goalscoring sensation Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’ broke the deadlock with an unconventional goal by his standards as the ball was whipped into the box from the deep on the right wing and found Trezeguet around 12 yards from goal who then provided a bullet header into the top corner.

Soon later, Bernard Mensah doubled Kasimpasa’s tally with an acrobatic effort as Diagne dragged the keeper off his line on the touchline, before crossing to the back post to find the Ghanaian who produced an overhead kick from close range to find the back of the net.

Karabukspor are at the bottom of the table, and the gulf in quality really started to show as Kasimpasa dominated the game both in terms of possession and in terms of chances created, with the Istanbul based club having 57% possession overall. The difference in quality was clear enough for Kasimpasa to comfortably close out the game and win 2-0.

The win means that Kasimpasa are up to 8th in the table although they may drop when other sides play their games in hand. Kasimpasa’s best possible placement is likely to be 5th, with what would be the ”best of the rest” in the league behind the four title contenders.

Kasimpasa’s next game is a trip to Konyaspor on Sunday 22nd of April at 3PM Egyptian time, where Trezeguet may meet African legend Samuel Eto’o.
