Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’ scored what turned out to be the winner for against newly promoted with Thievy Bifouma and Mbaye Diagne completing an all African scoresheet.

Kasimpasa XI: Kose; Popov, Saari, Ben Youssef, Veigneau; Serbest, Sadiku, Eduok, Depe, Trezeguet; Diagne.

Ankaragucu XI: Hopf; Ozgenc, Kubalas, Kone, Pinto; Faty, Moulin, Thievy, Parlak, Mokhtar; El Kabir.

Ankaragucu had an early chance to take the lead in the 10th minute as they were awarded a penalty, however Moroccan striker Mostafa El Kabir fluffed his lines. The capital city club were soon made to regret this as Mbaye Diagne scored at the other end for Kasimpasa just three minutes later from a Depe pass.

Both sides were playing out a hotly contested match with yellow cards galore, and it took a standout piece of individual brilliance from Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’ as he controlled a cross from the left wing with a deft touch and created the space to pull off a simple finish in almost Bergkamp esque fashion, to make the scoreline 2-0 with just over twenty minutes remaining.

The result seemed beyond all doubt, however with 7 minutes added on by the fourth official there was still time for Ankaragucu to have a late push for a result and two big names combined as Alessio Cerci assisted Thievy Bifouma 4 minutes into stoppage time, however it was too little too late as the game finished 2-1.

The win means that Kasimpasa continue their perfect start with four wins from four games as they sit at the top of the Turkish league table. Their next game is a tricky fixture after the international break against Galatasaray on September 16th.
