VIDEO: Hafez assists, Trezeguet scores as Kasimpasa fall to late draw
Bursaspor were the better side over the start of the first half, threatening Kasimpasa’s goal a couple of times in the opening ten minutes.
Bursaspor’s Aytac Kara had an early chance to break the deadlock after two minutes, but his right-footed effort inched the right posts.
Another attempt through Diafra Sakho two minutes later, however, he failed to find the net by his left-footed shot.
Kasimpasa’s first real chance of the half came after 34 minutes through Mahmoud Trezeguet, who tried a long-range effort but it went wide of the goal.
The second half was much quieter, however, it started with a similar approach from Bursaspor who again threatened Kasimpasa’s net a couple of times.
However, in the 60th minute, Trezeguet put Kasimpasa in front after meeting Karim Hafez’s ball with a right-footed strike into the bottom left corner.
Kasimpasa’s lead lasted for twenty minutes when Bursaspor were awarded a penalty in the 80th minute which was converted by Aytac Kara into the bottom right corner.
Kasimpasa had a very late attempt to snatch the victory through Stipe Perica, whose header was saved to deny Trezeguet’s men from the three points.
The draw has raised Kasimpasa’s tally to 38 points from 29 games in the 6th place, before facing 5th-placed Yeni Malatyaspor in the following round.
