Trabzonspor took the lead when Norwegian forward Alexander Sorloth crossed the ball into the goal area and Turkish midfielder Abdulkadir Omur flicked it into Alanyaspor’s net for the 1-0 score.

In injury time in the second half, Alanyaspor forward Papiss Cisse’s equalized with header but the goal was disallowed because of an offside call.
