Kayerispor's goal to Beşiktaş

Modest Kayserispor surprises and defeats Beşiktaş in Turkish League

The Kayseri’s team, until just a week ago in relegation positions, beated fifth-ranked Beşiktaş of Istanbul and scored 3 goals.

The modest Kayserispor, until just a week ago in direct relegation positions, gave the surprise on Monday at the close of the 30th game of the Turkish Super League and managed to defeat Beşiktaş, in the fifth place in the table, thus managing to get away more from dangerous positions just 4 weeks from the end of the Süper Lig.

After a goalless first half, 6 minutes passed in the second half when Hasan Hüseyin Acar received a pass in the area that beat the Beşiktaş goalkeeper, establishing 1-0 on the scoreboard for the local team. The Black Eagles knew how to react and in 74 Atiba Hutchinson appeared in the small area to finish off a pass from Kevin-Prince Boateng, beating Lung and achieving a draw for the Istanbul team.

The joy would not last long for the team led by Sergen Yalçın. Just 9 minutes later, Hüseyin Acar appeared again on the scene and scored a surprising goal with a direct free kick from the left wing, which crossed the crossbar and entered without complications despite the efforts by Ersin Destanoglu.

The final goal of the match -played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic- occurred just 3 minutes later; in 86 the Kayserispor Ukrainian striker Artem Kravets received a pass after a breakaway by his Croatian teammate Mario Šitum on the left wing, and stood alone against Destanoglu, managing to dribble him with the ball to the right and establishing the final 3-1.

With this result, Kayserispor, the first first division club chaired by a woman, achieves 3 vital points and moves a little further from the positions of direct relegation to the second division, while Beşiktaş remains with 50 points and in 5th position. Leading positions also remain unchanged in the Turkish league.
