Trabzonspor beat Mersin 5-1 at the Tevfik Sırrı Gür stadium to move in fourth place in the league.
Paraguayan international Oscar Cardozo also got his name on the scoresheet with a super strike from outside the penalty area for his 14th goal of the season.

Cardozo scored 172 goals in 293 appearances for the Portuguese giants.
The 31-year-old won the Portuguese Cup, five Portuguese League Cups and two league titles during his time at the Estadio da Luz.
Cardozo has scored a total of 17 goals and provided four assists in all competitions for Trabzonspor this season.
