Trabzonspor had the last laugh, Carl Medjani scored the winner on 86 minutes to record the Black Sea Storms second consecutive win over the Lions.

The game grew increasingly heated towards the end of the 90 minutes culminating in a brawl between Trabzonspor and Galatasaray players.

A total of 15 yellow cards were shown in the game and Hurmacı ended up being sent off.
