Adana got the first goal of the game as Belhanda's hard shot from the ground outside the penalty arc, hit the goal pole in the corner where goalkeeper Muammer Zulfikar Yıldırım was, before going into net.

The result did not change as the VAR examination confirmed that an the allegation of Belhanda fouling Robin Yalcın before the goal was false, with referee Mert Guzenge handing Adana a 1-0 lead.

Italian star Mario Balotelli replaced Britt Assombalonga in the 64th minute in Adana Demirspor before Onyekuru increased it to two.

Akintola, who was in the vacant position on the right wing, met the ball and sent it to Onyekuru whose headed shot went down the the far post.

In the 70th minute, Onyekuru sent the ball to the back of the defense, before Balotelli's mid-shot counter shot bounced off the goalkeeper Muammer and Akintola finished the ball to the empty goal.
