Turkish Cup: Nwakaeme Benched As Trabzonspor Beat Antalyaspor To Reach Semi-finals

Anthony Nwakaeme was an unused as Trabzonspor defeated Antalyaspor 2-0 to reach the semi-finals of the Turkish Cup on Tuesday.

Goals in each half from Edin Visca and Berat Ozdemir, sealed Trabzonspor passage into the last four.

Visca opened scoring in the 12th minute before Ozdemir added the second goal with just a minute left.

Trabzonspor will now meet either Besiktas or Kayserispor in a two-legged semi-final clash.

Nwakaeme, who has scored 10 goals and provided nine assists in 25 appearances in all competitions this season, is yet to feature in the Turkish Cup this term.

Wednesday’s other quarter-final will see Sivasspor, that parade Nigerian duo Leke James, and Olanrewaju Kayode, take on Ahmed Musa’s Fatih Karagumruk.

While Chidozie Awaziem’s Alanyaspor will host Gaziantep on Thursday in another quarter-final fixture.

  • See useless and misleading Reporting Headline.. CSN again try and be more professional.. I don’t know what you people’s agenda is with Performing Nigerian Players… Let me help you clueless Journalists on how to report..

    With the Great and OUTSTANDING WORK Anthony Nwakaeme is doing in Turkey ads Leading scorer he is not Benched he is restes.

    So the Headline should Read “NWAKAEME RESTED!!!!!!!!!!!!” GERRITTT!!!..

    YEYE MUMU Reporting

    • MONKEY POST 2 years ago

      LMFAO! Look @ this mad man @Ugo Iwunze..LMFAO! What do you know about journalism? Was nwaekeme not benched in the game? Come off with this your senseless ranting filled with sentiment. So why didn’t you bring your senseless ranting here when the same CSN reported that Ighalo was benched instead of rested during their world club game.

      • HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! LoL, I always suspected you were demented lol! But Now I am 100% Sure!!.. Ighalo was Dropped because he unperformed against Chelsea and was not impactful in that game @MONKEY POST which his team subsequently lost. SO naturally they would drop him in the next game of the tournament. Nwakaeme own is different he has been in terrifying Form of late scoring Up and Down for fun and, playing week in week out. So he was not benched he was rested also they probably have it that maybe they should give the second string striker a chance as Nwakaeme is getting all the minutes. These are the dynamics people who understand ball know but don’t worry I know you are not clued up enough when it comes to footballing matters @MONKEY BRAIN!.

        • Nwakaeme Getting all the minutes in the league!..and most cup (Super Lig (Turkish cup). It’s Like Napoli and with David Ospina and Alex Meret. Ospina Plays League Matches most of them and Meret plays cup.

          Again @Monkey Donut head! Benched is a term in Football used when a player is under performing rested is used when he is over worked or used. Get that into your BRICK HEAD!!

          • or Over relied upon!!!!!!.. YOU DON”T BENCH YOUR NO 1 YOU REST THEM GERRRITTT!!!

    Spot on @Ugo Anthony is the top rated player in the Turkish league today and a god in a certain region of turkey where they built a giant Statue that resembles him. CS stop looking for bribe if you won’t promote him for all his exploits in a league where we have Musa then leave him alone.

    Chima EWU Samuels,
    How dare you accuse CSN of looking for bribe? That is character assassination.
