Sports writers commented on Trabzonspor, who defeated Kayserispor 1-0 in the first match of the Ziraat Turkish Cup semi-finals.
20.04.2022 – 09:10
Mehmet Demirkol (Fanatic) – Hikmet Karaman put on the field a defensive setup that managed to block the fluidity of Trabzonspor’s game. They managed to keep Visca away from the castle. Kayseri managed to stay on gradual defense when the hosts failed to change the offensive direction quickly in the 11th without Nwakaeme. Trabzonspor from time to time polished the defense of their opponents due to this tempo problem and unlocked them with their high-skilled players. While Visca and Bakasetas remained in the mark for so long, the actors who would do the fine work, including Abdülkadir, avoided even trying them. Changing the offensive direction with a long pass or high tempo while the opponent is defending well, or doing fine craftsmanship: They didn’t do well until Nwakaeme came into the game. On his glorious pass, Cornelius’ high composure lowering the ball with his chest changed everything.
Uğur Meleke (Hürriyet/Sport Arena) – Kayseri is the team that walked the hardest way to the cup. They passed both Beşiktaş and Fenerbahçe on the road and got a semi-final visa. This time, their exams were Trabzon away. They followed a strategy similar to Fenerbahce and Beşiktaş games, they were closed in blocks with 10 players, they almost did not attack a single set. Against the conservative strategy of Kayseri, it must be said that Trabzon remained quite inactive until the changes in the 70s. The Nigerian artist created the magic that was not on the field for 87 minutes with a single move… Bakasetas could not return to his old gear after injury, Abdulkadir was excited about the final decisions yesterday. The rabbit that Nwakaeme pulled out of the hat on a day like this was undoubtedly worth more.
Deniz Çoban (Fanatik) – The referee of the match Atilla Karaoğlan was also the referee of the last Fenerbahçe-Galatasaray match. I think that Karaoğlan, who passed the class with his management in the derby, successfully managed this match with the morale of that match. The most controversial moment of the match for the referee was the 35th minute. Trabzonspor players waited for a penalty when the ball touched Onur’s arm in the penalty area. Penalty expectations were unnecessary in my opinion. The referee’s decision to continue was correct. Because the ball bouncing off the foot of Kouassi from Trabzon, hit Onur’s arm in a natural position from a short distance. This was not a play.
Olcay Çakır (Fanatic) – Nwakaeme made Cornelius work in the final moments of the match by showing his great acting once again with his assists delivered to the address. To explain its importance, last night was a victory far beyond evaluating it as an advantage in the first leg of a cup match. As a Trabzonspor who has overcome the syndrome of not being able to win, they go to Adana. This is an important break.
Erman Özgür (Fanatik) – The most important reasons why the sign did not change were the insufficient quality of the last shot and the goalkeeper Lung. The second half of the match started at a similar slow pace. Trabzonspor, who could not overcome the very measured defense of Kayserispor, where the hardness of football was well applied, came to the defender Dorukhan, Hamsik to the midfield and Nwakaeme to the forward, respectively. Kayserispor could not evaluate the breaking moment of the match with Cardoso in this period. Towards the end of the match, grandmaster Nwakaeme stepped in. He served a great pass to Cornelius, who could not get the balls he wanted throughout the match, while Cornelius finished with an excellent control and place.
