Besiktas and Trabzonspor went into halftime level, thanks in part to a crucial goal from Rachid Ghezzal. The Algerian international, recently back from injury, found the net at a pivotal moment in the match.

The game started with Trabzonspor taking an early lead in the 13th minute through a strike by Paul Onuachu. Despite Besiktas’ efforts, they struggled to find an equalizer until the very end of the first half.

In stoppage time, Besiktas were awarded a penalty. Stepping up with composure, Ghezzal converted the spot-kick with his left foot, equalizing the score at 1-1 just before the halftime whistle.

This goal marked Ghezzal’s first in this edition of the Turkish Cup, achieved in his fifth appearance in the competition.

It also highlighted his return to form following his injury layoff, showcasing his importance to the team in crucial moments.

Throughout the season, Ghezzal has been a key player for Besiktas, contributing two goals and four assists across all competitions.

His performance in the final reflects his determination to help Besiktas secure another Turkish Cup title, adding to the one he won with the team in 2021.

As the second half beckoned, both teams prepared for a fiercely contested battle, with Ghezzal and his teammates aiming to lift the trophy once again.

The match’s outcome remained uncertain, but Ghezzal’s goal ensured that Besiktas stayed firmly in contention.
