Ekuban doubled their advantage five minutes later with a clinical strike before feeding Sturridge with beautiful pass to make it 3-0 in the 63rd minute.

Portuguese midfielder Ivanildo Fernandes made it 4-0 in the 71st minute before Altay grabbed a consolation through Marco Paixao in the 83rd minute.

Trabzonspor won the match with a 6-1 aggregate scoreline after winning the first leg 2-1 a fortnight ago.
