Mikel Agu on target in Bursaspor win over Antalyaspor

The 24-year-old midfielder opened the scoring for the Green Crocodiles in their comfortable win over the Scorpions at the Timsah Arena

Mikel Agu found the back of the net in Bursaspor's 4-0 thrashing of Antalyaspor in Sunday’s Turkish Super Lig game.

The Nigeria international gave the hosts the lead in the 37th minute before the visitors were reduced to ten men after Maicon received his marching orders eight minutes later.

Aziz Behich doubled the Green Crocodiles' lead in the 46th minute before DR Congo’s Jires Kembo-Ekoko added a third with 21 minutes left to play. 

Pablo Martin Batalla added a fourth in the 90th minute to cap a dominant display by the hosts.

Agu who scored his second league goal of the season played the entire duration of the encounter for the hosts alongside compatriot William Troost-Ekong and Ghana’s Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, while Samuel Eto’o could not add to his three league goals tally despite playing the entire 90 minutes of the clash.

This was Paul Le Guen side's fifth league win of the season and it sees them move up to seventh on the Turkish top flight log while Antalyaspor suffered their fifth league loss and sees them drop to 15th with just one point separating them from the relegation zone.
