It was the latter who won, thanks to a goal scored in added time by Al-Musrati (3-2). A few minutes earlier, Thomas Meunier had allowed Trabzonspor to equalize when his powerful header was repelled by the opposing goalkeeper within reach of Nicolas Pépé, the former Arsenal and Nice player. However, it was this same Pépé who, by completely missing a clearance in his area, allowed Al-Musrati to adjust his decisive strike in the 94th minute.

Thomas Meunier, as usual since he joined Trabzonspor at the beginning of February, played the entire match, multiplying the runs on the right side. If, after the opening goal for Trabzonspor, from former Genkois Onuachu, he tolerated one or the other excess on his side a little too easily, the Ardennes full-back also proved dangerous in the offensive phase . First arming a solid shot repelled by the goalkeeper, then poorly adjusting a header from a corner. His heading, at the origin of Pépé’s goal, allows him to sign a 10th decisive action in 18 appearances with Trabzonspor, but he will however have to be content with this statistic without being able to add to a list of achievements which already included three other winning appearances in the national final . And this in three different countries since he had already won in the same event in Belgium with Bruges, in France with PSG and in Germany with Dortmund.
