The game was nearing completion (it was already added by the referee stoppage time), and "Trabzonspor" hopelessly inferior homes— 0:4.

Here a disappointed fan of the home team ran onto the pitch and from behind attacked the referee standing on the goal line. The assailant managed to strike the referee several punches, after which he was detained by security personnel. The incident sparked riots in the stadium and the chief judge of the meeting Yildirim had to stop the meeting and lead the team in the locker room.

Football Federation of Turkey will now have to decide on the outcome of the match, as the game was not finished, and to make appropriate disciplinary sanctions.
