Da Costa wins it for Sivasspor
In Turkish Super Lig action on Saturday, a Manuel da Costa-strike secured a first league win of the season for Sivasspor over Genclerbirligi at 4 Eylul.
The 28-year-old struck four minutes before the interval to secure all three points for the Sivas-based outfit.
The hosts had the better of the early running, going close with a quarter of an hour gone through Cicinho’s drive from outside the box which flew just wide. Genclerbirligi then saw an effort from Nizamettin Caliskan come back off the upright on 21 minutes.
Eventually, Yigidolar took the lead in the 41st minute. Moroccan international da Costa rose inside the box to meet a Cicinho delivery, earning coach Roberto Carlos his first three points of the League campaign.
The game also featured Nigeria international forward John Utaka.
