The host took the lead through a penalty kick from Anastasios Bakasetas in the 15th minutes to end the first half 1-0.

Anthony Nwakaeme doubled the lead with a classic goal in the 47th minutes, before Isaac Cofie netted a goal for the away team in the 70th minutes to end the match 2-1.

Reacting after Nigerian Anthony Nwakaeme netted a goal to guide his team to a remarkable League victory, UEFA posted on their verified Twitter handle on Tuesday that;

"⚽️ Bakasetas, ⚽️ Nwakaeme, 🔴🔵 Trabzonspor prepare for their second-leg against Roma by beating Sivasspor 2-1 👏."
