Umut Bozok looked to have rescued a point for the visitors when he equalized on 84 minutes but Adanaspor had the last laugh when Samet Akaydin scored the winning goal in the third minute of additional time.

The reigning Super Lig champions succumbed to their second defeat of the season. Trabzonspor also lost their opening Europa League group game mid-week away to Ferencvaros in Hungary.
