Trabzonspor made it three consecutive wins in the Turkish Super Lig in emphatic fashion as they demolished Kasimpasa 6-0, with on-loan striker Alexander Sorloth scoring three of the goals with some impressive centre forward play.

His first goal was probably the best of his tally as he rose high at the back post to bullet a bouncing header into the bottom corner following a cracking cross from Joao Pereira.

The next two goals, which were the fourth and sixth of the match, were a lot easier chances as he tapped a couple of close range finishes home, but they both displayed a know-how to be in the right place at the right time as a centre forward.

His ability to hold up possession up top was key to the win, also, as he misplaced just four passes during the 90 minutes, while also winning 11/17 duels.

The three-goal tally took Sorloth to 15 goals for the season in the league so far, making him the current top scorer in the Turkish top flight.
