Daniel Candeias was simply marvellous in the first half of the fixture between Antalyaspor and Genclerbirligi, which the latter won in dominant fashion with a 6-0 victory away from home.

Five of the goals came in the opening half, and Candeias played a part in every single one. His own first goal was an emphatic finish into the empty net after a cutback, while he turned provider for the visitors' second by busting a gut to get down the line to cross in for Giovanni Sio to volley home.

The next two goals for Genclerbirligi saw him complete his hat-trick, with his second of the afternoon coming via a massive helping hand from the opposition defender who languished pathetically in possession. He subsequently stole the ball, ran through, and slotted into the corner. To claim the match ball, he looped the ball over the oncoming goalkeeper before ensuring it crossed the line with a prod.

To round of a mesmerising first half, he set-up Sio again with an unselfish pass to the right for the winger to curl a beauty of a strike high into the corner.

No goals or assists in the second half, though! For shame!
