Adana ousts Rize on way to promotion playoff final
Adanaspor defeated Çaykur Rizespor 1-0 to advance to the finals for the Bank Asya League 1 promotion playoffs on Tuesday night.
The win allowed Adanaspor to earn a final berth 3-1 on aggregate against Rizespor and the team will face off against the winner of the Kasımpaşa-Konyaspor semifinal showdown. Played at Rize’s Yeni Şehir Stadium, the away victory for Adana was attended by a crowd of cheering women and children, who entered free of charge after the Professional Football Disciplinary Committee slapped Rizespor with a two-match ban for the misbehavior of its fans recently. Rizespor will play in the May 27 final against the Kasımpaşa-Konyaspor winner. That match was still being played on Wednesday when Today’s Zaman went to print.
