Last weekend the first round of the Kıbrıs Cup was played, 16 teams from League 1 were automatically drawn against Super League opposition. Out of those 16 League 1 sides only one team Karşıyaka lived to fight another day. Karşıyaka beat Baf Ülkü Yurdu at home 2-0, to provide the only “giant killing act” of the round.
Dörtyol ,Girne Halk Evi and Mesarya all forced their Super League opponents into extra time before finally succumbing.
The draw for the second round will take place on January 8th, with matches being played on Wednesday February 5th.
