Kouka, who had not scored a goal in eight previous games, gave Alanyaspor an early lead in the 21st minute after receiving a brilliant assist from winger Cavaleiro.

However, Antalyaspor dominated the game and secured a deserved 3-1 win in the 29th matchday of the Turkish League. Kouka was substituted in injury time.

The 30-year-old towering striker, who stands at 191 cm, has now increased his tally of goals to nine in 22 league games since joining Alanyaspor last summer on a season-long loan deal from Greek giants Olympiacos.

Alanyaspor are currently in 11th place in the Turkish League with 32 points after playing 28 games so far this season.

Kouka spent last season on loan at Turkish side Konyaspor, where he scored 11 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions.

He returned to Olympiacos last summer but made just two appearances for the Greek club before moving to Alanyaspor.
