In the highly anticipated match, the 30-year-old forward was given a spot in the starting lineup, and it took him just four minutes into the second half to break the deadlock and give Alanyaspor the lead.

Sivasspor's Rey Manaj managed to level the score in the 64th minute.

However, Alanyaspor's Oguz Aydın came through in the 79th minute, securing the win for Kouka's side with a final score of 2-1.

Having joined Alanyaspor on loan from rivals Pendikspor until the end of the current season, Kouka wasted no time in opening his goal-scoring account.

He previously found the back of the net with a crucial equalizer during his side's 1-1 draw against Karagumruk in late February.

The Egyptian striker's move to Alanyaspor during the winter transfer window came after a challenging three-month spell at Pendikspor, where he struggled to make an impact.

Alanyaspor currently occupies the 11th position in the Turkish Super League table, having accumulated 36 points from 29 games.

However, they lag behind leaders and title holders Galatasaray by a considerable margin of 42 points.
