Sivasspor emerged victorious in arguably the most entertaining game of the weekend, as they won 4-2 at Elazigsporon Sunday.
Goals from Manuel da Costa and John Utaka put the visitors in command, before a strike from Ahmet Gork and a Tidiane Sane penalty levelled things up.
Defender Da Costa was then sent-of for Sivasspor, but the 10 men rallied to take the points, striker Aatif Chahechouhe finding the net twice, before Caglar Birinci was dismissed in the closing stages for Elazigspor.
Gaziantepspor claimed their first win of the season as they overcame Karabukspor 3-0, Cenk Tosun, Serdar Ozbayraktar and Artem Milevskiy scoring in a superb victory.
