Turkish Süper Lig table-topper Trabzonspor opened up a massive 12-point lead after a brace from Edin Visca gave it a 2-1 win over second-placed Konyaspor on Sunday.

In the game week 25 match, Visca led from the front with his two goals coming in the 13th and 67th minutes at Trabzon’s Medical Park Stadium.
