Ghana international Joseph Paintsil opened his goal scoring account for Ankaragücü as they surrendered a two-goal advantage against Rizespor in a 5-3 away defeat on match-week four at the Caykur Didi Stadium.
Paintsil, 22, who joined MKE Ankaragücü on a season-long loan deal from Belgian club KRC Genk, broke his goalscoring duck for the Turkish SuperLiga side after six minutes.
He notched his brace ten minutes later before Fernando Santos pulled one back for Rizespor on the 19th minute.
His team-mate Torgeir Boerven restored the two-goal advantage for Ankaragucu with a minute left for half time but just the homesters had other ideas when Fernando Boldrin scored on the stroke of halftime to make the score 3-2.
A calamitous second half performance from Ankaragucu coincided with a fiery revival led by former Chelsea and Newcastle United striker Loic Remy handed Rizespor all the needed points in the eight-goal fest.
The former Tema Youth striker lasted for 46 minutes for Ankaragücü as well as his compatriot Godfred Donsah who featured for Rizespor.
