Mario Balotelli scored a magnificent free kick in the defeat of his team, Adana Demirspor, at Galatasaray (3-2) on Monday. Bafé Gomis offered himself a double.
It was a game without big stakes but Mario Balotelli (31) took the opportunity to improve his statistics. And in a beautiful way. The Italian striker scored a magnificent free kick in the defeat of his team, Adana Demirspor, on the ground of Galatasaray (3-2), Monday during the 37th day of the Süper Lig. Eccentric on the left, the Italian first feigned a first run of momentum before finally starting and sending the ball into the right corner of the opposing goalkeeper (67th).
He allowed his team to reduce the gap to 3-2, without managing to equalize thereafter. Arrived last summer in the Turkish club after the end of his adventure in Monza, “Super Mario” scored 13 goals in 30 league games but remained on a month of drought. He notably served a two-game suspension for a gross foul at Kasimpasa in April. His team signs an honorable season but remains on five defeats in a row which place it in ninth place in the championship.
A double for Gomis, on fire since his return
Another former Ligue 1 player shone during this meeting: Bafé Gomis, author of a double. The 36-year-old French international has been shining since returning to the club in February from Saudi club Al-Hilal. He scored nine goals in thirteen games with the Istanbul club which is having a difficult season, in the soft underbelly of the championship (11th).
Galatasaray, eliminated in the round of 16 of the Europa League by FC Barcelona, will not play in the European Cup next season. Trabzonspor clinched the league title, 38 years after their last. What gave scenes of completely crazy joy in the streets of the city.
