Video: Emmanuel Adebayor Scores His First Hat-Trick in Six Years vs Galatasaray

Ex-Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor was on fire during Istanbul Basaksehir’s match against Galatasaray, bagging his first hat-trick in six years.

Adebayor moved to the Turkish Super Lig in January, after being released by Crystal Palace in June of last year.

And while many expected the 33-year-old’s best days to be behind him, the Togo international reminded us all of his deadly finishing as Basaksehir thrashed Galatasaray 4-0 in the Istanbul derby.

In fact, it wouldn’t be too bold to guess this may have been Adebayor’s most impressive showing in years, as he scored a brilliant hat-trick.

With the veteran forward picking up the match ball, it was the first time Adebayor had bagged three goals in a game since his spell at the Bernabeu in 2011, where he scored a hat-trick during Real Madrid’s 8-1 thumping of Almeria:

 

Istanbul currently sit second in the Super Lig, five points behind table toppers Besiktas.

However, if Adebayor can continue his fantastic run of form, Istanbul could mount a serious challenge to win their first ever domestic title.

Meanwhile Galatasaray have fallen to fourth place, 12 points adrift of the league leaders.
