Ryan Babel made his first league goal in more than ten months on Saturday. The Orange-international became the match winner for Galatasaray in the home game against Ankaragücü. Hans Hateboer was injured at Atalanta.
Finally competition victory Atalanta again
Babel struck on behalf of Galatasaray in the injury time of the first half. He tapped the ball from a Marcelo Saracchi cross beautifully behind Brazilian goalkeeper Ricardo.
The 33-year-old attacker had not yet managed to score in competition in 2020. At the end of December last year he was accurate against Antalyaspor, after which he remained dry during his short loan to Ajax. Babel did score this season in the preliminary round of the Europa League against Hajduk Split.
Galatasaray, where Ryan Donk was allowed to come in fifteen minutes before time, is third in the Turkish Süperlig. Alanyspor is the surprising leader after six rounds.
