Mauro Icardi scores, reaches seven goals in six matches for Galatasaray


Mauro Icardi scored as he made it seven goals in six matches for Galatasaray.

Icardi continues his great goal scoring run, now scoring in six consecutive matches. The 30 year old did make headlines before scoring the first goal of the match as he missed a clear opportunity to score.

Galatasaray were awarded a penalty kick and they decided to do a penalty similar to the one the late Johan Cruyff did decades ago. The one which was replicated by Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez when Messi took the penalty but instead of kicking the ball, he passed it to Suarez and scored.

Icard was the one who received the pass for the penalty but his effort went wide of the goal. But he would score the first goal of the match.

The Argentine received the ball inside the penalty area and with players in front of him, controlled the ball and placed it towards the side of the goal to give Galatasaray the 1-0 lead.
