Former Nigeria youth international Aminu Umar ended his goal drought in the Turkish top flight in style by firing a brace for Osmanlispor in their shock 3-2 win over league giants Galatasary.

Aminu prior to scoring a brace against Galatassary last scored on11th of December 2015 when they beat Bursaspor 3-0 but in this particular game he set the ball rolling by scoring the game’s opener in the 20th minute but saw his team throw away their lead at a point to be trailing 1-2.

The 20 year old restored parity for his team a minute after they went behind and a minute to the first half break to help his team level at things up.

Musa Caigiran scored what ended up as the winner for Osmanlispor in game that saw their new Nigerian signing Raheem Lawal starting his first game for the team but he was substituted with 10 minutes left to play.

The victory moved Osmanlispor to 13th on the league standings while the loss further compounded Galatassary woes this season as it saw them fall 10 points behind the league leaders Fenerbache.
