The Indomitable Lions' attacker has now scored five goals in his last seven competitive games for the Super Lig giants

Cameroon forward Vincent Aboubakar hit a brace to help Besiktas secure a 2-2 draw with Kayserispor in a Super Lig match played at the Vodafone Arena on Sunday.

Besiktas welcomed the relegation candidates knowing that a win could see them maintain a three point-lead over Istanbul Basaksehir at the summit of the Super Lig.

It took 55 minutes for this evenly contested affair to see the first goal and it was no surprise that it came via Aboubakar as the Cameroon star had been irksome to the visitors' defence for most of the night

Aboubakar volleyed home the opener from the back post after Kayserispor struggled clearing a corner.

Umut Bulut drew the visitors level in the 64th minute before Andreas Beck scored an own goal in the 82nd minute to see Anadolu Yildizi go in front.

However, as Kayserispor looked set to secure a crucial three points, Aboubakar returned again. This time, the 25-year-old turned stunningly inside the box to beat two defenders and poked home his second of the night from close range in the 88th minute for his sixth league strike so far this campaign.

Since returning from the Nations Cup - where his goal was the decider in Cameroon's final victory - the FC Porto loanee has now scored five goals in his last seven competitive games for Besiktas.

Aboubakar has also kept his place in the Indomitable Lions’ squad for the upcoming friendlies with Tunisia and Guinea towards the end of the current month.
