The Togo international’s scored his 13th goal of the season, on his 28th league appearance, as his side delivered an awesome second-half display

Emmanuel Adebayor scored a goal as Istanbul Basaksehir came from behind to hand hosts Osmanlispor a 4-1 defeat in a Turkish Super Lig encounter on Sunday afternoon.

After going down to Numan Curuksu’s effort in the 42nd minute, Abdullah Avci’s men responded with four second-half goals to leave the Osmanlı Stadı with the maximum points.

Edin Visca levelled proceedings seven minutes after the interval before Adebayor put the visitors ahead for the first time in the game.

Late quickfire strikes from Alexandru Epureanu and Marcio Mossoro helped put the game beyond the hosts as Basaksehir secured their 20th league win of the season.

They now sit atop the top-flight log with 65 points from 31 games, however, result from the game between fellow title contenders Galatasaray and Besiktas on Sunday evening would determine whether or not they retain their spot.

For their next Turkish top division encounter, they face Sivasspor on Friday.
