Krzysztof Piątek is still trying to get back to his previous level. Playing regularly in Basaksehir, Turkey will help with that. Indeed, the striker gets the opportunity to play from the first minute. He hasn’t been able to break through for a long time, but there are many signs that he is slowly returning to his former shooting skills.
Christoph Petek with another goal. He couldn’t help but take advantage of it
At the beginning of November, he scored twice in a 3-3 draw with Ankarajuku, ending a goal streak that lasted several matches. It has long been known that Piątek is famous for shooting in bursts, so another hit was expected. This was confirmed, as he scored just three weeks later in a 4-1 win over Bendikspor (while there was a 0-1 loss to Besiktas).
Piatek scored in the 63rd minute, making the score 4-1. Our striker took advantage of a beautiful team move. He was completely exposed in the penalty area, put his foot inside the goal, and directed the ball from a distance of about twelve centimeters into the empty goal. It looked like the ball was going to go into the net anyway, so Obaid may feel he has denied his team a goal.
For Basaksehir, winning this match is very important in the context of the relegation fight. At the moment, Betic, with 12 points, is in 17th place in the table (17th to 20th places mean a decline). Pendikspor has one more point and is in 16th place.
This is Piantic’s third goal this season. He has played 12 league matches so far. He came to Turkey on a free after an unsuccessful stay at Hertha Berlin, from which he was loaned out several times.
