The German player has increased his goal tally to 27 and equalized Demba Ba’s record.

Gomez also scored in the first derby against Galatasaray, which Beşiktaş ended up winning 2-1.

Gomez also scored twice in the 3-2 derby win against Fenerbahçe in the first half of the season and with this latest goal, he has scored in 3 of the 4 derby matches played this season.

On the other hand, Cenk Tosun, who contributed to the team throughout the seasons with the goals he scored coming off the bench, assisted Gomez’s latest goal and was one of the heroes in the derby win.
