Ricardo Quaresma matches Demba Ba

Updated: November 5, 2015

Ricardo Quaresma joined Beşiktaş for his second stint this past summer and today scored his first European goal for the club since the 2011-2012 season.

Quaresma had already scored 3 Süper Lig goals since his return to the Black Eagles and today scored his first goal in Europe for Beşiktaş against Lokomotiv Moscow just before the hour mark.

With this goal Ricardo Quaresma now has 8 European goals for the Black Eagles, which puts him on level terms with Demba Ba. It has to be pointed out however that Ba scored his 8 European goals in a single season, while Quaresma has now scored his 8th goal in his 3rd European campaign for the Black Eagles.


  1. Oktay Derelioglu – 14 goals
  2. Deivson Rogério Da Silva ‘Bobô’ – 12 goals
  3. Daniel Gabriel Pancu – 9 goals
  4. Demba Ba/Ricardo Quaresma – 8 goals

How high will Quaresma end up getting on this list?
