Chelsea striker Batshuayi scores (again) in Besiktas triumph

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi was again on the scoresheet for Besiktas yesterday.

On a straight loan for the season, Batshuayi scored in Besiktas' 3-2 win at Antalyaspor.

The Belgium international also produced an assist on the day.

Batshuayi (65th minute) beat his compatriot Ruud Boffin between Antalyaspor's posts, before delivering the winning assist to Rachid Ghezzal (76th minute).

Besiktas share the table leadership with Trabzonspor after five games.

Las week, in his third appearance for Besiktas, Batshuayi struck twice in victory over Yeni Malatyaspor.

Not since 2019, while on-loan with Crystal Palace, has Batshuayi struck twice in a first team game. He has been on the books at Chelsea since 2016, when he arrived from Olympique Marseille. Besiktas represents his fifth loan move away from Stamford Bridge.

Now 27, Batshuayi has a contract to 2023 with Chelsea. As a Blues player, the Belgian has played 77 games, scoring 25 goals.
