  • Mario Balotelli was on the scoresheet for Adana Demirspor against Fenerbahce
  • The Italian forward hit a new celebration after scoring against the Turkish giants

Mario Balotelli produced a new celebration after scoring during the Turkish League game between Adana Demirspor and Fenerbahce on Wednesday evening.

The former Manchester City striker scored the easiest goal of his career after Fenerbahce goalkeeper Irfan Ergribayat mistakenly kicked the ball into the striker's path. Balotelli, with an empty net, rolled the ball to level the scores for his side.

The 33-year-old in a funny reaction to the goal held his head while he looked at the goalkeeper before his teammates joined him at the far end.

In a video shared on social media, Balotelli subtly mocked Egribayat as he celebrated his goal with his teammates.

Meanwhile, in a thrilling encounter, Ghanaian defender Alexander Djiku opened the scoring 17 minutes into the game before the Italian levelled as the two teams went into the break at 1-1.

After the break, Balotelli's former teammate at Manchester City, Edin Dzeko restored Fenerbahce's lead before Dusan Tadic extended the advantage with 20 minutes remaining.

Adana Demirspor pulled one back through Yusuf Barasi but the hosts scored again as Serdar Dursun sealed victory for Fenerbahce.

Balotelli has scored seven goals in 11 games this season, per Transfermarkt.

Serdar Dursun hits 'siuu' after scoring

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Fenerbahce's Serdar Dursun copied Cristiano Ronaldo's iconic 'Siuu' celebration after scoring a crucial goal in his side's 4-2 victory against Mario Balotelli's Adana Demirspor.

Despite facing limited playing time due to the outstanding performances of Edin Dzeko, who leads the Turkish Super Lig's top scorers chart with 19 goals, Dursun seized his opportunity to shine on Wednesday, April 3.

Called upon by coach Ismail Kartal during a tense moment in the game, the 32-year-old responded with a powerful header that found the back of the net, securing Fenerbahce's win and keeping them in contention with league leaders Galatasaray.
