Kahveci matches Ronaldo and Bale feat with hat-trick in Istanbul Basaksehir defeat to RB Leipzig


Irfan Can Kahveci Istanbul Basaksehir 2020-21

Irfan Can Kahvecimatched a Champions League feat only previously accomplished by Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in Istanbul Basaksehir'sdramatic 4-3 defeat to RB Leipzig on Wednesday.

Brazilian striker Ronaldo scored a treble for Real Madrid in a losing effort againstManchester United in April 2003, whileBale scored three times forTottenham againstInter in a defeat inOctober 2010.

After Yussuf Poulsen and Nordi Mukiele gave Leipzig a two-goal advantage to start the game,Kahveci scored just before the half to give the Turkish side life.

Dani Olmo appeared to put the game away for the Germans in the second half, but Kahveci hit back with two more goals – the latter of which was a stunning 85th-minute free-kick – to level the game at 3-3.

All ofKahveci's goals came from outside the box, making the 25-year-oldthe first player to score a Champions League hat-trick with each goal coming from outside the area since Wayne Rooney's debut in the competition for Manchester United, against Fenerbahce, back in September 2004.

Basaksehir thought they had secured a share of the points but substitute Alexander Sorloth scored a dramatic stoppage-time winner to give Leipzig a4-3 winand put the pressure on PSG and Manchester United, against whothe Germans are competing for a spot in the last 16.

Meanwhile, with the loss,Basaksehir becameonly the seventh team in Champions League history to score at least three goals in a home match and end up losing.

Leipzig will not have much time to celebrate the victory, as they are back in action on Saturday with a massive Bundesliga clash against champions Bayern Munich.Julian Nagelsmann's men enter the match in second place in the table, two points behind leaders Bayern.
