Mario Balotelli scored an insane rabona goal in a crazy five-goal haul on Sunday.
The enigmatic Italian striker is plying his trade with Adana Demirspor in the Turkish Super Lig these days and produced one of his greatest career performances on the final day of the campaign.
Balotelli found the net FIVE times in a 7-0 blitzing of Goztepe, taking his goals tally to 18 in 31 appearances in the league.
The former Manchester City and Liverpool man had scored a 11-minute first half hat-trick and then made it a quartet of goals in the 61st minute.
But he saved his best until last. In the 70th minute, Balotelli completed the scoring in stunning style. He rinsed a defender with no less than step-overs that gave him a little space to shoot inside the area.

Stepovers for days then a rabona finish.

Instead of going with his left foot though, in typical Balotelli fashion, he went for a filthy rabona finish that beat the goalkeeper.
It could be the most Mario Balotelli goal ever. Slightly unnecessary but utterly incredible at the same time.
Footage of the ridiculous strike has gone viral on social media, with beIN Sports' Turkey page garnering 15 million views on the clip.
Balotelli becomes the first player since Fenerbahce's Alex de Souza to hit five goals in a Turkish Super Lig game.

Balotelli joined Adana from Serie B side Monza in the summer and signed a three-year deal with the newly-promoted side.
With Balotelli leading the line, Adana, coached by former AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella, finished ninth in their first season back in the top-flight.
