Watch: Ricardo Quaresma's 'Trivela' Goal In Istanbul Derby Is A Thing Of Beauty
Ricardo Quaresma was the match-winner as Besiktas came from a goal down to win the Istanbul derby against Fenerbahce last night.
The visitors went ahead through Fernandao eight minutes in, with Domagoj Vida, sent off against Bayern Munich in the Champions League in midweek, levelling matters five minutes after half-time.
But from then on it was the Quaresma show, the Portugal international bagging a brilliant brace to get his side back to winning ways and move ahead of Fenerbahce into third place in the Turkish Super League.
His first goal, scored in the 77th minute to put the hosts 2-1, was breathtakingly brilliant. The well-travelled winger received the ball on the right side of the penalty area and looked like he was shaping up to cut in on his weaker left foot.
Instead, he busted out an outrageous outside of the boot strike that flew past Carlos Kameni and into the top corner. Pure filth.
The 'trivela' golazo was so good that the former Barcelona, Chelsea and Inter Milan man posted it on his official Instagram page.

Here at SPORTbible, we're suckers for an outside of the boot and there's no denying that Quaresma is the absolute master of the skill.
Never seen another player capable of using the trivela to such devastating effect as Ricardo Quaresma does. Another stunning goal today for Besiktas.

Though he's not quite reached the level he ought to given the insane amount of ability he possesses, he's still an absolute joy to watch when in full flow.
Back in December, in a game against Osmanlispor, Quaresma busted out a touch of the season contender that left us all salivating at the mouth.
