Mohamed scored the opener in minute 38 at Turk Telekom Stadium when he followed a rebound from goalkeeper Goktug Bakirbas and fired a low strike into the net.

In minute 45, Mohamed doubled the gap when the 23-year-old received a long pass from Christian Luyindama in the area and made a vicious right-footed shot toward goal. The ball hit the crossbar before going into the net.

Galatasaray clinched the shutout victory for their eighth straight win in the Super Lig.

The Lions have 57 points to lead the league.

Besiktas is second with 54 points and Fenerbahce have 51 to round up the top three in the standings.
