Fenerbahce bounced back from two consecutive draws with a comprehensive 5-2 defeat of Genclerbirligi on Friday, with Muriqi scoring two in the first half.

After the visitors took the lead early on, he later equalised with a superb, glancing header into the bottom left corner after a lofted cross from the right from Mauricio Isla.

Luis Gustavo then scored from range before Muriqi got his second in unconventional fashion. After a heavy touch from the defender, he slides in opportunistically to win possession inside the box before poking a finish beyond the oncoming goalkeeper.

He was a handful in other areas, too, winning the majority of his aerial duels, and making four ball recoveries, one interception, and one clearance for his side.
