Drogba, who joined Galatasaray earlier this month following an ill-fated spell at Shanghai Shenhua, came on as a substitute in the 62nd minute with the score still goalless.

But the 34-year-old striker broke the deadlock just five minutes after his arrival with a looping header into the far corner of the net following good work from Burak Yılmaz.

Two minutes later Drogba turned provider, poking free a ball for Burak to score his 12th league goal of the season for the visitors.

Sertan Vardar pulled a goal back for the bottom side Akhisar on 85 minutes, but no one was able to overshadow Drogba's entry onto the Turkish stage.
