Egypt's red-hot striker Mostafa Mohamed scored his third goal in as many games for Galatasaray but his team exited the Turkish Cup following a 3-2 loss to Alanyaspor in the quarter-final on Wednesday.
Alanyaspor went 3-0 up with a brace from Khouma Babacar either side of the interval, including a penalty, and a goal from Salih Ucan.
Mohamed gave Galatasaray a glimmer of hope by netting on 83 minutes with a poacher's effort, reacting quickest to a rebound to stab the ball home.
Gedson Fernandes made it 3-2 in stoppage time but Galatasaray failed to find a decisive equaliser before the final whistle.
Mohamed continued his impressive start to life in Turkish football after joining from Cairo club Zamalek on a one-and-a-half-year loan deal.
He marked his debut by converting a penalty in Galatasray's 3-0 league win over Istanbul Basaksehir on 2 February before scoring a superb goal in their precious 1-0 derby victory over Istanbul rivals Fenerbahce last Saturday.
Galatasaray paid $2 million for Mohamed's services, with an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the year.
