FC Porto striker Mehdi Taremi celebrates after scoring his team’s winner during a 1-0 victory over Farense at Estádio de São Luís, Faro, Portugal, on January 25, 2021.
Mehdi Taremi retained his goalscoring habits when he was back in the FC Porto outfit, helping the Portuguese champion to a Primeira Liga 1-0 victory over Farense on Monday.
The Iranian striker tapped in a Wilson Manafá’s low cross with 15 minutes into the game for his 10th goal in all competitions for the Dragons this season.
Taremi, who missed last Tuesday’s cup game against Sporting Lisbon through suspension following a red card in the Benfica game, has played a part in eight goals in the last seven games for Porto.
The Primeira Liga’s Best Striker of the Month in December, who left Rio Ave to join Porto in the summer, has now got on the scoresheet on 25 occasions in the league since starting his career in Portugal in July 2019, the highest tally for any player in the history of the Portuguese top-flight in the same duration, according to Opta Sports.
