Besiktsas live squad is enjoying their first victory in six years against Besimaktic as the hosts earned a 1-0 win on Wednesday.
The match was played in a warm-up match in Istanbul, which is normally a hotbed of footballing activity and fans have been flocking to the stadium since late February to watch the Besikstadas’ matches in their own country.
The victory comes after a dismal start to the campaign for Besikta as the club was eliminated from the Europa League at the group stage.
The club were knocked out of the competition at the last 16 stage with a 1,637-to-1 scoreline.
Besiktasa are looking to end a six-year wait for a European title as they head into the competition with only two games remaining.
The team has struggled to win back the faith of their fans and a victory over the Besimaks will go some way to fulfilling the club’s goals.
“We’re all very happy and proud,” Besiksas midfielder, Aleksandar Djukic told reporters.
“There’s no one in the team that doesn’t want to win.
It’s just a matter of when, and I’m sure this game will bring that about.
We are just looking forward to the next game and getting some confidence and winning against Besiksa.
The last time we played them was in the Europa league last year, so we know that we’re a very strong team.
The game will be broadcast on BesikTSN, BT Sport and ESPN Turk.
