The Portuguese visitors started as the better side and took the lead after 10 minutes on a goal from Gonçalo Guedes. While Beşiktaş were trying to recover, Nelson Semedo and Ljubomir Fejsa added two more before the first half hour and put the game virtually out of reach. The demoralised Black Eagles failed to respond in the remaining minutes to trail 3-0 at the break. Refusing to surrender,Beşiktaş pulled one back through Cenk Tosun on 58 minutes before Ricardo Quaresma cutting the deficit to one from a penalty-kick 8 minutes from the full-time. Beşiktaş pressed desperately for the equaliser in the remainder of the game, and their dream would come true in the 89th-minute when Aboubakar finished off Quaresma’s rabona cross to even up the scores for good.
