Nightmare for Besiktas in Kiev !
All Besiktas need it to win in Kiev so they could qualify to knockout stage in the Champions League
Against the last team in the group , they could not do that !
In the very beginning of the match (9th minute) they went down 1-0 ...
That was big surprise for Senol Gunes who was bundled up on the sideline with heavy coat hood covering his head !
After the goal Besiktas , Besiktas was pushing up to find the equalizer goal to tie the match ..
Quarezma and Olcay Sahan missed a couple good chances before the disaster penalty kick call by referee Craig Thomson !
In the 30th minute, counterattack by Kiev led the awful penalty call and red card by referee Craig Thomson ..
That was never penalty and with new rule change was not red card !
Craig Thomson butchered Besiktas's dream with that call ...
Besiktas never recovered after that !
Two minutes later Kiev scored again ..
Besiktas closed the first half with four goals and a man down ...
In the beginning of the second half , Besiktas' s Vincent Aboubakar was send off the filed with red card ...
Nine man Besiktas, was pretty much done in Kiev !
After that Kiev scored two more goal and match finish with the score of 6-0 !
Besiktas went into match with high expectations but, thouse expectations turn into nightmare thanks to Craig Thomson and his linesman AND the Besiktas defense ...
Although Referee was huge factor in this match but we can't overlook how Besiktas defense played poorly!
Also Besiktas could create attacks on Kiev goal ...
While Kiev had 17 attempts on Besiktas goal , Besiktas had only 6 !
Besiktas had a really good chance to make it to knockout round but their dream vanished by Craig Thomson and not playing well as a team !
After the match, Besiktas coach said " I am taking the blame for not playing good "
