Besiktas shocked the world and made in the history boooks by beating Manchester United in the Old Trafford with on goal......

Rodrigo Tello netted against the run of play in the 20th minute to give Besiktas a famous victory over Sir Alex Ferguson's much-changed side.

Nemanja Vidic had a great chance to put United ahead in the 13th minute but could not direct his header on target from Anderson's corner.

Seven minutes later, Tello put the visitors ahead when his long range effort took a deflection off Rafael and past the diving Ben Foster.

Gabriel Obertan's effort from close range was then well saved by Recber Rustu, while at the other end, Michael Fink's shot hit the post and went out after a fine passing move had cut the United defence open.

In the second period, Obertan shot and forced a fine save from Rustu before heading the subsequent corner just over, while Patrice Evra had a valid penalty claim turned down late on after being impeded by Ibrahim Kas in the box.

Rustu Recber then produced fine saves to deny first Federico Macheda and then Wes Brown in injury time to earn his side the win.

The defeat means Ferguson's side still need a point in their final group game against Wolfsburg on 8th December to ensure they top Group B, while Besiktas host CSKA Moscow in the other tie aiming to reach the Europa League.
This is a huge win for Besiktas and Mustafa Denizli...

Kudos to Besiktas and Mustafa DEnizli>
