The Turkish Grand Besiktas have this season taken one of the most catastrophic European campaigns, despite the serious summer transfers. The Black Eagles failed to skip the unpretentious group I in the Europa League after losing 0: 1 from Malmö home.
In his six games, Besiktas lost 3 times and the 7 won points were not enough. They were third in the final ranking, while Genk (11) and Sweden (9) continued. The colossal collapse of our southern neighbor was complete, because in the house against Malmö the team of Schönell Güneş did not even have to win, and a point would have been enough (given that Genk Outsider had met Sarpsborg at home and then crashed with a 4 : 0).
In the starting grid with well-known names like Loris Karius, former player Adriano Korea, Domagoji Vida, Gary Medel, Breath Ljajic, Ricardo Quaresma and Wagner Hunt, the hosts could not handle the not so difficult mission.

Big shot Malmö scored 51 minutes into the match, as Marcus Rosenberg found a long pass through the opposing central defense and missed it when Kus did not get the chance to stand out again. The latter was generally ahead of Besiktas, who fell three times in the match on the door frame – twice in the 11th minute, and the third time – via Kyle Larin – was in the 3rd minute of the sequel.
Besiktas had plenty of chances to win even the game, but the opponent's goal was a real shock and had disastrous consequences, mainly on a psychological plan for the Turkish team. They became particularly prominent in the 65th minute when European champion Ricardo Quareschma lowered his nerves and stepped brutally onto Frank Broschon's shin, who first came to a controversial ball with a spaghetti. The referee immediately removed the Portuguese from a match and after the game he was logically considered one of the "sinners" according to Besiktas fans.

Overall, the biggest dissatisfaction was aimed at foreign players, with numerous calls for Quaresma, Medell, Karius, Ljajic and Adriano to be removed from the team. The Turkish national Ouguzan Ozaakup has also suffered quite a few negatives.
