The Besiktas, with Gary Medel as starter and Enzo Roco from the second half, saved a draw as a visit to the Partizan of Belgrade in the first stage of the final stage of the Europa League.
The Turkish box came to life from a heavy scenario like Belgrade. Attacker Ricardo Gomes opened the bill for the hosts in 14 minutes, but Besiktas reached equality only a few seconds later thanks to Tolgay Arslan.
Medel started in the middle of the field with Uysal and Arslan, while Roco entered the last line to replace Pepe after 76 minutes of play. The return to Turkey is scheduled for 30 August.
