Beşiktaş to face Man Utd on Wednesday

Manchester United FC will look to cement their position at the top of Group B when they welcome Beşiktaş JK to Old Trafford on Matchday 5.

The English champions booked their place in the last 16 when they fought back to draw 3-3 with PFC CSKA Moskva last time out and, with a three-point lead over VfL Wolfsburg, they can take another step towards top spot by beating Beşiktaş.

Besiktas will be going to Old Trafford with high moral after beating rivals Fenerbahce in the Istanbul derby 3-0 with an impressive performance by the team as a whole.


The visitors’ UEFA Champions League hopes ended with their Matchday 4 home defeat by Wolfsburg but they could yet overturn the three-point deficit on third-placed CSKA and claim a UEFA Europa League berth.

Another motivating factor for Beşiktaş is the memory of their last visit to England’s north-west when they suffered a 8-0 defeat at Liverpool FC – their biggest European loss and a UEFA Champions League record.

Beşiktaş have lost five and drawn two of the seven away matches they have played since they last won on their travels in the UEFA Champions League, a 2-0 success at United’s Premier League rivals Chelsea FC in October 2003.

Bobo, Serdar ozkan, Ibrahim Toraman and Ibrahim Uzulmez were all in the Beşiktaş starting lineup for the club’s 8-0 defeat at Anfield on 6 November 2007.
