STSL: Beşiktaş: 3 Kasımpaşa: 3

Updated: October 30, 2015

babelThe Black Eagles have squandered two of their four point lead tonight as they needed a last minute penalty to secure a point against Kasımpaşa.

It was a strange game for Beşiktaş as they found themselves being a goal down a total of three times tonight.

The visitors opened the score after a bad clearance by Alexander Milosevic wound up in Tunay Torun’s feet who squared it to Eren Derdiyok, the Swiss international torpedoed the ball in to the top corner, beating Tolga Zengin for the first time on the night.

It did not last long however for the Black Eagles to bounce back, only two minutes later Luiz Rhodolfo leveled up the score with his first goal of the season, after a dangerous Oguzhan Ôzyakup corner.

Germany coach Joachim Löw watched Mario Gómez score his 8th Süper Lig goal in 10 games.

But the visitors again managed to take the lead just before half time, Ryan Donk won the ball in midfield and tried his luck with a ferocious long range effort, the Dutchman was right to do so and beat Tolga Zengin for the second time on the evening with a fabulous strike.

Şenol Güneş did not hesitate to make changes and brought on José Sosa and Gökhan Töre at halftime for Ricardo Quaresma and Necip Uysal.

One of his substitutions would pay off quickly as José Sosa’s pinpoint through ball reached Mario Gómez. The German left Andreas Isaksson chanceless and scored his 8th goal of the season under the gaze of Germany coach Joachim Löw.

The Black Eagles wanted a penalty several minutes later after Gökhan Töre went down in the box after an aerial challenge by Kasimpaşa’s Brazilian defender Titi, but the referee would have none of it.

The Black Eagles continued patiently to find an opening, but the visitors did well to close their ranks and stuck to their gameplan.

Joachim Löw: “I’m not just here to watch Mario Gómez, I’m also here to watch Andreas Beck.”

Once again the visitors would shock the home crowd. In what was the first time the visitors poked their noses at the window in the second half, Eren Derdiyok once again, beat Tolga Zengin in the 15 minutes after Gómez’ equalizer.

Şenol Güneş had no choice but to put all his poker chips on the table at this point and took off Alexander Milosevic, a central defender, in favour of an extra striker: Cenk Tosun.

Cenk almost immediatly put Isaksson to the test with hard shot, which was deflected in to corner. But the visitors continued to put high pressure on the Black Eagles, forcing them in to many errors.

Much more than before now Beşiktaş were losing the ball and even had difficulty getting off from their own half due to Kasimpaşa’s excellent pressing.

Ultimately when it looked like Beşiktaş were going to suffer their second defeat of the season they got a penalty deep in to extra time after Ryan Donk blocked a shot from Oguzhan Özyakup with his hands.

Oguzhan Özyakup took the penalty himself and leveled things up in the fourth minute of stoppage time. This would prove enough for a hard fought point as the Black Eagles remain on top of het table, but see their four point lead reduced to two.
