Earlier on Wednesday the young Black Eagles suffered their second consecutive defeat in the group stages of the UEFA Youth League.

Beşiktaş needed to win following their 0-1 home defeat at the hands of Napoli on matchday 4, a tall order as Yasin Sülün had to do without his starplayer Muhammed Enes Durmuş. The first half ended in a 0-0 draw but as the Eagles pressed for a winner they were reduced to 10 men when Siyar Kepir saw his second yellow card in the 74th minute.

Benfica’s young striker José Gomes scored the opening goal a mere two  minutes after Kepir’s exclusion, a goal which seemingly opened the flood gates as Benfica scored twice more in the remaining time to finnish the match at 0-3. Beşiktaş’ U19s are now out of the Youth League with one more match left to be played, they travel to Kyiv on December 4th for their last European match of the season.
