STSL: Kayserispor: 0 Beşiktaş: 1

Updated: October 15, 2016

Beşiktaş have come away with another 3 golden points following a 0-1 win on the road against Kayserispor. The Black Eagles remain unbeaten so far in the 2016/17 Süper Lig season and go top of the table.

The current Süper Lig Champions started with a clear intent to retrieve the 3 points and that led to several chances, but Muammer Yildirim kept out Talisca, Cenk Tosun and Vincent Aboubakar repeatedly.

The hosts had one good opportunity themselves through striker Welliton, although it should have probably been called off for offside, but Fabri did well to keep the Brazilian out and he failed to squeeze in the rebound.

Fabricio Agosto Ramirez has made his 5th consecutive start in the Süper Lig and has kept his 3rd clean sheet.

Beşiktaş missed several players and started the match in a very abstract 4-1-3-1-2 formation which saw the wings under- and the center over-populated. Despite that the Black Eagles were unlucky not to be in the lead at halftime and the hosts had their goalkeeper Muammer to thank for that.

During halftime Vincent Aboubakar was taken off and Ricardo Quaresma came on for Beşiktaş. The Black Eagles started the second half firmly in control but after 5 or 6 minutes they allowed the hosts to take brief control of the match which led to a few dangerous looking attacks, most notably a shot from just outside the box from Prejuce Nakoulma which hit the bar on it’s way out.

Cenk Tosun had the best chance prior to the actual goal to put the Eagles in front, Necip Uysal crossed in the ball low from the right wing but Cenk’s first touch let him down which allowed the defender to block his shot.

Beşiktaş would end up taking the lead however as substitute Ömer Şişmanoğlu received the ball from Andreas Beck following a Caner Erkin corner: 0-1 after 67 minutes.

Following the goal the Black Eagles invited some pressure from the hosts but Kayserispor were unable to turn that in to any real danger, they got a few corners but none looked particularly dangerous and goalkeeper Fabricio had a pretty quiet night.

In the second minute of second half stoppage time Kayserispor defender Larrys Mabiala received a second yellow card and Beşiktaş calmly played out the game taking no unnecessary risk and bagged another 3 points.
