STSL: Beşiktaş: 4 Osmanlıspor: 0

Updated: June 4, 2017

Beşiktaş have celebrated their newly won 15th Turkish league title with a resounding 4-0 win at the new dubbed Vodafone Park (name was changed from “Arena” to “Park”).

The Black Eagles had already clinched the title last weekend after beating Gaziantepspor 0-4 away, taking all the pressure off of this last match. The Beşiktaş players arrived in the Beşiktaş district via a convoy of yaughts on the Bosphorus straight in celebration of their title victory, they were welcomed by thousands of Beşiktaş fans who had come out to celebrate with the team prior to the match began.

The match itself turned in to just as much of a party as the pre-match celebrations with Beşiktaş’ topscorer Cenk Tosun opening the score after just 16 minutes. Dusko Tosic doubled the lead 31st minute while Vincent Aboubakar in the 73rd and again Cenk Tosun in the 89th minute completed the 4-0 victory, concluding the 2016/17 season in style for the Black Eagles.

With those two goals Cenk Tosun has hit 20 league goals, 3 short of Vagner Love who became this season’s topscorer and 6 short of Mario Gómez’s total tally in last season’s edition of the Turkish Süper Lig.

Şenol Güneş gave the opportunity to several players who have been mainly utilized as substitutes this season to play, with Marcelo getting surgery this past week Matej Mitrovic got the nod. While Andreas Beck started at rightback instead of Gökhan Gönül and Caner Erkin making his first start since his achilles injury instead of the Brazilian Adriano Correia.
