While the Eagles struggled to find the net early on, sparked by Hugo Rocha’s goals, the Portuguese hosts opened up a three-goal 8:5 lead midway through the first-half. However, thanks to 4 goals from Tolga Özbahar Beşiktaş managed to pull within 14:13 heading into the break. Led by Captain Ramazan Döne, who finished with a game-high 11 goals, Coach Müfit Arın’s men looked a different team in the second half as they eventually gained the upper-hand to sneak out a narrow but valuable win on the road.
