Black Eagles imposed their authority with the kick-off and took the lead on 30 minutes with newcomer Alex Teixeira’s great strike from outside the box that caught the visitors’ goal-keeper off guard. Gaining confidence, the home side continued to create chances in the remainder of the first half, yet it was still 1-0 for Beşiktaş going into the break. After losing their offensive midfielder Salih Uçan to red card at the start of the second half, the Black and Whites had to change tactics and opted for a more defensive play. But, despite a man advantage, the visitors Karagümrük failed to produce the equaliser in the remaining minutes as the Black Eagles ran out with all three points.
