Adana Demirspor 1 – 4 Besiktas – Besiktas keep their cup dreams alive


Besiktas have kept their chances of winning the Ziraat Turkish Cup alive with a 4-1 victory over Adana Demirspor.

The Black Eagles look set for a comfortable win after taking the lead after just seven minutes, but were pegged back three minutes late when Özcan found the back of the net. Demba Ba, Nukan and Cenk Tosun scored for the away side in the second half.

Bilic decided to field a weakened squad despite facing the prospect of elimination had his side lost. Slaven Bilic opted to start with several youth players including 21-year-old defender Atınç Nukan. Second choice striker Cenk Tosun was also been given the nod ahead of Senegalese international Demba Ba.

Beşiktaş are currently second in Group F with six points in four games.
