Beşiktaş are capable of beating Club Brugge according to the Black Eagles head coach Slaven Bilic.

The Turkish giants lost the first leg in Belgium 2-1 but have the chance to turn things around at the Atatürk Olympic staidum.

“If we play as well as we can, we will qualify for the quarter-finals,” Bilic told the official UEFA website.

The Croatian manager underlined that his side were actually the better side for much of the first-leg but that they fell off the pace in the last half an hour.

“In the first leg we were not under any pressure until the last 30 minutes – then Club Brugge took control and beat us,” he added.

Beşiktaş go into the second-leg as league leaders following their 5-1 win over Erciyesspor on the weekend.

The Black Eagles have also yet to lose a home game in European competition this season.

Beşiktaş will book a place in the Europa League under its current format for the first time if they knock Club Brugge out of the competition.
