Besiktas continue preparations for Liverpool clash


Besiktas have continued their preparations for their Europa League clash with Liverpool on Thursday.

Slaven Bilic lead the session at the Nevzat Demir training facility under light snow fall. The Croatian manager worked closely with his side on tactics and observed an inter-squad training match.

Demba Ba only participated in light training due to a minor muscle injury while Alexander Milosevic, İsmail Köybaşı and Tolga Zengin were unable to train due to injuries.

The Senegalese international is expected to start Thursday’s game for Besiktas.
