Beşiktaş – Liverpool game difficult to predict says Albayrak [divider]

Beşiktaş press officer Metin Albayrak believes the Europa League Round of 32 match against Liverpool will be difficult to predict a winner.

“Hopefully we get our revenge, we are hopeful that we will win the tie,” Albayrak said.

“It is hard to make any predictions, I think we are of equal strength and we believe in ourselves and can make it through to the next round.

“It is an advantage that we are playing the first leg in Liverpool.

“The match in Turkey is going to be very important, the technical staff will begin their plans now.”

Liverpool beat the Black Eagles 8-0 last time they met at Anfield in the 2007-08 Champions League group stage – a competition record.

Beşiktaş have played Premier League opposition four times this season – draw and a loss against Arsenal, a win and a draw against Tottenham.
