Besiktas must focus on Fenerbahce derby now says Bilic [divider]
Beşiktaş manager Slaven Bilic underlined that his side must forget about their Europa League Last 16 exit and focus on the derby against Fenerbahçe.
“Now, we must get over this loss quickly and look ahead to our match against Fenerbahçe,” Bilic told the official Beşiktaş website.
The Black Eagles bowed out of the Europa League against Club Brugge, losing 5-2 on aggregate.
Beşiktaş lost 2-1 in Belgium and suffered a shock 3-1 defeat in the return leg at the Atatürk Olympic stadium.
The Turkish giants blew a one goal lead in both games which led to criticism of Slaven Bilic’s squad selection and formation.
Bilic started with a 4-4-2 setup against Club Brugge. Beşiktaş have played with a 4-2-3-1 for much of the season.
Atiba Hutchinson and Jose Sosa missed both legs of the Club Brugge game but will be back against Fenerbahçe.
The Yellow Canaries have the best home record in the league and recently beat Galatasaray 1-0 in the Intercontinental derby at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium.
