Besiktas must recreate Arsenal & Tottenham atmosphere against Liverpool says Bilic [divider]
Beşiktaş fans must recreate a similar atmosphere to the one they did against Arsenal, Tottenham and Feyenoord for Liverpool game according to manager Slaven Bilic.
The Black Eagles lost the first leg of the Europa League Round of 32 1-0 at Anfield.
The 72,000 Atatürk Olympic stadium was filled to near full capacity in the European games against Spurs, the Gunners and Feyenoord.
“The atmosphere at the Feyenoord, Arsenal and Tottenham games really was amazing, we need to recreate this against Liverpool, if we do we have a great chance,” Bilic told Turkish-football.com reporters at the post-match press conference.
Beşiktaş are playing temporarily at the Atatürk Olympic as the Inönü stadium is currently being rebuilt.
The Black Eagles have struggled to fill the Atatürk Olympic this season due to a number of factors.
Beşiktaş ultra group Çarşı has boycotted the Passolig e-ticketing system and transportation to the stadium has been an issue.
The controversial Passolig system will not be compulsory for the return-leg and ticket prices have been cut in order to fill the stadium.
Beşiktaş have yet to lose against English opposition in European competition this season.
The Eagles beat Tottenham in the Europa League group stages, drew against Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League play-offs and beat Chelsea in the Soma charity tournament.
