Bilic still believes Besiktas can make it past Club Brugge [divider]
Beşiktaş manager Slaven Bilic believes his side can still make it past Club Brugge and book a place in the Europa League Last 16.
The Black Eagles lost the first-leg in Belgium 2-1 and will take on Club Brugge at the Atatürk Olympic stadium next Thursday.
“However, we will give everything we’ve got in Istanbul to qualify from this round,” Bilic told the official Beşiktaş website.
Beşiktaş will take solace from the fact they also lost the first leg against Liverpool in the Round of 32 but managed to win the tie in Istanbul.
The Black Eagles are unbeaten in European competition this season in Istanbul, including games against Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool.
The defeat was the Eagles first against Belgium opposition in Europe.
Beşiktaş will host Kayseri Erciyesspor next but the game will be played in Ankara as the Inönü stadium is currently being rebuilt.
