Bilic – ‘We will play better against Liverpool than we did against Arsenal & Tottenham’ [divider]
Beşiktaş manager Slaven Bilic underlined that his side will put on a better performance against Liverpool than they did against Arsenal and Tottenham this season.
The Black Eagles lost 1-0 on aggregate against Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League play-off.
The Turkish giants also drew against Tottenham at White Hart Lane and beat Spurs 1-0 at the Atatürk Olympic stadium.
“We are going to play better than we did against Arsenal and Tottenham, we have to perform even better if we want to get a result against Liverpool,” Bilic told DHA.
Beşiktaş take on Liverpool at Anfield on Thursday 19 February in the Europa League Round of 32.
The Black Eagles have performed well against English opposition this season but lost 8-0 the last time they took on Liverpool at Anfield back in the 2007-08 Champions League group stages.
Beşiktaş secured a place in the Round of 32 in 1st place in Group C without losing a single group stage game.
The Black Eagles are currently 1st in the Süper Lig on 47 points after 20 games this season.
