Club Brugge forward Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo delighted with brace against Beşiktaş in the Europa League Last 16 second-leg game at the Atatürk Olympic stadium.
“[Coming off the bench to score twice] felt good for me. It was a difficult game in the first half and then in the second half we saw that there were more space and I came in and I tried to do my best, I tried to do everything and I scored two goals,” Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo told the official UEFA website.
Club Brugge ended up winning the game 3-1 and went through to the Europa League quarter-finals 5-2 on aggregate.
Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo underlined that his side showed great character in being able to come back after Beşiktaş took the lead.
“Yes we showed character [to complete the comeback]. After conceding the goal, we knew it was not finished and we go for it. That’s why we keep it going during the game, I think the team did it well,” he added.
Beşiktaş blew a one goal lead in home and away against the Belgium giants.
Club Brugge remain unbeaten in European competition this season and became the first side to beat Beşiktaş in Istanbul.
