Beşiktaş edge past Feyenoord in close contest

Feyenoord 1-2 Beşiktaş JK
Goals from Mustafa Pektemek and Kerim Koyunlu edged Beşiktaş past last season's Eredivisie runners-up, who pulled one back late on.

Feyenoord scored a 95th-minute penalty but still succumbed 2-1 at home to Beşiktaş JK, putting the Turkish outfit in charge of their UEFA Champions League third qualifying round tie.

Away goals from Mustafa Pektemek (13) and Kerim Koyunlu (71) could prove decisive in Beşiktaş' bid to reach the play-offs, though Feyenoord youngster Mitchell Te Vrede converted from the spot after Ramon Motta's foul to ensure the hosts didn't go home empty handed.

Beşiktaş took control of the match early on, breaking the deadlock when Turkish international Pektemek met a deep Oğuzhan Özyakup corner with an emphatic header. Beşiktaş could have doubled their advantage just six minutes later when Özyakup played another fantastic ball into the box only to see the chance go begging.

Slaven Bilić's men eventually found a second after a mistake by Joris Mathijsen gifted the 20-year-old Koyunlu the chance to make it two. Te Vrede restored some Dutch pride by tucking in his spot-kick deep into added time after second-half substitute Motta felled Elvis Manu in the box.

Beşiktaş, who finished third in the 2013/14 Turkish Super League season behind champions Fenerbahçe and second-placed Galatasaray, will relish the chance to edge closer to the group stage in front of their home crowd when they host the second-leg in Istanbul next week.
