Besiktas fails to advance to UEFA Europa League semis
Besiktas failed to advance Thursday to the UEFA Europa League semifinals after falling to Olympique Lyon in a nail-biting penalty shootout at the Vodafone Arena.
Besiktas needed to score in the second half given the fact that the first leg of the home-and-home in France ended 2-1 in Lyon's favor.
The action went to a penalty shootout and Besiktas and Lyon each managed to score on their first six shoots.
After misses by Dusko Tosic and Matej Mitrovic for Besiktas and a miss by Christophe Jallet for Lyon, the stage was set for Maxime Gonalons to give his team the win.
The Lyon captain confidently stroked home the winning shot to send his team to the semifinals.
