Besiktas scored a goal in regular time to leave the tie deadlocked at 1-1, and when it came to penalties, all five Besiktas players held their nerve.

Liverpool continued their away resurgence as they beat Southampton 2-0 at St.Mary’s to go sixth in the Premiership, overtaking Spurs and narrowing the gap between themselves and Ronald Koeman’s side.
Philippe Coutinho’s great strike on 3 minutes and Raheem Sterling’s effort 70 minutes later sealed the deal for the Reds, who once again produced a great defensive performance. They have now not conceded an away goal since December (when they played Man Utd) at Old Trafford Continue reading
Besiktas won’t remember their last trip to Anfield too fondly, and it’s not without reason. Liverpool crushed them 8-0 that day, with Yossi Benayoun and Ryan Babel (remember him!) producing five goals between them. Steven Gerrard and Peter Crouch also scored for the Reds.

Two were substituted during Saturday’s Merseyside derby while the former Southampton star missed it altogether, but Brendan Rodgers hopes to have all three available on Tuesday
Liverpool will give late fitness checks to Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana ahead of Tuesday’s Premier League game against Tottenham.
Brazilian midfielder Coutinho lasted 56 minutes of Saturday’s Merseyside derby against Everton before coming off with a knee injury, while winger Sterling was also substituted in the closing stages due to a foot problem.
Lallana was not included for the trip to Goodison Park, the former Southampton man having been troubled by a calf complaint, but manager Brendan Rodgers is hopeful that all three could be fit when Spurs visit Anfield.
“Phil Coutinho had a knock on his knee and Raheem had a knock on his foot,” Rodgers told the club’s official website.
“We had fresh players on the bench to bring on and hopefully they will be fit for Tuesday.”
On Lallana, the manager added: “We need to see how he is but he has a big possibility for Tuesday.”
