Lokomotiv earned a point against Besiktas in the 4th round of the Europa League group stage.
Compared to the game against Kuban', Lokomotiv decided to make some changes. In particular, Cherevchenko replaced Logashov with Shishkin in the defense after the disappointing performance on Sunday.
The first half saw Besiktas controlling the ball's possession and trying to make up some dangerous opportunities. At the same time, Lokomotiv waited them and was ready to attack on counterattacks. However, both teams weren't able to create something notable.
In the second half, everything changed. Quaresma replaced Sahan and after a few minutes the Portuguese midfielder helped Besiktas to take the lead.
Lokomotiv continued playing its match and 15 minutes before the final whistle, Niasse equalized the score on a Miranchuk's assist.
In the final minutes of the game, Guilherme demonstrated his great value making some amazing saves. At 93' Skuletic could have scored the 1:2, but Zengin sent the ball in corner.
Lokomotiv earned a good point in Istanbul and stayed at the first place in the group's table.
