Atiba goes the full 90 as Besiktas crush Rizespor 7-2.

Larin stays stapled to the bench.

Too bad 5 goals came in the final 26 minutes.  A 20 year old Turkish/German striker was chosen ahead of Larin with 12 minutes left and scored a hat trick.  Not a good sign for Larin that another younger attacker came in and took his chances.  A flurry of late goals and they even gave a 17 year old defender a few minutes at the end.

At this point clearly behind Pektemek & Yilmaz as the striker and possibly even the 20 year old Yalcin.  Add in some other world class attacking midfielders/wingers such as Kagawa, Ljajic & Jeremain Lens and hes fallen quite far down.

The only positives would be having Atiba there to support him and long-term Besiktas may unlikely be able to financially hold onto some of their players.  Larin's salary wouldn't fall under this category.

It's starting to look unlikely that they will qualify for the Champions league and even more unlikely that they don't qualify for Europa League.  So let's hope he gets some minutes at the end of the season when the games are less meaningful.

They did!

Game finished 0-0. Great away performance against one of the highest rated MLS teams in 2019. Piette was immense, and ZBG did not disappoint. The other Canadians held there own out there as well, but too bad AJH couldn't get on the scoresheet in his opportunity, chances have been hard to come for him.

ZBG looked confident and superb out there & Piette was an absolute beast. 

All other Canadians held there own, especially like @Obinna stated, an away game vs one of top rated MLS teams. Was nice to see Shome given another shot after the 7-0 thumping a few weeks back.

He was arguably the biggest surprise. I did not expect him to have a game like that.

What about Bayiha? Shades of Tabla in that lad.

Honestly, I should have commended and complimented all of them.

Pretty awesome seeing 6 young Canadians hold their own out there.
