Sporting secure an impressive — and much-needed — 4-1 victory. The visitors asserted their dominance in a breathless first half. Sporting started well when Coates headed in from a corner, but Besiktas equalised when Larin headed in a corner of their own. But Besiktas were exposed again when Coates scored an identical goal to make it 2-1. Sporting punished Besiktas from another corner when Coates headed it against Vida's arm to win a penalty. Sarabia stepped up to roll the spot-kick in to make it 3-1 but there was still time for more drama. Teixeira scored a stunning volley on the stroke of half-time, only for VAR to rule it out. The second half was a more sedate affair as Sporting sat on their lead, but there was still an opportunity for a fourth goal, when Paulinho curled in a brilliant strike from range.
