Europa League review

Besiktas take control, Aris win

August 17, 2010

Goals from Roberto Hilbert and Ricardo Quaresma gave Turkish side Besiktas a comfortable advantage heading into next week's second leg of their Europa League play-off against HJK Helsinki.

German Hilbert opened the scoring in the 35th minute in Istanbul and Portuguese international Quaresma followed up with a crucial second midway through the second half to wrap up a 2-0 win.

In the night's only other Europa League play-off first-leg tie, substitute Carlos Ruiz pounced three minutes into injury-time to give Aris a 1-0 win over Austria Vienna in Thessaloniki.
