Lens and Özyakup strand in preliminary round CL against the PAOK of Biseswar

Diego Biseswar and his team PAOK won the second preliminary round of the Champions League at the expense of Besiktas. Biseswar, who himself stayed on the bench the whole game, saw his team win 3-1 against Jeremain Lens and Oguzhan Özyakup.

All the action in Thessaloniki came mainly in the first half of the duel. After half an hour of play, the Greeks were 3-0 ahead thanks to goals by Christos Tzolis (2x) and Dimitros Pelkas.

Lens played the whole game at Besiktas, just like former PSV player Atiba Hutchinson. Özyakup, the Zaandammer with Turkish roots who played for Feyenoord on a rental basis last season, was on the pitch for the second half
