The Greek champions were held to a 1-1 in the first leg, however, their European adventure was on the brink of collapse tonight with Besiktas taking a 2-0 lead through Vincent Aboubakar and Ryan Babel in the first 30 minutes.
That was until Elyounoussi executed a perfectly timed volley after connecting with Aly Cissokho’s inch-perfect cross.
In fairness, the Norweigan’s strike does take a slight deflection before rippling the back of the net, but it would surely be plain cruel for the dubious goals panel to take this one away:

And as if Elyounoussi’s goal wasn’t enough to give the Olympiakos reasons to dream, just 10 minutes later Besiktas’ first goal scorer Aboubakar was shown a straight red by the referee.
Game most definitely on then!
