Jurgen Klopp's side can't afford to lost at home to Spartak Moscow, because if they do and Sevilla beat Maribor then Liverpool will crash out of the Champions League at the group stage.

"Besiktas were the team to beat in our group and we want to prove that we're capable of beating a team like that in the Champions League".

Turkish football team Besiktas defeated Germany's Leipzig on Wednesday to become the first Turkish club to advance to the UEFA Champions League's round of 16 level.

But the result in Leipzig was ultimately rendered irrelevant by events elsewhere, as Porto's 5-2 win over Monaco put qualification out of the Red Bull franchise's reach and ensured it was the Portuguese club who claimed second place in Group G.

Although Leipzig had a numerical disadvantage, they were eventually able to restore parity through Naby Keita, who benefitted on a fast break with three minutes to the final whistle.

Alvaro Negredo scored the opening goal for Besiktas in the 10th minute from the penalty spot.

But Talisca's goal in the 90th minute gave the Black Eagles a boost into last 16.

The Germans must pick up more points against group winners Besiktas than Porto do at home to eliminated Monaco if they are to snatch the second spot.

It is the only Turkish team to qualify from the group stage undefeated and advanced as the group leader. The Italian club's hopes of snatching second place in Group F, however, were hit as Feyenoord fought back to equalise through Nicolai Jorgensen before claiming the dramatic victor and their first points in this year's group stage.

Besiktas striker Cem Tosun also expressed his confidence following the game. It doesn't really matter who we get in the next round because the 16 that remain are the best of the best.
