Simao is among the goalscorers as Beskitas take a 2-0 goal lead back to Turkey against Braga.

Portuguese winger Simao was among the goalscorers as Besiktas recorded a 2-0 victory away at Braga in the Europa League this evening.

The home side's cause was not helped by a red card to Helder Barbosa during the first half. The 24-year-old was handed his marching orders in the 29th minute for a second bookable offence.

Turkish side Besiktas made their numerical advantage count in the 37th minute when centre-back Tomas Sivok guided the ball into the net from close range.

Former Atletico Madrid winger Simao scored his side's second in the 58th minute following a passing move.

The two teams will meet next week for the return leg in Turkey.
