Ricardo Quaresma scores his late winner for Besiktas against Maccabi Tel Aviv

Ricardo Quaresma's injury-time goal gave Besiktas a dramatic 3-2 win over Maccabi Tel Aviv in Europa League Group D to boost their hopes of reaching the last 32.

Besiktas squandered a two-goal lead and seemed to be heading for a point until Quaresma struck with a goal which meant the Turks are guaranteed to progress if they beat group winners Stoke in Istanbul next month.

The visitors grabbed the lead right on the stroke of half-time when Quaresma fired home with a right-foot shot from the left side of the penalty area.

Besiktas doubled their lead within two minutes of the restart when Manuel Fernandes swung in a corner from the left and Ibrahim Toraman rose highest to nod past Maccabi goalkeeper Barak Levi from six yards.

Tel Aviv were back in the match on the hour mark when Savo Pavicevic's corner was knocked on by Israelevich to Shiran Yeyni who pounced to drill home low from six yards.

And the visitors were stunned in the 72nd minute when Tel Aviv wiped out their two-goal deficit when Moshe Lugasi fired into the top corner of the net from 20 yards.

Just when time seemed to have run out for the Turkish side, Quaresma kept his nerve to slide home the winner from 18 yards to give them the best possible chance of joining Stoke in the next stage.
