 Loris Karius made another clanger

Besiktas goalkeeper Loris Karius was at the centre of attention on Thursday night after he gifted Slovan Bratislava the lead in Thursday's Europa League clash.

The 26-year-old, who is on loan at the Turkish club from Liverpool, committed a giant blunder when he came rushing out of his box and attempted to head the ball clear.

Instead, however, he failed to make a clean connection and ended up knocking over Besiktas centre-back Rebocho, allowing Bratislava striker Andraz Sporar to pass into the empty net and give his side the lead just 14 minutes into the match.

The incident may have been an embarrassing one for the German shot stopper, but he was eventually bailed out by his team-mates as Besiktas recovered to take the lead before half-time, though Sporar went on to level matters again in the second-half.

Adem Ljajic pulled the Turkish side level with a penalty just before the half-hour mark and then Bratislava captain Vasil Bozhikov turned Georges-Kévin Nkoudou's cross into his own net, ensuring Karius was not the only player left with a red face.
