Karius makes another error as Besiktas loses in Europa League

Besiktas slipped to a 2-0 away loss against Malmo in the Europa League, with on-loan goalkeeper Loris Karius culpable for the first goal.

Loris Karius made a poor mistake on his second European appearance for Besiktas after joining the Turkish giants on loan from Liverpool.

Besiktas was beaten 2-0 away to Malmo in Group I on Thursday, with Karius at fault for the opening goal. A cross from the right wing took a deflection that deceived Karius, who attempted to tip the ball over his own crossbar.

But, the goalkeeper only managed to flap at the ball, which landed in his own net, with the goal credited as an own goal by Caner Erkin.

Karius, who made two awful errors in Liverpool's defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final, was beaten again in the second half.

Erkin was booked for fouling Andreas Vindheim in the penalty box, with Markus Rosenberg stepping up to convert from 12 yards.

Group I is wide open after two rounds of fixtures, with all four teams having taken three points. Karius kept his first clean sheet for Besiktas at the weekend as Senol Gunes' side beat Kayserispor 2-0 at home.
