Watch: The Full And Ridiculously Good Penalty Shootout Between Lyon And Besiktas

Lyon are through to the semi-finals of the Europa League after a seriously high-quality shootout against Besiktas.

After the Turkish side claimed a 2-1 win after 90 minutes, the teams could not be separated during the half-hour of extra-time, so the neutrals got exactly what they wanted in a penalty shootout...

And it was awesome.

The French side will join Manchester United, Ajax, and Celta Vigo in the semi-finals.

There nothing is quite like a penalty shootout for drama, and when they are all of such high quality it's a seriously enjoyable watch. That was a lesson in how to take a spot-kick, until the 13th pen, of course.

Besiktas vs Lyon was certainly an eventful tie.
