Liverpool have some rather mixed memories when it comes to playing Besiktas in Europe.
Jurgen Klopp's men have avoided the high-flying Turks in this season's Champions League group draw as they traverse clashes with Sevilla, Spartak Moscow and Maribor. The Reds currently sit top after two convincing wings over the group whipping boys.
And their old foes have also been impressing on the continent having recently put 2004 winners FC Porto to the sword in front of their own fans.
The likes of Pepe, Ricardo Quaresma, Jeremain Lens and even Ryan Babel have made the Turkish champions a force to be reckoned with this season.
Furthermore, although they will likely settle as one of the weakest group winners, nobody will be over the moon with a daunting trip to Istanbul and neither will Liverpool if there's any late slip-ups.
Besides, the Reds weren't afraid to tempt fate with their Instagram activity yesterday.
November 6 marked the decade anniversary of one of Liverpool's most emphatic European nights at Anfield when Besiktas' march to Merseyside culminated in an 8-0 bludgeoning. The club's social media team was keen to celebrate the occasion.
Yossi Benayoun fired home a hat-trick under the floodlights, Peter Crouch and Babel chipped in with respective braces before Steven Gerrard ensured his place on the scoresheet, too.
However, that's all well and good but most supporters forget that the return fixture didn't end so well for the previous year's finalists. Sami Hyypia put through his own net and Bobo later scored a second as Liverpool left the Vodafone Arena pointless.
That's not to mention the fact their 2015 Europa League visit to Istanbul finished in equally calamitous fashion.
A 1-0 defeat in regulation time levelled the two-leg affair before Dejan Lovren's miss from the spot confined the Reds to penalty shootout defeat.
And it's the latter defeat that made the 10-year anniversary post to Instagram, rather awkward. Check it out:
Hundreds of Besiktas fans were sure to leave the exact same comment: 'Goodbye Liverpool.'
A rudimental threat? Well, not quite.
The message is a throwback to said Europa League victory where the Turkish commentator for the game announced those very words as the fixture concluded. He had learnt a little bit of English for the occasion and Besiktas supporters still love it.
It's fair to say if Liverpool do draw Besiktas, they'll be in for quite the atmosphere along the Bosphorus.
