Besiktas, Lyon draw in Peace Cup

Turkish champions Besiktas held Lyon to a 1-1 draw in the Peace Cup at Huelva's Nuevo Colombino stadium on Saturday.

Swedish midfielder Kim Kallstrom opened the scoring for Lyon, who started the match as favourites, with a well-struck shot from outside the penalty area. But Brazil's Marcio Nobre equalized for the Turkish side with just six minutes remaining with a header.

Kallstrom almost scored from a free kick in the 77th minute, but his effort struck the crossbar.

Twelve teams from around the globe, including Juventus, Sevilla and Aston Villa, are taking part in the fourth edition of the pre-season tournament which got underway on Friday.

There are four groups with three teams in each. The top team in each group goes through to the semi-finals which will be played on 31 July.

The final takes place two days later in Seville.
