Notes
  • Note 1: Beşiktaş originally requested that their two away games in Tirana and Bucharest be played one day apart. But as the dates get closer, they noticed it was almost impossible for the team to play the two games at those dates. They decided to send the substitute players to Tirana together with some youth team players. Their travel took longer than expected and the game was moved from 16 October to 17 October. Team A played in Bucharest and Team B played in Tiranë the same day.
