VIDEO: Besiktas’ Demba Ba nearly scores from kickoff vs. Arsenal

Demba Ba is no stranger to taking on Arsenal, and in the first half of his new team, Besiktas’, UEFA Champions League playoff he apparently knew what to do right from the kick.

Ba received the opening roll of the ball and blasted one straight on target. He forced an incredibly reactive save by goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who just got enough of it to tip the ball back away from net.
