English soccer club Tottenham Hotspur had barely started its match with Turkish team Beşiktaş when the floodlights went out on Thursday.

The teams were playing a group stage game in the Europa League, which is one of the highest international titles a soccer club can win in Europe.

With the lights out, fans stepped up to illuminate Istanbul's Atatürk Olimpiyat Stadium with their phones, creating a series of beautiful photos captured by Getty Images.

As Deadspin noted, the lights went out AGAIN in extra time when the Turkish team was ahead 1-0.

They would go on to win the game, potentially leaving Tottenham with a tougher opponent in the next round.

We'll see if power outages help them in future games.
