Team News

Besiktas
Istanbulspor
  • Rachid Ghezzal is back in training, but with his injury history, it is doubtful Senol Gunes will want to rush him back.
  • Tayyip Sanuc had to be subbed off with an injury against Basaksehir last time out. He will be monitored and if deemed unfit, Roman Saiss will deputise.
  • Dele Alli has also been training with the rest of the squad but according to sources close to Gunes, the English player, who failed to meet expectations here, is no longer in the experienced manager's plans. He isn't expected to be included in the match-day squads from now on.
  • Adi Mehremic is expected to deputise for the suspended Okan Erdogan.
  • Both Valon Ethemi and Emeka Eze had to be subbed off with injuries against Sivasspor last time out. Their situation will be assessed and if deemed unfit, Valmir Veliu and Emir Gultekin will deputise respectively.

Prediction

  • Besiktas recorded an impressive 2-0 away win at Basaksehir last time out. As expected, it was the talented attacking players that placed their mark on the game. Aboubakar seems to have found his feet, Hadziahmetovic already looks like a great bargain, and Gunes has an enviable list of impact players such as Maxim, Rosier, and Hutchinson at his disposal. This is not going to be an easy game as Istanbulspor have finally found their form but at home Besiktas are still favourites.
  • Istanbulspor continued their impressive run of results with a 3-0 victory over Sivasspor last time out. This was a tired Sivasspor side but such a comprehensive win still means a lot to Tekke and Istanbulspor. If Ethemi and Eze end up not being available for selection, Tekke will have no choice but to park the bus here. But even that is unlikely to get them anything out of this.
