Matchday 9

With back to back defeats against Kayseri Erciyesspor and Fenerbahçe, Biliç’s men will be looking to get back into winning ways in the league against Başakşehir. Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray won their games yesterday and both increased their point tally to 19, 5 points ahead of Beşiktaş, with a match in hand. Beşiktaş will want to decrease the margin back to 2 points with a win.

Olcay and Gökhan Töre will be missing this match due to a red card suspension, while Veli Kavlak will be out thanks to a yellow card suspension. Mustafa Pektemek and Tolga Zengin will be out injured. On the other hand, it’s likely that Serdar Kurtuluş will be in the match squad as he has recovered from his injury.

Oğuzhan Özyakup and Demba Ba need to be careful this match as both of them can be suspended for the next match against Kasımpaşa if they see a yellow card.

Beşiktaş’ doesn’t have a good record against Başakşehir in their recent matches against them. In the last 9 official matches, Beşiktaş have only managed to beat Başakşehir once with a 2-0 scoreline, back in 2010. Başakşehir won 3 of them and the last 5 matches all ended up in a draw.

With 5 important players out for Beşiktaş today, their task isn’t easy at all, but they need to win this game in order to keep close with rivals Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray.

Beşiktaş predicted XI

1. Tolga Zengin

2. Serdar Kurtuluş
19. Pedro Franco
22. Ersan Gülüm
31. Ramon Motta

20. Necip Uysal
13. Atiba Hutchinson
15. Oguzhan Özyakup

5. Jose Sosa
21. Kerim Frei
9. Demba Ba
