Beşiktaş and Başakşehir will close out the 26th week in the Spor Toto Super League today. Beşiktaş will want to please their fans and return to winning ways after back to back losses against Brugge and Fenerbahçe before the international break.

With both of the other title contenders, Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe, winning their matches this week, Beşiktaş will need to pick up the 3 points in order to stay ahead of Fener by a point and behind Galatasaray by a point.

There’s still questions marks on who’s going to be play in the midfield with Veli being suspended and Atiba and Tolgay recently recovering from an injury. The center back duo is a question mark as well. Recent news says that Sivok will be returning to the starting lineup. Sivok’s last start was against Başakşehir away in a 2-1 win before getting injured and not featuring in the other matches after that.

Demba Ba, Gökhan Töre, Serdar Kurtuluş, Kerim Frei and Ismail Köybaşı have picked up 3 yellow cards in the league so far and in the event of them seeing another one today, they will be suspended for the away match against Kasımpaşa next week.

Başakşehir’s top goal scorer Semih Şentürk and midfielder Rajko Rotman will be out with an injury while their first choice right back, Uğur Uçar, won’t be playing cause of yellow card suspension.

Başakşehir is fighting for a place in Europe and will want to win this game and stay in 4th place. A tough game is awaiting for the Black Eagles.

Beşiktaş predicted XI:

Cenk; Serdar, Sivok, Ersan, Motta; Atiba, Oğuzhan, Sosa; Olcay, Gökhan, Ba
