Matchday 25

Beşiktaş will be looking to go back on top with a win against Rizespor. The opponents are currently 13th place in the league table with 28 points.

The Black Eagles will be without Rhodolfo, Ricardo Quaresma and Gökhan Töre yet again. Quaresma picked up a last second injury before the match and Gökhan still hasn’t been able to recover from his injury. On the other hand, Leonard Kweuke and Dhurgham Ismaıl are out for Rizespor.

Rize are usually a tough opponent for Beşiktaş. In the last 7 matches between them in the league and cup, Beşiktaş was only able to win twice while Rize won one and 4 matches ended in a draw. The last match between in the first half of this season resulted in a 1-0 win for Beşiktaş thanks to a 2nd half goal from Ricardo Quaresma.

This is a must win match for Beşiktaş as we are approaching the final weeks in the race for the championship. Andreas Beck, Ismail Köybaşı, Olcay Şahan and Mario Gomez will also need to be careful as they’re a yellow card away from suspension.

Beşiktaş XI:

Tolga Zengin ; Andreas Beck – Alexis Delgado – Marcelo Guedes – Ismail Köybaşı; Atiba Hutchinson – Oğuzhan Özyakup – Jose Sosa; Kerim Frei – Olcay Şahan – Mario Gomez
