Matchday 28

Beşiktaş will close matchday 28 in the Spor Toto Süper Lig and need all three points in the last straight line toward the title.

With Fenerbahçe going in to the weekend one point ahead of our Black Eagles but not having won once in the past four years away at Eskisehirspor, the chance is quite realistic that the leaders will drop points. Meaning the Black Eagles can not afford to drop points. As a matter of fact, in these last seven games Beşiktaş would do well to win all remaining matches, which will naturally prove difficult with an away game at Trabzonspor and Galatasaray among the remaining fixtures.

With a convincing 1-5 away win at Kasimpasa last week the Black Eagles will be high on confidence, they’ll also enjoy a nice boost with the return of Gökhan Töre who served a one match suspension due to yellow card accumilation last week.

Karabükspor are in the middle of a relegation battle and can not afford to lose points in this game, so they will without a doubt be playing all or nothing.

Beşiktaş predicted XI:

Günay Güvenç; Serdar, Tomas Sivok, Ersan Gülüm, Motta; Atiba Hutchinson, Tolgay Arslan, José Sosa; Olcay, Gökhan Töre (Mustafa Pektemek), Demba Ba
