ℹ️ Team News: İstanbul Başakşehir
The İstanbul Başakşehir boss Emre Belözoğlu has zero fitness worries at all coming into this match owing to a fully injury-free squad available for selection.
It looks as if Belediye will possibly kick off with a 4-1-4-1 system, handing starts to Volkan Babacan, Ömer Ali Sahiner, Léo Duarte, Ahmed Touba, Lucas Lima, Lucas Biglia, Serdar Gurler, Berkay Özcan, Deniz Türüc, Eden Karzev and Stefano Okaka.
ℹ️ Team News: Beşiktaş
From a largely full-strength group of players, there is just a single fitness issue for the Beşiktaş manager Şenol Güneş to be concerned about. Rachid Ghezzal (Unknown Injury) won’t be playing here. Welinton cannot play in this game through suspension.
We believe Kara Kartallar seem likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 lineup with a starting lineup of Mert Günok, Onur Bulut, Omar Colley, Tayyib Talha Sanuc, Arthur Masuaku, Amir Hadziahmetovic, Salih Ucan, Vincent Aboubakar, Gedson Fernandes, Nathan Redmond and Cenk Tosun.
In our opinion, Beşiktaş and İstanbul Başakşehir may well both score, with little between these two teams.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes, with a good chance of a draw. We’re therefore predicting a very close game with a score draw when the full-time whistle blows.
