7 Besiktas players on verge of suspension [divider]
Beşiktaş have a total of seven players on the verge of picking up an automatic suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards ahead of the Eskişehirspor game.
Demba Ba, Oğuzhan Özyakup, Serdar Kurtuluş, Necip Uysal, Gökhan Töre, Veli Kavlak and Ramon Motta will be suspended for the following league game if they pick up a yellow card against EsEs.
Motta and Ersan Gülüm have already been ruled out of the Europa League Round of 32 return-leg against Liverpool on Thursday 26 February.
Beşiktaş are currently 1st in the Süper Lig but will need to beat EsEs to guarantee the top spot going into the Round of 22.
Only two points separate 3rd place Galatasaray and Beşiktaş. Istanbul rivals Fenerbahçe are 2nd on 46 points.
Beşiktaş have lost 12 out of the 29 games played against EsEs away from home.
The Istanbul giants face Liverpool in the Europa League Round of 32 return leg days after the EsEs clash.
