Fellow left-back Ismail Koybaşı has also been ruled out with injury. The Turkish international will be out for at least a month.

Motta has made a total of 26 appearances in all competitions for Beşiktaş this season.

The Brazilian fullback joined the Black Eagles on loan from Corinthians last season and then completed a permanent transfer in the summer.

Slaven Bilic may be forced to play central midfielder Atiba Hutchinson at left-back as a result.
