Besiktas prepare for İstanbul Başakşehir clash


Besiktas have turned their attentions towards the Turkish Super Lig clash against İstanbul Başakşehir.

The Black Eagles are coming off the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of their rivals Fenerbahce. Slaven Bilic and his side have been heavily criticised for their performance in the Istanbul derby.

The Croatian manager is yet to win an Istanbul in seven attempts since arriving at Besiktas.

Besiktas were also eliminated from the Europa League last week following a 3-1 defeat at home against Club Brugge.

Tolga Zengin who has been ruled out until the end of the season will miss the Başakşehir clash. Daniel Opare is also expected to miss the game.
