Beşiktaş v Kasımpaşa: Preview & Prediction
Besiktas take on Kasimpasa in what looks to be one of the fixtures of the round. The Eagles have serious problems in defence going into the game with both first choice centre backs – Sivok and Pedro Franco – being ruled out. Bilic may turn to the inexperienced man mountain Atinc Nukan if Ersan Gulum is unable to recover from his hamstring injury.
Bilic’s side recorded a critical 2-1 victory in the last round against Basaksehir and will be looking to make it back to back victories in order to keep in touch with Galatasaray and Fenerbahce.
Kasimpasa also go into the game with problems in defence. Both Ryan Donk and Baris Basdag will miss the game due to suspensions and it is unclear who Shota Arveladze will choose to play at centre back. Kasimpasa are yet to win a game away from home this season and have last two of their last four games.
Both Besiktas and Kasimpasa are missing key names in defence which means goals are likely to be scored. Predicting over 2.5 goals.
