Fenerbahce v Besiktas – Betting Preview & Prediction
Fenerbahce are on the verge of dropping out of the title race once again as they sit in third place, five points behind leaders Galatasaray and four points behind second placed Besiktas. A defeat today will see Fenerbahce drop seven points behind Besiktas with nine games to go.
The Yellow Canaries are create the most chances and take the most shots per-game but have only scored four times in their last four games. First choice striker Emmanuel Emenike only has four goals all season.
Bekir Irtegun, Alper Potuk, Mehmet Topuz, Gökhan Gönül and Serdar Kesimal are doubts for the Besiktas game.
Besiktas will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing 3-1 defeat at home to Club Brugge in the Europa League on Thursday. Slaven Bilic made a tactical error in switching to the 4-4-2 formation but is expected to return to the 4-3-3 formation which has served his side well this season.
Bilic will also be able to call upon Atiba Hutchinson and Jose Sosa, both who were sorely missed during the week. Milosevic will miss the game through injury.
Fenerbahce have only scored four times over the last four games and could struggle to find a way past Besiktas, especially if Atiba Hutchinson starts for the Black Eagles. However, the Yellow Canaries have the best home form in the league and have won three of their last four games against Besiktas at the Şükrü Saraçoğlu Stadium.
Fenerbahce are in need of a win and will look to push forward in numbers while Besiktas have the tools at hand to counter attack their opponents today. Predicting a high scoring encounter.
Both Teams to Score.
