On-loan Chelsea defender to make 20th appearance in Istanbul derby against Besiktas – Confirmed Starting Line-ups

Kenneth Omeruo

Besiktas travel to downtown Istanbul to take on Kasimpasa in tonight’s derby knowing that a win would move them seven points clear of second placed Fenerbahce.

On-loan Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo has recovered from an injury and will make his 20th appearance for the Kasimpasa.

Besiktas meanwhile have swapped Turkish international goalkeeper Tolga Zengin for January signing Boyko and Necip Uysal remains at centre-back as the Black Eagles will be without both Delgado and Rhodolfo in defence.


The Istanbul giants will also be without star winger Gökhan Töre due to injury while Quaresma is out suspended.

Former Fulham youngster Kerim Frei will start on the wing instead alongside Olcay Şahan while Mario Gomez starts up front.
