Besiktas vs Fenerbahce – Probable Lineups: Shinji Kagawa Set To Make First Start

Besiktas take on Fenerbahce at the Vodafone Park stadium in the Istanbul derby tonight.

The Black Eagles head into the clash having won their last three league games but they are currently 12 points behind leaders Basaksehir.

The Black-Whites will have to win tonight if they want to remain in the title race.

Fenerbahce meanwhile, are hoping to escape the relegation zone.

The Yellow Canaries are currently 16th and will finish the Round of 23 in the bottom three unless they get at least a point tonight.

Besiktas will be without Adem Ljajic who is suspended. Shinji Kagawa will almost certainly replace him and get his first start since joining from Borussia Dortmund on loan in the process.

The Black Eagles will also be without Oguzhan Ozyakup who is suspended.

Fenerbahce will be without Mehmet Ekici and long-term absentee Tolga Cigerci but otherwise, have no major injury concerns.
