Trabzonspor vs Besiktas: Senol Gunes Returns Home Hoping To Beat Form Side

Trabzonspor host Besiktas in the Super Lig on Saturday at the Medical Park Stadium.

The Black Sea based side are currently 4th in the league, five points behind 3rd placed Besiktas.

Trabzonspor could technically finish the campaign in 3rd place but would have to beat the Black Eagles and hope they lose their final game as well.

Besiktas meanwhile are just four points behind Galatasaray and Basaksehir.

The Black-Whites still have a chance to finish the league as runners-up which would secure Champions League football next season.

They are still mathematically in the title race but it would take a miracle at this stage for Besiktas to be crowned champions.

Besiktas head coach Senol Gunes was a Trabzonspor legend as a player and a manager so he will probably get a warm welcome from the home faithful.

Burak Yilmaz will also be facing his former side.

The Turkey international spent four seasons at Trabzonspor and netted five times in seven games for the home side this term.

Since joining Besiktas in January he has 11 goals in 14 games.
