Beşiktaş striker Mustafa Pektemek set to return against Gençlerbirliği [divider]
Beşiktaş striker Mustafa Pektemek is set to make his return against Gençlerbirliği after recovering from a facial injury.
Pektemek broke his nose and fractured several bones in his face during a game against Trabzonspor in December.
The Turkish international had to be rushed to hospital following a collision with Belkalem in the Black Eagles 3-0 win over Trabzonspor.

Black Eagles goalkeeper Cenk Gönen and midfielder Atiba Hutchinson have also recovered and will be available for the game against Gençlerbirliği.
New signings Alexander Milosevic and Daniel Opare are eligible to play but Slaven Bilic will make a match day decision over their fitness.
Beşiktaş defender Tomas Sivok is also a doubt for the Gençlerbirliği game.
The Black Eagles are currently just one point behind league leaders Fenerbahçe with 35 points from 16 games this season.
Beşiktaş have the best away record in the league, the Black Eagles have secured 21 points on their travels this season. Technically the Istanbul giants have played every match away from home this season as the Inönü stadium is currently being rebuilt.
