Besiktas have been flying in the league in recent weeks having won nine of their last ten games. Slaven Bilic’s side moved into top spot last weekend following their win over Rizespor however, the Croatian manager has cause for concern with his sides dip in performance in recent weeks.
Beşiktaş were eliminated from the Turkish Cup by Rizespor on Wednesday. Ersan Adem Gülüm will miss the game due to suspension.
Bursaspor are currently one of the leagues most in-form sides and have been playing some of the best football in the country. Senol Gunes has found the right balance in his team which came from behind last week to win all three points.
The in-from winger Volkan Şen will miss the game due to a suspension.
Besiktas have won the last three head to heads with Bursaspor and have no room for error with Fenerbahce breathing down their necks. Bursaspor have the league’s joint top scorer, and with Demba Ba on the field too goals should be guaranteed.
Over 2.5 goals
