The Black Eagles do of course have two games in hand and could actually go top if they win both matches.
The Istanbul giants will first have to beat Eskisehirspor who to put it bluntly are pretty poor this season – and that is being pretty kind.
Besiktas will be without the injured Gokhan Tore but have no other key players out.
EsEs are last in the league and have the worst away record in the league having picked up just four points on their travels all season.
The Black Eagles meanwhile have now won their last five league games at home and will be clear favourites to extend their wining run to six.
Prediction: Besiktas Win -1 Asian Handicap
