Beşiktaş take on Sivasspor needing a win to move back into first place in the Turkish Super League table.
The Black Sea Storm are currently in second place one point behind Istanbul rivals Fenerbahçe but have a game in hand.
Beşiktaş will be without Gökhan Töre who was pulled out of the squad today following injury and will be replaced by Ricardo Quaresma.
Manchester United target Mario Gomez will start for the Istanbul giants and has been in great form netting nine times already this season earning himself a call up to the Germany national team after a long absence.
Turkish Super Lig broadcaster Lig Tv reported that that United – who have been monitoring the 30-year-old striker over the past month – want to bolster their attacking options in the upcoming transfer window.
