Beşiktaş take on Sporting Lisbon needing just a point to book a place in the Europa League Round of 32 but it will be no easy task at the Jose Alvalade.
The Black Eagles could in fact make it through to the next round with a loss should Lokomotiv Moscow drop points against Skenderbeu. However, a Lokomotiv and Sporting victory would see the Istanbul giants crashing out of the competition.
Beşiktaş have no new injury troubles other than Gökhan Töre who is a doubt but Sporting will be without Bruno Paulista, Carlos Mané, Gutiérrez, Jefferson and William Carvalho.
The Black Eagles go into the tie in first place and as leaders in the Turkish Super League.
