Adana Demirspor have been moving at a steady pace this season, though their performance has yet to meet expectations.
The Blue Lightnings found themselves struggling once again on the road as they lost 2-1 against Kasimpasa, where disciplinary issues saw three of their players being sent off, including first-choice goalkeeper Ertaç Özbir.
However, despite that loss, they should still see confidence radiating in their camp, as this is their first loss in five matches after being on a four-match unbeaten run before recording two wins and a draw.
They currently occupy ninth place with 8 points in the standings and are two points behind their opponents in this impending encounter.
Probable Starting XI
Makhammadaliev; J. Svensson, A. Gravillon, S. Guler, Cokcalis; Tokoz, E. Akbaba; Y. Sari, Y. Belhanda, Y. Erdogan; M. Niang
The Black Eagles may not have managed to put on board their first three points in the Europa League when they played out a 1-1 draw against Club Brugge to salvage a point, but their dominant display in the preliminary rounds, where they won six consecutive matches, makes them likely to make it to the knockout stages.
Their most recent match in the league against Kayserispor saw them come from a goal down to record a 2-1 triumph at home, courtesy of goals from Vincent Aboubakar and ex-Liverpool star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The Black Eagles have suffered just one loss in five matches, along with three wins and a draw. They will be eager to pick up their second consecutive win, which will be their fourth in the league, as they take on an opposing side that they have won two consecutive matches against.
They currently occupy fourth place with 10 points and have maintained a one-point advantage over four teams in the standings. Their aspirations for a first-place finish are hindered by a five-point deficit.
Probable Starting XI
Gunok; O. Bulut, E. Bailly, O. Colley, A. Masuaku; A. Hadziahmetovic, S. Ucan; R. Ghezzal, A. Oxlade-Chamberlain, C. Tosun; V. Aboubakar

Expert Betting Tips
Adana Demirspor is expected to be a formidable opponent in this clash, which can be entirely true given that they have won two consecutive matches at home this season. However, their home form in this fixture paints a different picture; their last win dates back to the millennium era, winning 2-0 in 1988, and they are winless in eight matches, a run that will see them struggle in this one.
Besiktas have won three of their last six matches in this fixture, while three ended in stalemates, and it goes without saying that they are once again favorites to pick up another three-pointer, though it won't be a walk in the park.
The visitors are the better side on paper at the moment, and despite this clash having signs of an evenly contested affair, we anticipate Senol Gunes' troupes to eke out a narrow win by picking them up in the full-time market.
