Ankaragucu resumed their league duties with a 1-0 win over Gaziantep on the road courtesy of Alper Uludağ's first half stoppage time goal, which was his first for the club in five matches played since his departure from Giresunpor. Before this, they saw off the threat of Gençlerbirliği in the TSYD Cup, picking up a comfortable 2-0 triumph at home.
The Zeytinburnu-based outfit has found maintaining a consistent form in the league a struggle, winning only three of their eight matches along with three losses and two draws. Another concerning issue has been their inability to hold on to a lead, with three instances of victory slipping through their fingers.
With 16 points collected from 13 matches played, Ankaragucu occupy 11th place in the Turkish Super League standings, four points clear of the relegation zone and three behind seventh-placed Antalyaspor.
Probable Starting XI

In the latest match of the Europa League group stage campaign, Besiktas, one of the three giants in Turkish football, were outclassed by Club Brugge, bowing down to a heavy 5-0 defeat in front of their fans, leaving them without a win in Group D, let alone qualifying for the knockout stages.
Before that, they snatched three points off Samsunspor in a 2-1 victory away from home in the league, thanks to Omar Colley's late winner. With this win the Black Eagles have now won two consecutive matches in the league and will be eyeing a third consecutive win for the first time this season.
With 25 points collected from 13 matches played, Besiktas sits third in the Turkish Super Lig standings, two points ahead of fourth-placed Adana Demirspor and fifth-placed Trabzonspor. Their bid for a first-place finish is hindered by a significant nine-point deficit.

Expert Betting Tips
Besiktas have a solid away record against the home side; however, their injury crisis could see them struggling in this one despite having got back to winning ways with a hard-fought win over Samsunspor last week, and surely they'll be content with a point.
Given that Ankaragucu have seen the total exceed 2.5 goals in just two of their six home matches this season, we anticipate the total to go under in this one, while a draw can't be ruled out.
