Dropping points against Ankaragucu (1-1) ahead of the derby against Fenerbahce was not at all the response Rıza Çalımbay was looking for from his side following their 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Club Brugge in the Europa Conference League group stage campaign.
However, looking at the brighter side, the Black Eagles have maintained a three-match unbeaten run in the league with three wins and a solitary draw. The Vodafone Park is where the most points have been accumulated, as they are currently on a six-match unbeaten run (W5 D1) and will be hoping that it'll be enough to avoid a catastrophic outcome against table-toppers Fenerbahce.
With 36 points collected from 14 matches played, Besiktas sits third in the Turkish Super Lig standings level on points with fourth-placed Kayserispor and are eleven points behind table-toppers Fenerbahce in this impending encounter.
Probable Starting XI
Gunok; Meras, Amartey, Uysal, Bulut; Hadziahmetovic; Muleka, Fernandes, Ucan, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Aboubakar

With 37 points collected from 14 matches played, Fenerbahce sits first in the Turkish Super League standings, level on points with second-placed Galatasaray.
