Besiktas are edging closer to securing the Turkish Cup, with their chances significantly bolstered following news of Galatasaray and Fenerbahce's elimination from the competition. Their most recent match in this tournament saw them secure a comfortable 2-0 win over Konyaspor in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.

Prior to that, they capitalized on Istanbulspor's league woes as they clinched a 2-0 victory away from home. This marked their second consecutive 2-0 win in the league and third across all competitions. The Black Eagles are currently unbeaten in their last four matches across all competitions, outscoring their opponents 6-0. It's safe to say they undoubtedly enter this match brimming with confidence, seeking to build up on that momentum and derail Okan Buruk's team's hopes of clinching the league title this season.

With 46 points accumulated in 27 matches played, Besiktas sits comfortably in fourth place, seven points ahead of fifth-placed Kasimpasa and level on points with third-placed Trabzonspor.

The Turkish powerhouses were left reeling after a Thursday night shocker in the Turkish Cup quarterfinal against inferior Fatih Karagumruk, losing 2-0 in their own backyard to be eliminated from the tournament. However, there are silver linings in that setback, as this means they get to focus all their attention on retaining their league title. 

Prior to that, Muhammed Kerem Aktürkoğlu's brace against Antalyaspor saw them secure a 2-1 triumph at home, a much-needed result to bolster their confidence after coming off a morale-crushing 4-1 away defeat to Sparta Prague in the second leg of the Europa League playoffs, which resulted in immediate elimination. Gala are currently on an eight-match winning streak in the league and will be seeking a ninth win against a side they got the better of by winning 2-1 on the road in the previous season. 

With 72 points accumulated in 27 matches played, Galatasaray currently leads the Turkish Super Lig standings and has maintained a two-point advantage over second-placed bitter rivals Fenerbahce. 

Formation: 4-2-3-1

  • Besiktas have won six consecutive home matches against Galatasaray.
  • Galatasaray are currently on a seven-match winless run when playing away in this fixture.
  • Besiktas averages 1.54 goals per game when playing at home, and Galatasaray averages 1.77 goals per game when playing away.

Head-To-Head 

In the last 65 meetings, Besiktas have won 21 times, Galatasaray have won 28 times, and there have been 16 draws, with the goal difference being 88-74 in favor of Galatasaray. 

Galatasaray will seek to make amends for their Turkish Cup elimination during the weekday match, facing a team they have previously dominated in the past few years. However, Gala have displayed a lackluster performance when playing away in this fixture, losing six consecutive matches while their unbeaten run stretches to seven matches. Despite that, Galatasaray remains the better side on paper this season.

Considering that this will be a tough contest between two powerhouses, we are inclined to believe the defending champions, Galatasaray, have it in them to snatch all three points in this impending encounter and solidify their position at the top. Therefore, we anticipate supporting them in the full-time market to walk away with all three points in a hard-fought victory.
