Venue: Ankara 19 Mayis Stadyumu (Ankara).
The hosts have shown they can play at this level with some great performances in the first half of the Super Lig after getting promoted. Besiktas will definitely feel the pressure after 2 consecutive losses in the competition.

The club from Ankara won 5 of their last 6 matches in front of their home crowd. The only match they lost was against 5th place Antalyaspor and the score was 1-0. Under 2.5 goals came in 4 of the last 6 home games also.
With 6 wins and 5 defeats, they are currently 6th in the points table and has scored a decent 15 goals. Manager Ismail Kartal will have to help his team recover from the loss in the last game against Konyaspor. A home game is definitely what he needs at the moment.
The former champs are 7th in the table with 5 wins and 4 defeats. Being just a point behind their opposition for Saturday, this match will be interesting indeed. The Black Eagles have scored 20 goals till now while conceding 16 in return.
Their recent show is not suitable for a club with their stature. In the last 8 games across all competitions, they lost 5 and have only 1 win. Over 2.5 goals came in 4 of the last 7 games in all competitions as well. Away record will not give their fans any hope of a win on Saturday.
