In their first season after promotion to the top tier, Genclerbirligi has done well to ensure their survival. They have played well against some of the most experienced teams in the country. They are coming into this match after the defeat against Sivasspor.
Besiktas will have the chance to go third in the table if Sivasspor messes up in their last game. Currently, they are just a point behind the latter. They also have the upper hand over these opponents in head to head matches.

Genclerbirligi vs Besiktas: Prediction
There is a big difference between both of these teams in terms of points. The hosts have a poor away record all season but in recent matches, a change can be seen. Apart from the surprise defeat to relegation side Kayserispor, they are unbeaten in four of their last five away games. This includes the draw with reigning champs Galatasaray too.
The hosts pulled off a stalemate against Fenerbahce last time they played here and have lost two of their ten previous home games in the league. But the head to head stats heavily favor the visitors. Considering all these things I think there is a chance Besiktas winning on Saturday.
The reverse fixture was won by Besiktas with a final score of 4-1 back in December. The majority of their last few heads to head games had goals at both ends of the field.
Despite having a good form, Besiktas has given away goals in most of their away matches this season. The hosts have enough firepower to break through stronger defenses like Sivasspor. So we can be sure of seeing both teams finding the target in this one.
