Kasimpasa vs Besiktas
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 17th December 2016
Kick-off at 16:00 UK
Venue: Recep Tayyip Erdogan Stadium (Kasimpasa).
Kasimpasa finally managed to get back to winning ways after a 4 match win-less run with a 1-0 narrow win over Rizespor. They struggled all the way through the season and this is only their fourth win from 14 matches this season. They are agonizingly close to the relegation zone at a 5 point gap. However, they still manage to hold off moderate teams in the league at home. But tend to suffer heavy defeats from quality sides of Besiktas quality.
Besiktas are on a race with Basaksehir for the top spot in the league table. The 2-1 win against Bursaspor last weekend pulled them level on points, but are second due to an inferior goal difference. A win is must for them from this fixture, as Galatasaray is tailing them at a 3 point gap. Besiktas are unbeaten in the league this season, picking up 9 wins and 5 draws from their 14 matches so far.

Kasimpasa vs Besiktas: Prediction
Surprises are hardly expected at Recep Tayyip Erdogan Stadium on Saturday evening as Besiktas are expected to have their tails up in search for an all-important win. Kasimpasa have plenty of problems coming into this game and there are a few holes to fix after conceding 6 goals against Rizespor in the cup match on Tuesday. The visitors are firm favourites to win this one and could pile further misery on a relegation threatened Kasimpasa.
