An electrifying clash is on the prospects when Osmanlispor host Besiktas for the matchday 17 fixture of the Turkish Super Lig 2016/17 season on Monday.
Osmanlispor are currently sixth in the league standings and went into the winter break on the back of a 6 match unbeaten run. They had a good December taking a total of 10 points from a possible 12. Bursa’s 2-1 defeat to Trabzonspor on Friday evening means that they can move up to fifth if they get a win here.
The narrow 1-0 win of Galatasaray against Konyaspor on Saturday has pushed Besiktas down to third in the league table. But a win here could move them back to second, just a point behind the league leaders Istanbul Basaksehir. Besiktas are unbeaten at home in the league this season. They won in 6 of their 8 matches, with 2 draws coming against Galatasaray and Basaksehir. Away from home, they are without a win in the last two and managed just 1 win from their last 4.
