This will be a duel between teams that have had a great start to the new season and have not experienced defeat so far. The home players are fresher and more rested, so it remains to be seen if they will use that advantage.

In the first five rounds, the Besiktas players achieved four wins and one loss and are currently the leaders of the Turkish championship. They took advantage of the easy schedule at the start of the season and beat Kayserispor, Karagumruk, Sivasspor, and Ankaragucu while drawing away against Alanyaspor.
Valerien Ismael’s men have been quite effective so far this season. They scored 14 goals, which makes them the most efficient team in the entire league. In their last four games, a total of 20 goals were scored, which is five per game.
Wout Weghorst and Jackson Muleka are the most dominant players in the attacking line of Besiktas. The Dutchman scored two goals and registered four assists, while the Congolese winger is the team’s top scorer with four goals.
Coach Ismael will not be able to count on the injured Atiba Hutchinson and Dele Alli in this match, and it is expected that the last reinforcement, Nathan Redmond, who arrived from Southampton, will be among the reserves.
Basaksehir played one game less than Besiktas in the domestic championship and registered three triumphs and one draw. They were better than Kasimpasa, Kayserispor and Alanyaspor and drew with Konyaspor.
Unlike Besiktas, which did not participate in any European competition this summer, Basaksehir’s players participated in the UEFA Conference League qualifiers, which they successfully passed. They entered the group stage of this competition with a winning streak after achieving a convincing 4-0 road win against Hearts in Scotland.
This team plays quite well in the defensive phase. They still haven’t conceded a goal in the Turkish championship, their goal difference is 8-0, and they registered a new clean sheet against the Scots last Thursday.
A potential problem for this team ahead of the match against Besiktas is fatigue. They play games every three days, and already on Thursday, they will face Fiorentina in the second round of the UEFA League Conference. Coach Emre Belozoglu will have to evenly distribute minutes to all players, in order to avoid injuries.
These two teams played two games against each other last season. There was no winner at Vodafone Park, while Basaksehir won 3-2 as the host.
Besiktas (4-2-3-1): Destanoglu; Masuaku, Uysal, Saiss, Rosler; Ucan, Fernandes; Nkoudou, Ghezzal, Muleka; Weghorst
Basaksehir (4-1-4-1): Babacan; Lima, Duarte, Ndayishimiye, Calcara; Biglia; Chouiar, Tekdemir, Ozcan, Traore; Okaka
This will be a match between a team whose form is really on the rise. We favor the home team because they enter this game fresher and more rested. In addition, we believe that they have better individuals, who can determine the winner in one move.
Prediction: Besiktas To Win
