In the Turkish Süper Lig the next derby will take place this weekend. On Saturday night, the match between Fenerbahce and Besiktas will take place in Istanbul. It is also the duel between the vice-champion and the reigning Turkish champion. In the table Besiktas is also in this season before Fenerbahce. But with a home win the canaries can shorten the residue to a point.
Fenerbahce is currently on the 3rd place with the current 24 points. In view of the weak start of the season one must emphasize this interim position positively. After Fenerbahce, Fenerbahce was on the 16th place. However, this low point was overcome, as a series could be laid down as of the fourth day. Meanwhile the canaries have been undefeated for nine matches and have also won their last five games. In addition, there were two home wins against Karabükspor (5-0) and Galatasaray Istanbul (2-0) in addition to three away games in Konya (1: 0), Akhisarspor (3-1) and Rizespor (5-1). Not only the defensive has been able to convince itself absolutely, but also in the offensive they could call convincing achievements. 16 goals they scored in the last five games. However, it is not as easy as last in Rize against Besiktas. The games between these teams have been very tight and exciting in recent years. In the past three games the team has always been able to win. They were two home wins for Fenerbahce (1: 0, 2: 0). During the week, there was a little damper for Dick Advocaat’s team as they lost their first group game against Genclerbirligi Ankara in the Turkish Cup 1: 2. However, this defeat comes at the right time, as the team has to get a 100% performance against Besiktas Istanbul.
The score is 28 points and is just two points behind the Istanbul Istanbul striker. For Besiktas the season is still outstanding, as they could still be unbeaten in all competitions. Even in the Champions League they stayed in all group games without defeat. A good start was also in the Turkish Cup when Darica GB was able to celebrate a 2-1 away win. In the league are also still undefeated. On 12 matchdays they recorded eight wins and four draws. Away there were four wins and two draws in six games with a goal ratio of 9: 4. On average, the best amount of points in the play of Besiktas is 0,83 Goals per Game. They are the third best defense in the league. In the current season there was still no game, in which they have collected more than two conceding. Already in the last week they had a derby. At home, Basaksehir were only a 1-1 draw. This gave the opportunity to take over the table management. Coach Senol Günes has to do without in this derby on Talisca, Aras Özbiliz, Veli Kavlak, Caner Erkin, Dusko Tosic and Rhodolfo.
