Besiktas were able to establish themselves in the league table, so a win or a loss in this match is not bad for them. They are a team at the third of the league table with 77 points, just with the same points of the team at the second. Moreover, it is fortunate for Besiktas were able to have a big lead, as they are with 11-point lead with the team at the fourth. They are eager to finish at the second, as they will have an automatic qualification in the Champions league. However, it will not be easy, as they need to win here by five goals, as the team at the second won against them by three goals. Nonetheless, they are still secured of a spot in the European stage for the next season, considering their standings.

Fortunately, they will be boost by the return of Omar Colley, but they lost Arthur Masuaku due to a yellow card. Tayyib Talha Sanuc, and Onur Bulut are still recovering from their injuries, which is why they are out here. Moreover, Romain Saiss, Nathan Redmons, Alexandru Maxim, and Rachid Ghezzal are expected to return here, following their absence last game.

Konyaspor on the other hand is at the eighth of the league table with 50 points, and are aiming for the seventh spot with a win here. Their current run this season is a little disappointing, considering the fact that they sneaked in the third last season. Konyaspor failed to turn their draws into wins, thus, their current place in the league table. The best finish they could have this season is a seventh spot finish with a win in this match. Additionally, their current form is like ups and downs, considering their current results. From their last three matches, they won once, lost to once, and draw once as well. Moreover, from their last six matches away from home in the league, they won four times, and lost and draw one matches each. From those matches, they scored 13 goals, and conceded four times, which is why their form is unpredictable.

Just like their opponent, Konyaspor also have a suspended member in this match, with Francisco Calvo. Moreover, they will also be without Andreas Bouchalakis, Bruno Paz, Uche Ikpeazu, Muhammet Demir, and Endri Cekici are all sidelined.

Prediction:

Besiktas JK (2.5)
Odds: -0.86
