Date- Friday, March 6
Kick-Off- 10:30 PM (IST)
Venue- Vodafone Arena
Dorukhan Tokoz is a long term absentee due to injury. With Gokhan Gonul being out injured, Jermain Lens should fit in as the right-back for the hosts. Having said that, Besiktas should start a similar eleven which squared off in the 2-1 win over Alanyaspor. Burak Yilmaz is expected to lead the attack with Kevin Nkoudou, Kevin Prince Boateng and Tyler Boyd likely to play in behind. Mohamed Elneny and Atiba Hutchinson should accommodate central midfield. Erkin, Vida, Ruiz and Lens could be the back four with Karius in at goal.
Oscar Scarione misses out due to injury, while Cebrail Karayel is expected to come in place of the injured Tiago Pinto at left-back. Milos Stanojevic undergoes suspension which should make way for Ricardo Faty to feature in central midfield alongside Daniel Lukasik.
