Besiktas to Win
The last three meetings between Basaksehir and Besiktas were won by Besiktas, which is exactly what we expect to happen in their upcoming duel as well. After all, Besiktas is currently third in the league, while Basaksehir has two wins and six losses in the first eight games. That being said, one of those two wins was against Fenerbahce at home and Besiktas does have a long list of injuries at the moment, so the home team shouldn't be underestimated. Still, our prediction is for Besiktas to win this game.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
The last three head-to-head duels between Istanbul Basaksehir and Besiktas have gone over 2.5 total goals. In fact, they've all gone over 3.5 total goals. In addition to this, Besiktas averaged 3.00 goals per game so far in the league, while Basaksehir averaged 2.25 goals per game this season. With that in mind, our next prediction is for these clubs to combine for at least three goals in their upcoming duel.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Since we expect to see at least three goals in this match, we also expect both teams to score, which happened in four of the previous five h2h duels between these two teams. Furthermore, both teams have scored in 50% of all Besiktas matches this season in Super Lig, while the same is true for just 38% of all Basaksehir matches in the league.

Istanbul Basaksehir vs Besiktas preview: An exciting matchup
The favourite club of the Turkish president won their first-ever title in 2020, but things haven't been going their way since then. The team finished last season in 12th place and they didn't start the new season any better. After the first eight rounds, Basaksehir has two wins and six losses, which puts them barely above relegation zone. On the bright side, those two wins came in the last four games and one of the wins was against league leaders Fenerbahce. Cigerci, Kutucu, Sahiner, and Ozbayrakli are injured and out of contention for next game.
The reigning champions have started the new season in Super Lig well, with five wins, two draws, and one loss. This is enough to put Besiktas in third place at the moment, two points behind leaders Fenerbahce. While the team is in good form in the league, they lost both of their matches in the Champions League so far. Also, Besiktas is dealing with a lot of injuries at the moment, including some big names like Topal, Moreno, Ghezzal, and Pjanic.
