Besiktas aiming to reinvent their forwards

Besiktas always fight for titles in their domestic championship, at least that's the goal at the beginning of the season. Unfortunately for them, things are not working out so far. They only have six wins in 13 matches, and the only positive aspect is that they trail leaders Fenerbahce by seven points which is not something they can't overturn. However, they need more reliability in front of the opposition's goal. They do score almost two goals per game on average, but some of those goals came in big wins so that stat is a bit misleading. Manager Senol Gunes needs to figure out how to make sure that his players can get on the scoring sheet more often against bigger clubs, they recently lost to Galatasaray, while drawing against Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor.

Besiktas potential starting 11: Gunok, Bingol, Montero, Sanuc, Meras, Ucan, Josef, Fernandes, Tosun, Weghorst, N'Koudou.

Istanbulspor will have a hard time keeping their Super Lig status, as they are second from the bottom with only two wins on their record. They are in the relegation zone, but only five points away from the line that would keep them in the top division. However, they are misfiring in every aspect of the game, they are the second-lowest-scoring team in the league with only twelve goals in 13 matches. They lost six straight league matches, and things are getting serious for the coach Fatih Tekke. He took over the team a month ago but was surprisingly given a contract until 2026 which is certainly unusual given the fact that the team's future in the top division is uncertain. The Turkish league season will restart at the end of December, there is enough time to get the team to compete for their ultimate goal, staying in the Super Lig.

Istanbulspor potential starting 11: Jensen, Aksu, Yesil, Ologo Inainfe, Berber, Rroca, Erdogan, Kabasakal, Ethemi, Yilmaz, Topalli.
