Besiktas was not bad in Konya, playing against the best Konyaspor of the last decades, until the 90 minutes when they received a goal. Claiming a European ticket through the Super League will be a difficult task, and the only chance is the Turkish Cup. They are still without a coach, and a permanent coach is Onder Karaveli, who trains the youth team. Also, problems with injuries didn’t stop and out of action are Uysal (10/0), Tore (9/0), Hasić (8/2), N’Koudou (8/2), and Gunok (4/0 second goalkeeper), but Rosier (16/0), and Teixeira (10/2) are back. Altay is in a bad condition, losing the last 4 matches. They impressively started the season with 5 victories in the first 7 games, but since then they are in heavy downfall without a win in the previous 12 matches (0-3-9) in the Super League. The Cup doesn’t seem to be their priority and will use a lot of reserve players, keeping the key players for the important match against Kayserispor away from home. Due to injuries unavailable are Ozturk (14/0) and Celenk (10/0). All in all, Besiktas is the current winner of the Turkish Cup and they will enter the match with a maximum approach.
