Galatasaray v Besiktas live stream & tips - Black Eagles to mete out more misery on Lions

  • Besiktas 3 wins away from title

Besiktas can edge closer to Super Lig glory with victory over bitter rivals Galatasaray at the Türk Telekom Arena on Sunday evening.

The Black Eagles come into round 32 of the season in pole position in the league on 73 points, three ahead of title rivals Fenerbahce. And with just three games to go in the campaign Besiktas know that their fate is in their own hands as they pursue their 14th league title success.

Besiktas have lost just one of their last nine Super Lig outings ahead of this Istanbul derby and with star striker Mario Gomez in blistering form, will be confident of continuing in that vein of form. The Germany international has bagged 26 goals so far this season, including 24 in the league, which is a new top flight record.

Gomez has scored in each of the visitors' last four outings, in which Besiktas have scored 12 times. The Black Eagles downed Kayserispor 4-0 at the Vodafone Arena last weekend and they boast five more than Fener in the goal difference column as a consequence.

And with Besiktas’ only injury concern going into Sunday's game being centre-back Rhodolfo, who is expected to miss out, the Black Eagles look set to heap more misery on Galatasray, who have endured a miserable campaign.

Just one season after securing a record 20th league title, Gala find themselves sitting a massive 26 points behind leaders Besiktas down in sixth in the table.

They are also five points off the top four pace and the European places, although a two season ban from European club competitions meted out by UEFA following a breach of financial fair play regulations has already ruled out a potential continental campaign next term.

The Lions can at least take some comfort from the fact that they have a Turkish Cup final date with Fenerbahce to look forward to later this month but we're backing Besiktas to deal their confidence another blow on Sunday.
