Despite starting off the season in a bad way, Beşiktaş and Avcı looked like they were about to make amends for it with the 2-0 win against league leaders Alanyaspor.
The Black Eagles will be looking to beat Ankaragücü today away from home and become even more motivated for the Galatasaray derby, yet the unavailable players won’t make the selection easy for Avcı.
Gönül, Ruiz, Özyakup, N’Koudou and Toköz will not be available to pick tonight as they are injured. Avcı will have to tinker again with the squad, fielding different players. The manager has told his players in the meeting yesterday: “We have to get the three points here before facing Galatasaray. A win is essential.” in the attempt to motive them.
