Ankaragucu are struggling this season and sit in 19th place on the Turkish Super Lig table. They are level on points (9) with the bottom two clubs.
Relegation beckons for Ankaragucu unless they can start getting some positive results, something they have managed recently. More will however be required.
After a run of three straight defeats from mid-November to the beginning of December, Ankaragucu have started showing signs of a team they can stay in the division. Since losing 1-0 at table topping Antalyaspor, Ankaragucu have beaten Konyaspor 4-3 and Hatayspor 2-0, both at home.
Their last match ended in a 1-1 draw at Genclerbirligi. While they didn’t manage to take victory, seven points from the last nine on offer is not a bad return.
After falling behind early in the second half to Genclerbirligi, Ankaragucu showed renewed spirit by bouncing back to level matters in the 74th minute through Saba Lobjanidze.

Ankaragucu are missing a few key players for this match. Centre-back Michal Pazdan is injured which means Erdi Dikmen is likely fill that hole in defence.

Besiktas’ last match saw them thrash a hapless BB Erzurumspor 4-0 at home. It was a dominant performance but their dominance only paid off in the second half.
