Besiktas face Fenerbahce in their upcoming Turkish Super Lig fixture on Sunday

Besiktas entertain local rivals Fenerbahce at the Vodafone Arena in Turkish Super Lig action on Sunday.

The league title was decided last week as Trabzonspor played out a 1-1 draw against Antalyaspor to lift the title with three games to spare.

Besiktas are six points off the Europa Conference League qualifiers, so will need to win their remaining three games to have any hopes of European football next season.

They took a step in that direction as they defeated Kayserispor 3-2 last time around. Georges-Kévin Nkoudou bagged a quick-fire brace to secure a win for the club.

Fenerbahce are comfortably placed in the second spot but need to avoid dropping points in the three remaining games. They are on an eight-game winning streak in league fixtures at the moment and defeated Gaziantep 3-2 in their previous outing.
