Besiktas vs Kasimpasa Prediction Today Match – 7 January 2023: Besiktas will be hoping to continue their push towards the Turkish Super Lig top three when they take on Kasimpasa at Vodafone Park on Saturday afternoon.
The home side are currently sixth in the league table, while the visitors find themselves in 13th place, having picked up 18 points from their opening 16 games.
Besiktas made a very strong start to the Turkish Super Lig season, winning four and drawing one of their opening five games, but things quickly began to unravel for former manager Valerien Ismael.
Besiktas vs Kasimpasa Preview
Out of the following six games, the Black Eagles won just one, with Ismael eventually being dismissed after a disappointing 2-1 away loss against Hatayspor, a team that are currently in the relegation zone.
Goals have not been an issue for the team that are now managed by Senol Gunes, but the defence has looked a little bit shaky at times, picking up just one clean sheet in their last six matches.
However, an advantage for Besiktas going into Saturday’s game is that they are playing in front of their own fans, only losing once at Vodafone Park all season, with that coming back in September, in a 1-0 defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir.

Last time out, the Black Eagles just about got the job done at home to Adana Demirspor, winning 1-0 courtesy of a first-half Arthur Masuaku goal, the left-back’s first for the club since arriving on loan from West Ham United.
Kasimpasa have had somewhat of a weird season, with one purple patch from the end of August to the beginning of October the only thing keeping them out of the relegation mix.
Besiktas vs Kasimpasa Prediction
While it has been an inconsistent start to the season for Besiktas, they should have enough about them to secure a routine victory against a side rooted in mid-table.
Kasimpasa did have success at Vodafone Park back in April last season, winning 3-0, but their away record has been nowhere near as good so far this term.
