Sergen Yalçın’s derby score is very good in Beşiktaş

Beşiktaş hosts Galatasaray in the first derby of 2021. The fight, which will be played at Vodafone Park tomorrow night, will start at 19.00 and will be directed by Cüneyt Çakır. While Bahattin Duran and Tarık Ongun will be Çakır’s assistants, the fourth referee will be Halis Özkahya.
Beşiktaş, which started with the Büyükşehir Belediye Erzurumspor match in the 13th week, gained 5 wins and 1 draw in the series, and rose to the leadership in the 16th week. Black and whites, by beating Galatasaray tomorrow night, aim to increase the point difference with the opponent they compete for the championship and to maintain the leadership.


Black and whites will face Galatasaray with the exception of Welinton, who saw his 4th yellow card last week and became suspended.
Coach Sergen Yalçın has almost determined the eleven who will face Galatasaray. Yalçın, who will entrust the castle to Ersin Destanoğlu, will task Rıdvan on the right of the defense and on the left of Roiser. It is a fact that Sergen Yalçın, who is expected to play Necip next to Vida on the Stoper, also considers the Montero option. The experienced coach will make the final decision on this issue at the last practice in the evening.

Yalçın, who will use Josef in the defensive direction of the midfield, will strengthen the midfield by supporting Atiba and Mensah and Josef in Galatasaray attacks. Sergen Yalçın, who will play Larin on the left and Ghezzal on the right, will be Aboubakar again.
