Fernando Santos’ men head into the game on a run of four consecutive victories against the home side and will look to keep the juggernaut rolling.
Kayserispor failed to find their feet last weekend as they were held to a somewhat disappointing goalless draw by Gaziantep.
Burak Yilmaz’s side have now gone 10 consecutive games without a win across all competitions, claiming two draws and losing eight, including a 2-1 loss against Genclerbirligi in the Turkish Cup on January 18.
This poor run of form has seen Kayserispor drop to 13th place in the Super Lig table, level on points with 12th-placed Hatayspor and just two points above the relegation zone.
Besiktas, on the other hand, booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the Turkish Cup last Thursday courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Antalyaspor.
This followed a 2-0 victory over Trabzonspor on February 4 which saw their three-game winless run in the Super Lig come to an end.
With 39 points from 24 matches, Besiktas are currently third in the league table, one point above fourth-placed Kasimpasa.

Kayserispor vs Besiktas Prediction
Besiktas have turned a corner in recent weeks and will fancy themselves against a floundering Kayserispor side who have failed to win their last 10 matches. While we expect the hosts to put up a fight, we are backing Santos’ men to come away with all three points.
Prediction: Kayserispor 1-3 Besiktas
