Besiktas continue their preparations for next month’s Super Lig curtain-raiser with a showdown in Austria against Czech champions Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday at 3pm (UK time).
Now headed up by former West Brom and Barnsley boss Valerien Ismael, who became the Black Eagles‘ third head coach of 2021/22 after succeeding Onder Karaveli in March, the Istanbul outfit enter their 120th season looking to improve upon their dismal sixth-placed finish last term.
A stern examination awaits later this week against the Czech champions, who will also be looking to get some much-needed prep work in ahead of their own Champions League qualifying match later this month.

Are Besiktas’ three Premier League arrivals set to feature?
It has been a busy window for Ismael, who has wasted little time in freshening up his squad ahead of the new campaign.
No fewer than six new players have arrived at the Vodafone Park Arena this summer, three of whom have relocated from England, a part of the world ex-Baggie Ismael is very familiar with.
Romain Saiss and Cenk Tosun have joined from Wolves and Everton respectively following the expiration of their contracts in England, while Wout Weghorst arrives from recently-relegated Burnley on loan. That trio are joined by former Spurs loanee Gedson Fernandes, Valentin Rosier from Sporting and 22-year-old DR Congo international Jackson Muleka.
Scoreline prediction: Besiktas 2-1 Viktoria Plzen
