Defending Turkish Super Lig champions Besiktas continue their quest to retain their crown when they travel to Hatayspor on Saturday at 2pm (UK time).
Besiktas are currently third in the league four points behind early leaders Trabzonspor having won six, drawn two and lost two of their opening eight matches – falling from top spot after a poor recent run. However, their hosts are sitting above them in the table on goal difference having also gained 20 points from their opening eight matches, boasting the best defence in the Turkish Super Lig and the second-best attack.

Player to watch: Saba Lobzhanidze (Hatayspor)
Only Besiktas and Trabzonspor (both 20) have scored more goals in the Turkish Super Lig this season than Hatayspor’s 19, and Omer Erdogan’s side have Saba Lobzhanidze to thank for a large portion of those goals.
The 26-year-old joined Hatayspor from Ankaragucu in the summer, having spent 18 months at the club following his initial move to Turkey in January 2020, and has settled at his new team very quickly.
In nine league appearances so far this season, totalling 628 minutes, Lobzhanidze has been directly involved in eight league goals – with only Anastasios Bakasetas (10) contributing to more in the Turkish top flight so far. Lobzhanidze has scored three goals and set up a further five so far from the right wing, providing excellent support for Hatayspor’s top scorers Mame Biram Diouf and Ayoub El Kaabi (both scoring five goals).
Interestingly, however, Lobzhanidze has recorded five assists despite creating just eight chances in the league this season with an xA of 2.06. That means just three of his chances created in the league this season haven’t ended in a goal, showing just how prolific the club are in attack.
