Team news is that Dendoncker and Traore drop to the bench, with Neves restored to midfield and Gibbs-White seemingly linking upfront with Jimenez and Neto.

Line-up: Patricio, Boly, Coady, Saiss, Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny, Gibbs-White, Jimenez, Neto

Subs: Ruddy, Bennett, Vallejo, Vinagre, Dendoncker, Traore, Cutrone

I think probably so too Angry, but also that we shouldn't underestimate the Turks. They have Liverpool's Karius in goal tonight.

Given both teams poor recent form and the hostile home crowd looking for improvement I am anticipating a home win. Hopefully not and if we turn up from the first whistle we may squeeze something out of this.

Isnt Karius the ex Liverpool keeper that cost them the CL final a bit back? The Turkish league is generally poor but Besiktas have an excellent home record in it- that said the only thing they are proficient at is harassing western women and flogging flea ridden mats to some poor soul wandering around the markets so I expect a result. I would have preferred to see Traore start and despite decent performances he continually gets left out of starting lineups for some reason... if he is being " rested" why aren't others.

Adama's improvement recently has been impressive, although all the commentators seem to continue with the 'lack of end product' line which is no longer true. Also I despair when MGW gets the ball because HIS improvement has been much slower (yes, I know his role in the Watford OG).

Traore still needs to improve on his "end product" but he has explosive pace and can beat defenders- MGW offers nothing other than enthusiasm which isn't much use at the level we play at these days. He probably had one of his better games at Watford but is still championship standard in virtually every thing he does. A broken clock is right twice a day and the odd decent game from MGW doesn't mean is can hack it at either premier/European level

Good news. It is live on TV here. Bad news; only on one of the Spanish language channels ( really must learn the lingo now I live in Texas.

And what is that kit they are wearing? They look like they are auditioning for a Tarzan movie.

B'tas also have Arsenal player Elneny and Croatian W-Cup finalist Vida in their side

so much for the hostile environment - grounds half empty but suppose besiktas are used to playing in the champions league so this is small beer

MGW just had a great opportunity to feed Raul but blew it. He has only been on the ball twice and hasn't produced a pass yet. however don't want to judge him at this stage of the game. Our midfield are gelling well and dealing with most of their threat so far

Ball gets stuck under Raul's feet on the edge of the box before he can get a shot away

Free kick to B'tas from edge of our area comes to nothing. It is a hostile atmosphere but not only to us - they don't like it when their team are passing backwards!

Neto has had some nice touches but the defense has the better of him Dioga would have done well.
