Besiktas - form analysis: improved form after a change in management

The "Black Eagles" didn't play under Fernando Santos for long. They struggled to find a new coach amidst a crisis during winter and eventually appointed an experienced Portuguese coach on January 7th. However, in mid-April, they showed Santos the door after a series of 5 unbeaten matches. Rumors circulated about Ivic and other candidates, but they decided to continue under the interim guidance of Topraktepe until summer. He made his debut with a confident 2-0 win against Ankaragucu. In the cup against the same capital team, they played out a goalless draw - everything will be decided in the return match. They lost the derby against Fenerbahce in the last round 1-2 while being a player down.
