With just three games left of the Turkish Super Lig, today's Galatasaray vs Besiktas fixture sticks out as the last remaining hurdle between league leaders Besiktas and the first part of their possible third Turkish domestic double. Make sure you know how to watch a Galatasaray vs Besiktas live stream today from anywhere in the world.
The team news is in for the Istanbul Derby and Besitkas striker Vincent Aboubakar has not recovered in time to make the line-up. Fortunately, top scorer Cyle Larin starts and will be looking to add to his season tally of 19. Centre midfielder Oghuzan Ozyakup sits this one out too as does loanee forward from Everton Cenk Tosun.
The team news is a little better for Gala. While defender Christian Luyindama will be sorely missed, winger Henry Onyekuru will take the field having recovered from his hamstring injury. He joins the attack alongside Falcao, Ryan Babel.

All the same, a 23rd Turkish Super Lig title looks unlikely for Galatasaray this time around. The Lions sit in third place, six points off top spot, and although it's not mathematically impossible, they'd need need a few favours from the clubs facing both Besiktas and Fenerbahce in the closing stages of the campaign.
It's all on as far as Besiktas are concerned, though. The Black Eagles need two wins from their last three to guarantee their first title since 2017 and set them up nicely for their Turkish Cup Final on Tuesday 18th May with the chance of that historic double.
