Galatasaray vs Besiktas live stream: how to watch the Turkish Süper Lig 2019-20 from anywhere

Sunday's Istanbul derby brings together two teams that are battling to stay in the Süper Lig title race - don't miss a kick of what looks set to be a key match in the title race by following our Galatasaray vs Besiktas live stream guide.

Galatasaray currently find themselves third in the league table, with just three points separating them from joint leaders Trabzonspor and Istanbul Başakşehir.

Galatasaray vs Besiktas - when and where

Sunday's derby takes place at the 52,223-capacity Turk Telekom Stadium. As with all Turkish Süper Lig matches this weekend and for the foreseeable future, the game will be taking place behind closed doors thanks to concerns over the spread of the Coronavirus.

The match is set to kick-off at 7pm TRT Turkish time. So that's 4pm GMT in the UK, 12pm ET or 9am PT in the US.

Besiktas find themselves nine points adrift of the league leaders, meaning a win is essential for keeping their faint hopes of a title alive.

The black and whites come into the game in good form having recorded back-to-back wins over Alanyaspor and Ankaragucu in their previous two league outings and look set to be welcoming back Serbia international midfielderAdem Ljajic to the starting eleven.
