FİYAPI İnönü Stadyumu — İstanbul
Besiktas have appealed for their fans to be on their best behaviour as politics threaten to cast a shadow over their Europa League opener against Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Although Turkey has traditionally been more positive in its dealings with Israel than most Muslim countries, relations have been severely strained since a Turkish ship carrying aid to Gaza was sunk by Israeli forces last year, killing nine.
The Maccabi team arrived into Istanbul on Wednesday to be greeted by a heavy police presence.
Players have reportedly been told they will not be allowed to leave the team hotel other than to go to training and the match itself.
Maccabi coach Motti Ivanir was quoted in the Jerusalem Post as saying: "We are not interested in politics. We are here to play soccer. We have been here before and we are expecting everything to be the same.
