What channel is Wolves vs Besiktas on? Kick-off time, TV & stream details, latest team news

Wolves will take on Turkish giants Besiktas in their penultimate game over in Spain before heading out to Portugal.

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ pre-season tour of Spain comes to an end this weekend with Besiktas being the first of two matches that are taking place.

Bruno Lage’s men will suit up against the Turkish giants on Saturday evening in front of the fans before having a lighter session behind closed doors against Villarreal B the following morning.

It will give the Wolves supporters that have made the trip a chance to see and say goodbye to Romain Saiss who departed the club for the Turkish side this summer.

Kick-off is scheduled for 19:00 local time which will be 18:00 for those in the UK.

Is Wolves vs Besiktas on TV?

Whilst the game won’t be broadcast on any traditional TV channels in the UK, WolvesTV will be streaming the full fixture live for a small fee. You can purchase a match pass here.

Team news

Yerson Mosquera and Daniel Podence were both sent off in the “training game” with Levante on Thursday morning but due to it being pre-season, will be allowed to feature as usual in this one.

Wolves somehow escaped from the game without any serious injuries but will be without Chiquinho who suffered an ACL injury just last week.

Saiss will likely suit up for Besiktas who are managed by former West Brom manager, Valerien Ismael.

Head-to-head record

You don’t have to go back too far to recall that Wolves have of course suited up against the Turkish giants before.

The two faced off in the 2019/20 Europa League with the black and gold running out winners in both legs.

Daniel Podence scored a hattrick in a 4-0 thrashing at Molineux whilst Willy Boly scored a 93rd minute winner in a 1-0 win over in Turkey.
