Beşiktaş JK will be without forward Filip Hološko when their UEFA Europa League knockout campaign begins in February and have also lost midfielder Necip Uysal for Wednesday's concluding Group L match against SK Rapid Wien.
Slovakia striker Hološko, 26, broke a metatarsal in his right foot in Friday's 2-0 defeat at Eskişehirspor and after undergoing an operation has been ruled out for three months. With Beşiktaş certain to finish second in their group, Hološko – who scored in the 2-1 wins at Rapid and PFC CSKA Sofia – will miss their round of 32 tie on 17 and 24 February. The Istanbul team will discover their opposition on Friday.
Turkish international Necip should be back by then, but the 19-year-old will not face Rapid at home as he is sidelined for four weeks after tearing left knee ligaments against Eskişehirspor. Also absent on Wednesday will be Bobô (hip), Onur Bayramoğlu (knee), Ekrem Dağ (foot), Rüştü Reçber (knee) and Nihat Kahveci (groin). On the plus side, Mert Nobre, Ricardo Quaresma, Matteo Ferrari and Ersan Gülüm have recovered from injuries.
