The game at Istanbul's Fiyapi Inonu Stadium will kick-off at 8:00 p.m. Turkish local time.(1:00 PM. ET)
Besiktas finished second in their group at the UEFA Europa League.
BESIKTAS SACK VETERAN SKIPPER IBRAHIM UZULMEZ....
THE REASON...PUNCHING HIS TEAMMATE!
Besiktas have taken the stunning step of sacking captain Ibrahim Uzulmez ahead of their Europa League last-32 tie at home to Dynamo Kiev on Thursday.
The move came following an emergency meeting after club's board of meeting ,looked into the events which unfolded during half-time of Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Ankaragucu.
Ibrahim Uzulmez,punched Ibrahim Toraman after both had become embroiled in an argument, witnessed by coach Bernd Schuster.
This is not the first time happened ,they also exchanged blows at a pre-season training camp in Austria in 2008.
Besiktas Club said "statement read: "Upon learning of the unsportsmanlike conduct he displayed
in the dressing room during the half-time interval of this week's match against Ankaragucu,
our executive board held an emergency meeting and, in line with coaching staff recommendations, unanimously decided to terminate player Ibrahim Uzulmez's contract with immediate effect."
BIG PROBLEM,,,, INJURIES FOR BESIKTAS!
Goalkeeper Cenk Gonen with a broken finger and defender Ersan Gulum with a season-ending knee ligament injury.
As far as Dynamo, this will be their first since the Ukrainian League shut down for its winter break two months ago, and the first for new head coach Yuri Semin.
The winners of this clash in two matches ,will go on to face either Manchester City or Aris Thessaloniki in the last 16.
So, this is very important match for Besiktas tonight at home...
They must win with a clear and big score...
