The hosts, who are already relegated, occupy 19th place, while the Black Eagles enter Sunday's encounter in seventh position.
After 23 matches, Goztepe found themselves in 14th spot in the Super Lig table, but a dramatic drop off in form has resulted in relegation.
Goztepe have not won a competitive fixture since January as they currently endure a torrid spell of form after losing 12 of their previous 13 league games.
The only point in that 13-game period was picked up against Gaziantep a few weeks ago, but since that draw, Goztepe have lost 7-1 to Caykur Rizespor and 3-1 to Fatih Karagumruk.
Makana Baku managed to restore parity last weekend after Fabio Borini had opened the scoring for Fatih Karagumruk, but goals from Emre Mor and Burak Bekaroglu condemned Goztepe to their 22nd league defeat of the season.
As Sunday's hosts prepare to face Besiktas, they will be fully aware that a defence which has conceded more goals in the Super Lig this term than any other side will need to show signs of improvement if they are to take points off the Black Eagles.
The visitors will be keen to see the end of the season after experiencing an underwhelming campaign, with Besiktas currently sitting in seventh place.
After seeing Kayserispor and Sivasspor reach the Turkish Cup final in midweek, the Black Eagles will miss out on European competition with the two finalists currently occupying bottom-half positions in the league table, which prevents fifth place from becoming a European qualification spot.
Although a top-four finish is not possible due to their unfavourable head-to-head record with Istanbul Basaksehir, the Black Eagles will still be keen to move up the standings in their final two league matches.
Sunday's visitors now have the chance to clinch consecutive away wins following the 3-2 victory that they picked up against Kayserispor in their most recent away trip.
Baku has started the last two matches for Goztepe, and after scoring in both of those appearances, he is expected to keep his place in the side on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Lourency may have to settle for a place on the bench once again despite featuring in the second half against Fatih Karagumruk.
Goztepe SK possible starting lineup:
Ozcimen; Alici, Mihojevic, Arslanagic, Emir; Kayan, Cankaya; Baku, Tijanic, Akbunar; Di Santo
Besiktas possible starting lineup:
Destanoglu; Montero, Welinton, Saatci; Rosier, Ilkhan, Ghezzal, Souza, N'Koudou; Larin, Batshuayi
We say: Goztepe SK 1-3 Besiktas
With Goztepe continuing to ship goals at an alarming rate, we think they will be unable to trouble a Besiktas side that scored three goals in their most recent away game.
