Besiktas vs Akhisar Belediye: Besiktas have won the Turkish SuperLeague title for 2 consecutive years and they are clearly the better team in this league…
This year they are stronger in my opinion. However, they got off to a bad start in the league and dropped some points, which is very unusual of them on the past 2 years.
Naturally, and despite having dropped some points to Galatasaray especially, Besiktas is still doing well on the title fight, but it is extremely important for them not to drop any more points.
In the Champions League they are doing very well, leading a very balanced group with teams such as FC Porto, Monaco and RB Leipzig.
Although this match is right before the reception to FC Porto, I don’t believe that match will already be on the mind of the players even because, as I’ve said before, their situation in the league requires more attention.
Akhisar Belediye is a mid-table team, sitting in 9th place at the moment and having a very peaceful campaign.
They already managed some good results this season, with the highlights being their 1-0 victory at home over Fenerbahce or the fantastic 6-1 triumph at Trabzonspor.
On this team the Portuguese Miguel Lopes and Helder Barbosa are two of the most important players they have, along with the Brazilian striker Paulo Henrique who also had a short stay in Portugal, who is also one of the team’s reference already having scored 6 goals so far.
This team will travel to Besiktas’ ground to try and get some points, which would already be a positive result considering the quality difference between the both sides.
Besiktas vs Akhisar Belediye – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Besiktas knows they can’t fail in this match and I expect ag ood performance from them, just before an European match.
Besiktas know that they can’t lose ground to Galatasaray with whom they are competing in the Turkish league who are more focused on this domestic competition, which forces Besiktas to maintain some good consistency domestically if they want to be crowned champions once again.
Their team is pretty good, has a lot of quality and also a strong support on their home matches whenever they play. I expect a win for the hosts in this match.
