Besiktas is in 2nd place on the Turkish league, behind Galatasaray, by just a 3-point margin…..
And so, they can catch Galatasaray tomorrow, on the top of the league table. During the week,
the Turkish side travelled to Portugal and won 1-3 against FC Porto, on a Champions League match, and they showed the team’s huge experience,
with players like Quaresma, Tosun, Pepe, Adriano and Babel having played in the Champions League for several seasons.
The team played intelligent football, with Talisca having a major role in the organization of their offensive process.
The team’s only loss this season was against their opponent here, on the Turkish Supercup, where they lost 1-2, conceding in the last minute of the match.
Konyaspor is in 15th place, winning only 1 match of the 4 they already played, and losing the remaining ones.
They started the season well, with the victory in the Supercup but after that, their results have been a disgrace.
With their excellent campaign last season, the team was able to make their debut on the European competitions, on Thursday, where they lost 1-0 to Marseille and where it was clear they lacked ideas on their offensive process.
They were playing just to get the draw, creating only 1 scoring chance, which is very poor considering the standard of these competitions.
Besiktas vs Konyaspor – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With that said, Konyaspor having 4 losses in 5 matches, and Besiktas being unbeaten on their last 6 matches, the favouritism of the Turkish Champions is evident,
even more after they have lost the Supercup against this team. Tomorrow, I believe we will see Besiktas going in strong since the 1st minute, wanting to get the advantage early,
and I don’t think fatigue will be an important factor here, since both teams played during the week and Besiktas’ bench is much better than Konyaspor’s.
The only absence on the Starting XI is Negredo. Therefore, I’m going with:
|Besiktas to win||
