Akhisarspor vs Besiktas
Turkey – Super Lig.
Date: Friday, 18th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Spor Toto Akhisar Stadium (Akhisar).
The hosts are struggling to win matches, and this inability has placed them right above the relegation zone right now. They are just a point above the first team in the zone- Erzurum BB. They have given away 26 goals in 17 matches which is the basic reason for their downfall. Besiktas forwards will have multiple chances to improve their goals tally against such a below par defense.
From the last 5 games, they played only one game was won and 2 were lost. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those 5 matches and they kept a clean sheet in 3 of them as well. Currently, they are unbeaten at home in the recent 4 games of which 2 were wins. In three of those games, the final score had less than 2.5 goals in total.
After a poor start o the season Besiktas has come up in the table. After over half of the season is complete, they are 7th in the table with 7 wins in 17 games. Like most teams, they face a problem in defending their own goal but has been doing good scoring more than a goal per game.
The Black and Whites are on an active winless run that extended 4 matches. They are fresh from an away loss to Kasimpasa in their last league match. That match ended 4-1 which was a major hit to their morale. They will look to bounce back with 3 points against their opponents for Friday.
In the last 5 matches on the road, the Black Eagles won 2 and lost only one match which was against Kasimpasa. More than 2. 5goals were scored in 3 of those 5 matches away from home and both sides scored in 4 of those games as well.
The team with shows better composure in scoring goals will definitely win as both sides are lagging in defensive skills.
