Akhisarspor vs Besiktas
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 13 April 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Manisa 19 Mayis Stadyumu (Manisa).
The reigning champions kept ground on the likes of Galatasaray and Istanbul Basaksehir in some style, netting five in the drubbing of Goztepe last weekend. Five different players added their names to the scoresheet as Senol Gunes’ men remained in the title contest. They still sit just three points below Istanbul Basaksehir at the very top of the ladder and they will have a nice chance to move lock on points with the leaders with a result in Friday’s clash against Akhisarspor.
The hosts won’t come into the game in the highest of spirits after losing back-to-back league outings to Istanbul Basaksehir and Alanyaspor. As the matter of fact, they lost three and drew one of last four Super Lig affairs. A serious turnaround in form is required if Okan Burzuk and his men are to avoid being wrapped up into the relegation scrap in the remaining six games of the season. Buruk’s main problems pop up in his team’s back line which allowed as many as five goals in last two losses.
Since Akigo are now about to come face to face with one of league’s most talented attacking lines, there is honestly only one possible outcome of this Matchday opener. Talisca has been enjoying a phenomenal form throughout the entire season. He was the one who opened the scoring on Saturday against Goztepe and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick against the struggling Akhisar side here.
