Ankaragucu vs Besiktas
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Thursday, 24 December 2020
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Eryaman Stadium.
The Black Eagles are one of the best teams in the competition, and are placed fourth in the table, despite still having a game to play.
They have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the league, and barring a loss to toppers Alanyaspor, they would have had a 100% winning record in the past five game weeks in the Super Lig.
The two teams above them in the table – Galatasaray, and Fenerbahce, have tough match-ups this game week, and thus it’s an opportunity for Sergen Yalcin’s men to climb into the podium with a victory.
After all, they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the competition this Thursday.
Not only are AG placed in the relegation zone at the moment, but they also have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the years.
By all means, we are in line to witness a dominating performance from Besiktas this Thursday.
Ankaragucu vs Besiktas: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Black Eagles had recorded 30 of the former 32 overall wins.
- They have scored a total of ten goals from the past four encounters.
- The last they lost against this rival was back in 2011.
- They have kept clean sheets in five of the preceding nine clashes at this stadium.
Ankaragucu vs Besiktas: Prediction
AG were winless in 12 of their previous 14 overall games, and in the process they had registered separate three-match and five-fixture losing streaks. At home, they have won just twice since July, and just thrice since March of 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts had won seven of their preceding nine games, and they had scored three or more goals in five of their past six match-ups. The only fixture where they failed to find the back of the net three or more times were against toppers, Alanyaspor.
Most importantly, they had also recorded 30 of the preceding 32 overall wins, and are unbeaten against them in the past nine-year period.
As things stand, expect the in-form Besiktas to post a convincing win over the struggling Ankaragucu.
