Antalyaspor vs Besiktas
Turkey Super Lig
Date: Wednesday, 3 February 2021
Kick-Off at 16.00 UK
Venue: Antalya Stadyumu, Antalya.
Besiktas’ title ambitions have suffered a significant hit on Sunday when they fell 1-2 to Trabzonspor at home. Kara Kartallar thus snapped a four-win streak across competitions. They dropped from the top of the standings after Fenerbahce’s home win over Caykur Rizespor.
The team led by Sergen Yalcin will be highly motivated to instantly return to winning ways on Wednesday, but they will have a very tough task to clinch the spoils against an in-form Antalyaspor side in the mid-week’s round.
The hosts kept their strong spell of form going on Sunday, beating relegation strugglers Genclerbirligi 0-1 on the road. They are now unbeaten in seven successive outings across competitions. The rock-solid defence is the main catalyst for the Akrepler’s recent successes.
Ersun Yanal’s troops conceded just one goal in the last five matches in all competitions. Can they keep the strongest attacking line in the division at bay here?
Antalyaspor vs Besiktas Head-to-head
Besiktas have had big success in the clashes against Akrepler historically. They won 39 and lost just 7 of 56 meetings with Antalyaspor.
However, Kara Kartallar lost one and drew one of the last two official encounters against Antalyaspor, including this season’s 1-1 draw in Istanbul.
Three of more goals were scored in six of the last seven head to head affairs.
Antalyaspor vs Besiktas Prediction
Besiktas have been red-hot in the last couple of months, winning 10 of the last 12 matches in all competitions. Nonetheless, they are up against the stubborn defensive line of Antalyaspor who have already proven to have what it takes to keep Besiktas at bay this season. The hosts have been very tough to break down at the start of the year.
Antalyaspor will sit tight at the back, carefully waiting for the opportunity to strike from the counter-attacks. Since they are unbeaten in the last two meetings with Besiktas, and since they did not lose a single of the last seven matches in all competitions, we can recognize the massive value in backing the home win or draw double chance at the 2.00 odds. You can also try with the draw at the half time at the 2.30 odds.
