Istanbul Basaksehir vs FC Copenhagen Prediction
Recent results achieved by Basaksehir do not come as a surprise to anyone closely following Turkish Super Lig. This team was so close to win the domestic title in numerous occasions in the last five years. They are doing a great job at the moment, leading the race with 52 points from 24 games at the moment.
Attacking duo Demba Ba and Edin Visca has produced so many goals and secured a lot of points for the squad. If you fancy playing goal scorers market, consider at least one of these two players.
During the Europa League break Istanbul played two Super Lig games. They demolished Gaziantep 3-1 FT and Goztepe 3-0 FT.
FC Copenhagen’s fans don’t have a lot of room for optimism. They have probably lost the fight for top spot in Super Liga to Midtjylland, being 12 points behind at the moment. The team is entering this clash with two back to back losses against AaB Aalborg and Horsens.
Backing home win is the most logical choice here. FC Copenhagen are obviously going through a big crisis, and we don’t see them reaching the next stage of Europa League.
