Besiktas vs Ankaragucu Match preview
It has to be said that 2020 was not so kind towards Besiktas as they started the year with four consecutive losses in their overall record.
However, the host made a comeback into the league to climb to the 5th place by losing only one of their five fixtures after that losing streak.
Besiktas was on the road in their previous encounter to face Alanyaspor. They took all three points from the match which ended in a 1-2 scoreline.
With just 3 losses in their last 11 home matches across all major contests, Besiktas looks prepared to face Ankaragucu on their own turf.
It has to be noted that Ankaragucu has failed to mark a victory in any of their recent 13 visits to Vodafone Park since 2003.
Having won only 3 matches in their last 20 overall fixtures in the schedule, Ankaragucu doesn’t show any promise in the clash.
Ankaragucu will be visiting after a 0-3 loss at home to the likes of Sivasspor in their previous encounter in the league.
Moreover, their away streak is also poor with just one win in the last 11 outings. Also, they have won only two of the 12 league away fixtures so far this season.
Looking at these stats, Besiktas will be taking a walk in the park for the three points from the match.
Besiktas vs Ankaragucu Prediction
Firstly, Besiktas have a clear home ground advantage in the match and seems to have used it well in the campaign too.
With just 2 losses in their 12 home matches until now, the host is one of the sides with the best home record in the league.
In addition to that, they have an unbeaten streak at home against the visitors as mentioned earlier (13W). This will give an upper hand for the home team in the clash.
The betting tips for the home win is too low to get any good returns. Since Besiktas has marked their recent two wins against Ankaragucu in 2018 and 2019 with the same 4-1 scoreline.
So, the tip of Besiktas to win with a -1 handicap at 1.75 will be the better option to try in the match.
Ankaragucu is likely to concede a couple of goals in the math, courtesy to their poor form away from home in the league season. Hence, over 2.5 goals in full-time will be a possibility in the clash.
As such, over 2.5 goals with 1.44 odds will be the best bet to go with for the punters in the clash at Vodafone Park.
