Besiktas vs Antalyaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 13 June 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Vodafone Park (Istanbul)
The fifteen-time champions of Turkey are looking for yet another title this season. But they are facing serious competition from other top teams in the league. After winning half of their 26 matches the clack eagles are 5th in the table.
What they need right now is a major upgrade in defense which has been giving away goals consistently. They have the worst backline among the top six teams in the table now.
The visitors have been on an unbeaten run for some time now. Like most of the teams in the mid-table, they have problems in keeping a tight defense. This will be a problem against an attacking side like Besiktas.
Besiktas vs Antalyaspor: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Besiktas have won four of the last 5 meetings with this opposition.
- Both sides scored in the lasts 4 head to head matches on the trot.
- Those 4 games also have more than 2.5 goals in total.
- Besiktas has 3 wins and a defeat in the last 5 clashes at this ground.
- They have kept three clean sheets during that spell of play.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in the majority of those games as well.
- The Black Eagles are on a 4 game unbeaten run in the league.
Besiktas vs Antalyaspor: Prediction
Besiktas have given away a fair share of the goals they scored this season. They have done well in the scoring department too with 40 goals netted so far. Antalya has a good attacking unit too and is scoring at an average of more than a goal per game. The head to head stats also points towards a scoreline with both sides getting in the score sheet. So I am backing both sides to score on Saturday.
Besiktas have lost two of their home games so far. One of those was against Sivasspor which was quite expected and the other was against Yeni who are on the brink of the relegation zone. The vast majority of both their games this season had over 2.5 goals. The head to head stats also shows a similar scoreline in recent matches. So I am backing on a high scoring game with both sides netting goals.
Besiktas vs Antalyaspor: Betting Tips
