Besiktas vs Antalyaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 26 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Vodafone Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Besiktas are going to host Antalyaspor in the third round of the Turkish Super Lig on Sunday evening.
Home side enjoys a good start of the title race as they have booked two victories so far. Last time, they finished as 4th, although they were just four points away from the top spot.
Besiktas have been very productive with their 69 goals last season, while their defence was the best in the competition.
Ricardo Quaresma and he lads haven’t suffered a defeat at home ground and they let their opponents escape with a point just three times.
The hosts are one of the hottest favourites for winning the title and they want to continue their good run.
Antalyaspor managed to survive last season although they had huge problems. Financial troubles had a great impact on the squad and their results, but Hamza Hamzaoglu’s side managed to stay five points clear of the relegation.
The visitors haven’t been so bad in the front, however their defence allowed too many goals. They managed to improve their awful away record in the season when they booked their only three victories at away pitches.
Antalyaspor cannot be proud of their new star as they managed to snatch just a point so far.
Besiktas vs Antalyaspor: Head-to-head
Besiktas as one of the most popular domestic clubs have been much better in their head to head clashes and they managed to beat their rivals five times in the last seven occasions. Their clashes are usually high scoring ones.
Besiktas vs Antalyaspor: Prediction
The hosts are strong favourites in this one, and although they have another very important match in the Europa League qualifiers on Thursday, they should be capable enough of booking their third win in a row.
Besiktas have been involved in high scoring matches lately and as their encounters have also been pretty efficient, the crowd should enjoy a lot of goals. In this one, we are expecting to see these two teams producing at least three goals in total.
