Besiktas vs Fenerbahce
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 19 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Vodafone Park (Istanbul)
An Istanbul Derby is set to take place this Sunday. Two of the most successful clubs in the country will battle it out for bragging rights.
The hosts are fourth in the table and are likely to finish third of fourth this season as well. They are a long way away from the title race just like they were last season.
Fenerbahce is struggling currently with a two game winless run. With 14 wins and 10 defeats they are presently 7th in the rankings.
The Yellow Canaries are also bound to finish there at the end of the season.
Besiktas vs Fenerbahce: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Fenerbahce remain unbeaten in their last five meetings with this opposition.
- Besiktas previously won this fixture back in February 2018.
- Both sides found the back of the net in seven of their eight previous clashes.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in six of those eight games as well.
- The last two competitive head to head games here ended as draws.
- Both sides have a win each in their five latest clashes at this ground.
- Both sides scored in four of those five games here.
- Three of the most recent meetings here had over 2.5 goals in total.
Besiktas vs Fenerbahce: Prediction
The home side is in good form in their home matches. They are currently enjoying a two match winning streak and has lost only once in their last six games here. Even though the reverse fixture was won by Fenerbahce, the opposition has home advantage in this math.
The two recent clashes between them at this ground ended as draw too. At the same time, the visitors have not won any away game since February. So I think we will see the home team get all three points in this game.
In majority of their recent encounters both these teams scored goals. The latest three head to heads saw a similar score line with over 2.5 goals as well. The hosts have netted 54 goals this season, the majority of which came in home fixtures.
The visitors are also not bad in terms of netting goals themselves. Even with an unbeaten run going on in matches away from home, they have found the net more often than not. So I am backing both sides to score on Sunday.
