Besiktas vs Fenerbahce
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Monday, 25 February 2019
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Vodafone Stadyumu (Istanbul).
The 23rd round of Turkish Super Lig is going to be wrapped up with a derby clash between Besiktas and Fenerbahce.
The hosts managed to get back in the race for the 2nd spot after a series of very good results. Although they had some financial troubles this winter, home side missed the chance to win just once in the last five rounds. They also celebrated three times in a row and Besiktas are three points behind Galatasaray.
Adem Ljajic and the lads are one of the most productive teams in the competition, while their defence is doing a pretty good job. Home side has been pretty confident when playing in front of their fans, however they managed to win just once in the last three occasions.
On the other hand, Fenerbahce are having severe troubles as they have the same number of points as Ankaragucu who are the first team sitting in the relegation zone. Although they have been considered as title favourites, the visitors managed to book only five victories so far in the season.
Ersun Yanal’s side has been pretty tight in the back, however their terrible finishing brought them into the trouble. Fenerbahce managed to pick up just one victory from away grounds and in the last five outings they managed to snatch only two points.
Besiktas vs Fenerbahce: Head-to-head
Fenerbahce have been more successful in their recent head to head clashes and they lost just once in the last nine encounters against Besiktas.
Their matches have been a joy to watch in terms of goals scored as the crowd was unable to see both teams finding the back of the net just once in the last six occasions.
Besiktas vs Fenerbahce: Prediction
Although this is a derby clash, and these matches are generally hard for prediction, the hosts are in a much better momentum. Besiktas should be capable of beating their rivals and pushing them into a really tough situation.
This is going to be an exciting battle as both sides are going to search for a positive result. Although the visitors haven’t been too efficient this season, we are going to follow the tradition of their head to head clashes and both sides should be able to score.
