Besiktas vs Slovan Bratislava Prediction

Besiktas were on the road the last match-day, as they took on Konyaspor. In the toughly-fought game, either side tried their best to find the back of the net. But the defense at both ends of the pitch stood strong and dealt smartly with many attacks.

However, towards the end of the match, Besiktas did get the better of the opposition backline and slotted in the only goal and winner of the game.

Bratislava has a similar story to share as well. They did have the home advantage but failed to make anything out of it for very long periods in the game. Once again, towards the end of the match, 13 minutes from the final whistle to be precise, the hosts scored the first goal of the battle. Five minutes later they added one more, to ensure their 2-0 win.

This Thursday, consider the respective positions of the teams in the table, and their sources of motivation to perform well. The Turks have been mathematically ruled out of progression and might face a pointlessness in this fixture. However, their opposite number are still in contention to get through, and likely we can expect them to put on a good fight.

In addition, take into account how the reverse leg turned out. In the six-goal thriller, the Slovakians scored four, and the two from the Turkish contingent had come in the form of a penalty and an own goal.

Moreover, consider that Besiktas have lost all of their matches so far in the competition, and have scored the least, as well as conceded the most. In addition, Bratislava have won eight of their last ten matches and surely are in form.

Rightfully expect the visitors, Slovan Bratislava to emerge victorious this Thursday.
