Fenerbahce vs Besiktas
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Monday, 24 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Ulker Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Fenerbahce have struggled early in the new campaign and now sit in the mid-table with just six points earned in five outings, hosting Besiktas for their Matchday 6 clash on Monday evening in the hope they can put on a solid challenge and catch up with the league’s top 4 with important points at Ulker Stadyumu.
They’ve seen four losses in five outings and have a thrashing loss at Dinamo Zagreb in Europa League behind them, only beating Konyaspor beforehand to end a losing streak where they were beaten by Yeni Malatyaspor, Goztepe, and Kayserispor. Fener have been scoring more goals at home and will now hope they can bounce back once again!
However, Besiktas will be no easy rivals to be and promise a great challenge, coming into the match on the back of a much better series where they earned four wins and a draw in their last five outings – outclassing Sarpsborg 08 in their respective Europa League clash on Thursday. They’ve netted 11 goals along the way and although they conceded goals, we have seen them regularly outgun the rivals.
Fenerbahce vs Besiktas: Head-to-head
- Fenerbahce have earned a thrashing 3-0 win in the sides last head-to-head clash at this ground.
- Besiktas have last bagged a win at Ulker Stadyumu back in 2009, earning a thriller 2-4 Cup win.
- We’ve seen three or more goals in all of the sides’ last four matchups.
