Malmo vs Besiktas
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 4th October 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Malmo.
Both of these teams have a unique history in European competition and this should be a good competitive game and an intriguing one when they go head to head on Thursday evening.
Even though they are the away side the bookmakers have installed the Turkish side Besiktas as the favourites but they are not odds on and offer very good value because of this.
Malmo opened their Europa League account with a 2-0 loss at Genk and are 4th in their group already with a minus 2 goal record and need to try and get something from this game. Coach Uwe Rosler has commented that he hopes their ground will be full and atmospheric for this game, with the ground holding 22,000 spectators he will need all the support he can get.
Besiktas had an easy opening game and beat Sarpsborg 08 3-1 in Turkey which felt like a routine win. They will be the favourites to qualify from this group and should do so with ease though this trip to Malmo with freezing weather predicted could be a difficult 90 minutes for the club.

Malmo vs Besiktas: Prediction
Skill should win the day and Besiktas have an array of quality on talent to get the job done. For them to have an objective where they have 6 points after 2 games will be to have one foot in the knockout stages already.
There is a lot of quality on show for this game including Vagner Love, Ryan Babel and Alvaro Negredo and we should see a game that has a few goals and entertainment in it. Besiktas though to claim an away win.
