PAOK vs Besiktas
Champions League Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 25 August 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Toumba Stadium (Thessaloniki).
PAOK has been unbeaten in the last five matches in the schedule, following a goalless draw at home against Aris in their last league clash. They have only one win in that period, and three of their four draws ended as goalless encounters.
Their last Greece Super League season ended towards the middle of the last month as they finished second in the race for the title.
Besiktas were the second runners up in the last season, Turkish Super Lig. Their schedule in the campaign also finished at the end of last month.
The Black Eagles were on a three-game winning streak in their league with a clean sheet in each. The visitor will be on the back of winning five of their last ten away fixtures in the schedule. They will visit after a 0-3 win on the road against Genclerbirligi in the previous Super Lig fixture.

PAOK vs Besiktas Prediction
PAOK enjoys the ground advantage in the game, and will probably make good use of that in ninety minutes to turn the fixture in their favor against Besiktas in the quarter-finals of the qualifier.
Their recent five league fixtures saw them staying unbeaten along with a clean sheet. This shows that their defense is strong and could withhold the Turkish attacks.
Besiktas hasn’t been at their best when playing away from home, even in the league. This could prove fatal to them in the match, which is why we are forced to back the home win in full-time.
With a close encounter in hand, it will not be ideal to expect a huge margin from the clash. The tip for over 1.5 goals from the goals area will probably serve the purpose for the punters.
