Wolves vs Besiktas Prediction

Wolves threw away a 3-1 lead in their last clash in Group K with Braga and ultimately ended up sharing the spoils with the latter, who huffed and puffed to post a 3-3 scorecard at the last blast of the whistle. The draw meant that the English outfit, who have garnered ten points so far, would now have to play second fiddle in the cluster, to none other than Braga themselves.

Nevertheless, the hosts should feel confident of progressing to the next round on a positive note. The home side have featured at the losing end just once in their past fifteen matchups overall.

It is also worth mentioning that Wolves are currently unbeaten in their last six games at Molineux Stadium. They have picked up the win in four of those clashes as well.

On the other hand, Besiktas finally got off the mark in Group K in their previous encounter with Slovan Bratislava at home. Despite trailing by a goal at the break, the visitors found an equalizer through Enzo Rico, and then the winner through a stoppage-time penalty that was coolly converted by Adem Ljajic.

Be that as it may, the away side are still stuck to the bottom of the ladder. And have already kissed their hopes of progression goodbye. The Turkish side have been tame throughout their Europa campaign, and even more in their outings.

Disappointingly, they have lost all of their trips on the road, by a two-goal margin.

Taking into account that they admitted defeat to Wolves in their maiden clash at Vodafone Park as well, Besiktas have absolutely no reason to have their hopes up in this one.

Furthermore, Wolves have looked organized at the back and have conceded just five goals in Group K so far. Only one of which, was at home.

Additionally, Besiktas have found the back of the net just thrice in their trips across Europa so far.

Considering that all of the group stage clashes at Molineux Stadium have been low scoring affairs, count on Wolves to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
