Basaksehir vs Besiktas Prediction & Betting tips
Turkish Süper Lig has two big derbies ready this weekend. Fenerbahce will play against leaders Galatasaray Istanbul on Saturday, with the second Istanbul derby between Basaksehir and Besiktas taking place on Matchday 26. Accordingly, there can be a lot of movement in the Süper Lig on this matchday in the first four places. Basaksehir and Besiktas are currently tied and can either reduce or even equalize their small lead over the top-of-table Galatasaray. This makes both derby festivals this weekend even more exciting. At the same time, Fenerbahce faces the threat of Fenerbahce being overtaken by Fenerbahce against Galatasaray. At least in this case, the leading group would continue together and make the fight for the title nine games before the end of the season even more intense. At least for Besiktas, there is a real possibility to take the league lead by defeating Galatasaray at the same time, although a difference of eight goals would have to be overcome. At the same time Fenerbahce is, as already mentioned, in fourth place with only three points away on a mistake of all parties.
After a temporary lead, Basaksehir fell back to third in the last three games, after only four points from these three matches. The low point was the surprising and yet clear 4: 1 defeat in the last game against the relegation battle Alanyaspor. The draw against Konyaspor and the subsequent home defeat in the derby against Fenerbahce ushered in this weaker phase. However, Basaksehir is almost unbeaten at home in 16 home games, with the exception of the 2-0 defeat by Fenerbahce. Despite the fact that Basaksehir leads the smallest squad and the lowest market value compared to the other three big Istanbul title aspirants, it was always extremely efficient in terms of point yield. So Basaksehir, though modest, at least made regular victories when it mattered. His weaknesses revealed the Elf under coach Abdullah Avci, perhaps only in the rather mediocre yield of the emerging scoring chances. With 12 goals from 22 games, the team’s top striker is Emmanuel Adebayor. However, the yellow captain and preparer Emre Belozoglu and the strong center-back Alexandru Epureanu, both missing in the derby, are a heavy loss.
If you exclude the unsightly defeats against Bayern in the Cheampions League, so Besiktas could convince in the Süper Lig and Türkiye Kupasi and now work again on the second place in the table. In the Süper Lig Besiktas has been unbeaten in eight games and the last important derby against Fenerbahce was won in a tough match 3-1. Remarkable is also the defense, as the defensive has allowed in the last five Süper Lig games only two goals, while you scored 12 goals. However, there are several disadvantages for the upcoming derby against Basaksehir. For one thing, you have the lost Champions League game against Bayern in the bones and in the back of the head, from which one must now solve. In addition, Besiktas five players fall out due to injury, including three central defenders. In addition, the right winger Ricardo Quaresma is still blocked by a red card for five games. Senol Günes is therefore limited in his tactical planning and must avoid further failures. Finally, Besiktas will play at Basaksehir and here the Günes Elf is not the strongest troupe in the league. Besiktas won only three out of the last ten competitive matches while losing three and contending the rest in a draw.
