We’re back with another Turkish – Super League prediction. This time we will visit Vodafone Park, Istanbul. The 9th placed Beşiktaş are going to host 13th placed Denizlispor.
Beşiktaş have started to realize what they are capable of recently. They have not lost in the local league since they defeated the league leaders Alanyaspor. Of course, many problems they have had since the pre-season still persist. We have seen that they were not on the same level with any European team in Europa League matches. Last night, they were beaten 3:1 by Braga on the road and this was their 4th loss in 4 occasions in Group K of UEFA Europa League. Now that they have been eliminated from the Europa League, their only objective will be finishing the Super League in top 4 and try to compete in European competitions next season. In the last round of the local league, they managed to defeat Antalyaspor on the road. We have witnessed a more direct style of football implemented by the head coach Abdullah Avcı. I believe that their streak is likely to continue for a couple of weeks as they have a rather easy fixture ahead. We have some interesting facts for the home side before we analyze Denizlispor. Besiktas have won their last 8 home matches against Denizlispor in all competitions. Moreover, Besiktas have won 9 of their last 11 home matches in Turkish Super League. In the last four rounds, they have won 3 times and drawn once.
On the other hand, everything went downhill for Denizlispor after a stellar start. After two consecutive victories in the first two rounds, they have only managed to win once. Currently, they have 11 points gathered in 10 rounds with 3 wins, 2 draws, and 5 defeats. In the last 6, they have won only once, drawn once, and lost 4 times. They were outclassed by Sivasspor at home in the last round. Their objective is crystal clear: sign some players in the winter break and make an effort to stay in the league.
All in all, Beşiktaş is the clear favorite in this match-up. It is nonsense to expect Denizlispor to go against Beşiktaş at the moment. My pick is Beşiktaş to win. I will place my bet on VIP-IBC, you should open an account on the best betting software now and start winning big. Good luck!
