I have another prediction from Turkish Super League. This time we have match from İstanbul, where the third placed Başakşehir are going to host the 7th placed Beşiktaş at home.
Başakşehir have gathered 40 points so far with 11 victories, 7 draws, and 3 losses. Having won 7 times, drawn 3 times, and lost only once at Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadium, they are the third best team at home. Their only loss at home came against Fenerbahçe only in the second round of the league. Since then, they have been on a remarkable run.
As to Beşiktaş, they have recently sacked Abdullah Avcı. Sergen Yalçın, who is a former player of Beşiktaş, replaced him. For those who don’t know, Sergen was considered as the most talented Turkish football player of all-time by many and the one thing that distinguished him from the others was his intelligence. Beşiktaş won two straight games since he came and the overall morale of the team has been improving slowly as well. I do not expect him to work miracles with this squad but surely he will be better than Abdullah Avcı. Beşiktaş couldn’t sign as many players as they wanted during the winter break due to financial problems but the signing of Kevin-Prince Boateng should not be underestimated as well. I highly believe that the season is not over for them yet. The point difference between Beşiktaş and Başakşehir is only 4.
All in all, although Başakşehir are the favorites, there is no doubt that this will be a close game. If Beşiktaş loses in this round, then their chances to win it all will be very little. I’d like to take my chances by betting on a draw. I will not go for high stakes. The odds are good enough to take this risk.
