There are only 5 rounds to play in the Super League but nothing is definite yet. We can’t say for certain who will be relegated or crowned. At the same time, the race for Champions League and Europa League spots continues. Since Trabzonspor were banned from UEFA organizations due to violating UEFA Fair Play regulations, now even the 5th placed Beşiktaş are in pursuit of the ticket to Europe.
I want to start my analysis by taking a look at Kayserispor’s last game. They caused a massive upset for Sivasspor fans in the last round when they handed the title contenders a disappointing loss, which probably ended their dreams to be the champions. It was a crucial victory for Kayserispor as they are currently sitting in the 16th place in the league table and they need every point to get out of the danger zone. They seemed to have benefited from the coronavirus lockdown as they managed to win 3 out of 4 games that were played after the league resumed. The in-form team has the potential to disappoint Beşiktaş as well but they have still deficiencies. Despite having kept a clean sheet against Sivasspor, who managed to score in each home game until the last round, they gave too many scoring chances to their opponents. They were lucky enough to leave the pitch without conceding a goal. Moreover, they will face Beşiktaş with the absence of Bernand Mensah, suspended for yellow cards accumulation.
As to Beşiktaş, I have only positive remarks. I bet no Beşiktaş fans would have dreamed before the coronavirus lockdown that they would be in the race for the Champions League spots. For those who don’t know let me explain why they have a pretty good shot at landing the Champions League although they are currently in the 5th place and only the first two spots are rewarded in the Turkish League. As Trabzonspor were suspended from European tournaments for the next season and it is almost certain that they will either win the title or become the runner-up, this means that the 3rd placed team will take the prize. You may think that this still doesn’t explain how Beşiktaş can overtake Sivasspor’s and Galatasaray’s spots. Well, you only have to take a look at the last 2 games of Beşiktaş. After the experienced striker Burak Yılmaz returned from his injury, Beşiktaş rampaged their opponents. They have a pretty easy fixture ahead of them except for the derby against Fenerbahçe, who are having a nightmarish season. Furthermore, the 4th placed Galatasaray are going downhill at the moment. In addition to all the suspended and injured players, yesterday it was announced that the loan contract of Henry Onyekuru have ended.
For all these reasons, I believe that Beşiktaş will fight tooth and nail to defeat their opponent this round. Note that Galatasaray will be playing against Trabzonspor and it is highly likely that they will drop some points. Sivasspor also will be hosted by the in-form team Kasımpaşa. Therefore, I believe that Beşiktaş will make sure to not waste this opportunity. If you are looking for the highest odds for this game, register for the best betting software.
