Tip Reasoning

  • All but one of Besiktas’ last seven games in all competitions have produced over 2.5 goals, with both teams scoring in six of those matches.
  • Sporting have failed to net in just one of their 12 competitive starts this season.
  • The Portuguese champions have won four of their last five games in all competitions, though Besiktas have lost just one of their six home games this term, winning four.

Both teams chasing in Istanbul

A draw will be no good for either Besiktas or Sporting Lisbon in Istanbul this Tuesday night and that should lead to an exciting contest between the Turkish and Portuguese champions at Vodafone Park.

After both losing their opening two matches against Ajax and Borussia Dortmund, the sides already have a six point gap to bridge in Group C and know that they’ll need to chase a maximum haul from their two fixtures against each other to stand any real chance of progressing to the last 16.

The current scenario facing the teams looks enough to influence an end to end clash in midweek, but our expectations for such are enhanced by the sides’ generally impressive goal scoring form this season.

Goals look guaranteed at Vodafone Park

While the pair struggled to make an impact in their first two games in this competition, they have been typically prolific domestically since the start of their respective campaigns.

Besiktas have fired in 15 goals across their last eight matches, contributing to seven of those games producing over 2.5 goals in total. Their defensive issues have also seen their opponents score in six of those fixtures though, and they’re likely to be exploited again by a Sporting outfit who have failed to net in just one of their dozen outings on all fronts this term.

Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score is our confident selection as a result for this Tuesday’s tie and we’re also going with a 2-2 correct score. Sporting are in better form overall having won four of their last five, though the hosts have lost just one of their six starts at Vodafone Park this season, winning four.
