Tip Reasoning

  • The last six meetings between these two sides has averaged 3.83 goals per game.
  • Both teams have scored in five of the hosts last seven games.
  • Besiktas are without a clean sheet in any of their previous six.

An Istanbul derby is upon us as rivals Fenerbahce and Besiktas take to the field at the Estadio Sukru Saracoglu on Sunday afternoon.

Inconsistency hindering Fenerbahce

The hosts blew an opportunity to break into the Champions League (UCL) spots as they were dealt a disappointing 3-2 defeat away against Gaziantep. That was their fifth defeat this season and it couldn’t have been more ill-timed as that result meant that Vitor Pereira’s side slid out of the European positions altogether and down to fifth in the table. They come into this one winning, drawing and losing two games each in their last six league fixtures but will feel they can get something here as Besiktas have been severely underwhelming in all competitions.

Besiktas secured all three points as they won against Kayserispor last weekend and it was a victory that ended a five-match winless streak in the Turkish top-flight. However, it’s a result that doesn’t really give them hope as they’ve been exceptionally underwhelming. Excluding last weekend’s victory, The Black Eagles have won just three of their last 16 games across all competition and that horrific run saw boss Sergen Yalcin given his marching orders and now Besiktas Under-19 coach Onder Karaveli is tasked with guiding them until they appoint a new permanent manager.

Goals galore

Both of these sides have looked vulnerable defensively recently and we think both teams will see this as an opportunity to lift morale and claim valuable points. As such, we think there will be goals here. The last six meetings between these two sides has averaged 3.83 goals per game and we see at least three goals in this game. We also think that Besiktas are in disarray and give the edge to Fenerbahce.
