Genclerbirligi vs Besiktas Predictions

Genclerbirligi managed to avoid a trio of defeats on Tuesday when they progressed in the Turkish Cup at the expense of Pendikspor, but their problems against top flight opposition are far from healed. The weekend saw them lose 2-1 at Rizespor after a loss at home to Galatasaray, and they have only won two of their eight Turkish Super Lig games so far this season.

This puts them in 8th position, which is still a marginal improvement on last season. However, they have only scored eight goals in the league this season and are facing a Besiktas side with the second best defensive record in the division.

Genclerbirligi’s attacking efforts haven’t been much more successful at home in Ankara. They have failed to score in two of their four matches at home and managed an average of one goal per game. Besiktas, on the other hand, have kept a clean sheet in three of their four away league games this season.

The visitors are in excellent form at the start of this season. They have won six and drawn two of their Super Lig matches and recently beat Napoli away from home in the Champions League group stages, to five them five points from their three group games so far. They remain unbeaten in normal time since a 2-1 loss to Konyaspor in May.

Besiktas’ 3-0 win over Antalyaspor at the weekend made it five wins on the bounce in all competitions, and they will be happy that Talisca managed to bag a brace to potentially kicks tart his season. He has scored three goals in his five Super Lig appearances now and added one more in the Champions League, whilst Cenk Tosun has netted five in eight in the league. In my opinion either of these would provide good value for a goalscorer bet

Considering Besiktas’ excellent form at the moment and Benclerbirligi’s less than impressive start to the season, I think odds of 10/11 for Besiktas to Win are very good value for money. That’s what I’m going for for my main tip, and I’m backing a 2-0 correct score prediction at 8/1 as well.
