Istanbul Basaksehir -1.50 Asian Handicap

Reason for tip

The Turkish side were more than worth their 4-0 victory in the reverse meeting between these two sides and a win here will guarantee that they qualify as group winners. Meanwhile, Hearts have been outclassed at various points in this competition and given they already know their fate and are conceding an average of nearly three goals per match, it would be a surprise to see them trouble the hosts. We like Istanbul Basaksehir to cover a -1.5 Asian handicap.

Istanbul Basaksehir 3-1

Reason for tip

The hosts won 4-0 away at Hearts and were better in all departments. They should be able to score at least three here but given the visitors slight upturn in form, they can also get in on the scoring act. A 3-1 home victory seems possible.

Istanbul Basaksehir vs Hearts Predictions

  • The hosts won the reverse fixture 4-0 and there was a clear gulf in class.
  • Basaksehir only need to match Fiorentinas’s result to top the group but a win would put it beyond all doubt.
  • Hearts have conceded nearly three goals per game on average across their group stage games.

Hosts looking to guarantee first place finish

The Turkish outfit come into this one having lost away to Fiorentina last week and it puts their position at the top of the table under threat. However, it’s entirely in their own hands as they boast the better head-to-head record after winning the home meeting with the Italians by a scoreline of 3-0. All they need to do to qualify as group winners is match Fiorentina’s result, but if they can secure another win against Hearts, it will be a formality.

That victory for Fiorentina put an end to Hearts European campaign with a game to spare and now the Scottish side will simply be playing for Pride. Despite knowing their fate, Hearts were able to beat Rigas FS in their previous Europa Conference League and that result put an end to their miserable winless run of six games. However, they will be without a number of players for this encounter and given the insignificance of this clash to the visitors, it would be a surprise to see them go for it.

Istanbul Basaksehir can cover a handicap

The Jam Tarts have absolutely nothing to play for here and even if they did, Istanbul Basaksehir have already shown they’re a class apart and on home soil, they also need to secure top spot and they can cover a -1.5 Asian handicap.
