Besiktas vs Konyaspor
Besiktas come into this game with just three wins from their last seven in the Turkish Super Lig and have only won one of their last three home games. Konyaspor, meanwhile, have only lost three of their last 11 in the Super Lig and just one of their last five matches on the road.
Both teams have scored in five of the last seven meetings between these two clubs, which matches our prediction for Friday’s clash. Five of the hosts’ and four of the visitors last six league games have also ended with both teams on the scoreboard, so you can see just why we’re backing goals in this game at both ends of the pitch.
With each on Friday’s opponents only losing one of their last six matches in the league and both in desperate need for the points, for very different reasons, we’re predicting that this game is going to end in a 1-1 draw. Konyaspor might sit third from bottom of the Super Lig table but they have three draws, one win and only suffered one defeat from their last five away games, while the hosts have dropped points in four of their last six home games in all competitions.
Besiktas score an average of 1.86 goals per home game and concede 0.93 goals while Konyaspor score an average of 1.07 goals on the road and concede 1.50 goals, which ties in perfectly with our prediction for both teams to score and the scoreline to end 1-1 on Friday.
