Besiktas have shown frailties over the last few weeks even if they have stayed unbeaten in the domestic league so far. Besiktas have managed to just one win in the last three matches across all competitions. The team’s concentration may be swayed with the midweek Champions League game against Ajax coming up. Altay will be keen to make an impression in the first meeting against Besiktas for almost 2 decades. Altay have shown decent form even if they have lost home games against the likes of Fenerbahce.
Total goals more than 2.5
Besiktas have seen a remarkable 13 goals scored in the first six matches while Altay are not far behind with 12 goals. Both teams have been relatively poor at the back with a lack of clean sheets of late. The goalscoring exploits of these teams have been quite excellent over the last few weeks.
Both teams to score – yes
Besiktas have been the top scoring team in the Turkish league this season. Altay have come up with 12 goals and it is just one behind Besiktas coming into the game. Even though the past meetings between Besiktas and Altay have seen Altay not score, this game could be different.
Altay vs Besiktas: Besiktas to maintain their unbeaten run?
Altay have made a very strong start to the season. The club are now just two points away from the top of the table. If not for a poor defensive record, Altay maybe even at the top of the table. The home defeats against Fenerbahce have cost the team. Altay will be without Khaly Thiam due to suspension, while César Pinares and Ahmed Yasser Rayan are injured.
Besiktas have lost composure over the last few games. The result against Demirspor has the potential to spill over into forthcoming matches, which are coming thick and fast. There are plenty of injury problems for the table leaders with Mehmet Topal, Domagoj Vida, Ajdin Hasic, Umut Meras, Georges-Kévin Nkoudou, Necip Uysal, and Alex Teixeira out injured, while Valentin Rosier is suspended.
