Besiktas to win the game
After having suffered just two defeats at home in 2021, Besiktas are looking good to extend their decent record against Gaziantep. Besiktas might have picked up four wins against this opponent in the last six matches, but just four of these games have taken place recently. In these recent games, Gaziantep have won both home games against Besiktas, who did not end both matches with the full complement of players. However, Besiktas might just reverse this trend.
More than 2.5 goals in total
The game is likely to be very dependent on goals from Besiktas, who have the likes of Cyle Larin in good form. After scoring 19 goals last season, the 26-year-old has opened his account for the campaign already. Even in an away defeat, Gaziantep were still fighting to the end and came up with two goals.
Goals from both teams – yes
Gaziantep were able to get two goals in the opening game of the season. They will be a major threat to Besiktas’ objective of back-to-back clean sheets. Besiktas have conceded in both visits to the Gaziantep Stadium.
