Fresh off the back of a humiliating 4-0 home defeat to the hands of Giresunspor, Besiktas headline Fridays Turkish Super Lig action as they take on another side situated towards the bottom as they travel to Kasimpasa. Kasimpasa find themselves in 19th place in the table with a return of just ten points from their first fourteen league games. For Besiktas, they get the opportunity to play before all of their main rivals and they know a win on Friday night will catapult them back into the top 6 albeit potentially only for a short amount of time.
Following last weekends dismal 4-0 thrashing to Giresunspor the Turkish press have been circulating the rumours that Besiktas manager Sergen Yalcin, was in real danger of losing his job, however he remains but he needs his side to win this game or he could lose this job. If Yalcin could handpick opponents it would be Kasimpasa who have just picked up five points in their last 11 matches. Yes Besiktas’s form isn’t much better but the smart money has to be on them to get a much needed win and catapult themselves back into the top 6.
Over 2.5 goals
In a game that both sides will be desperate to not to lose, this could be a fixture that is tense and cagey. The first goal will be huge for either side and from whenever that is scored the game could really open up. We are going to back the over 2.5 goal market in this one, as when looking at the stats between the two, Kasimpasa have seen over 2.5 goals occur in two of their last five, whilst Besiktas have seen it in four of their last five. The last five head to head clashes between the pair has seen Beskitas dominate, but over 2.5 goals has happened in four of the last five contests between the two and we will be seriously hoping it can happen again.
Both teams to score
Despite the goal fest that usually takes place between the sides, the games can often be quite one sided, with both teams scoring in three of the last five contests between the teams. The last two matches hasn’t seen both teams score. With two teams who have pretty poor defensive stats, we are hoping that both teams have their shooting boots on and we will be backing both teams to score here.
