Besiktas Prediction – Can Besiktas use home advantage?

Despite being handed a heavy 4-2 defeat away from home in their opening match in Group K at Slovan Bratislava on Matchday 1, Besiktas still have reason to be hopeful of getting something in this home tie against Premier League outfit, Wolves, on Thursday night.

Besiktas haven’t been helped by having to play 3 of their last 4 matches in all competitions away from home and the results have shown that they’ve struggled on the road in recent times following losses at Gaziantepspor 3-2 and a 4-1 loss at Trabzonspor in the Turkish Super Lig.

The aforementioned loss at Slovan Bratislava in the Europa League topped this off, but when they did managed to return to their Vodafone Park ground, they earned a point in a 1-1 draw with Istanbul Basaksehir.

Recent results on home turf have seen Besiktas put together a 4-match unbeaten run, while results in the Europa League have produced mixed results with wins over B36, LASK Linz, Partizan and Sarpsborg, but have also lost their last two ties on the trot to Genk and Malmo.

Wolves Prediction – Can Wolves prove themselves?

It’s been a difficult start to this new season for Wolves and manager Nuno Espirito Santo as they’ve had to balance the rigours of the Premier League with their European involvement in the Europa League, as the west midlands club fight on two fronts.

Similar to Burnley last season, Wolves have made a slow start to their new Premier League campaign having won just 1 of their first 7 matches of the new term, whilst progressing through the early qualifying rounds of the Europa League (which they sailed through).

However, it’s now the serious business of qualifying from Group K in the Europa League on Thursday night, with Wolves heading into Matchday 2 following a disappointing 1-0 loss at home to Sporting Braga on Matchday 1.

Wolves will be hoping that their recent back-to-back wins over Reading (on penalties in the League Cup) and a 2-0 win over Watford in the Premier League will give them a timely boost ahead of this important clash with Besiktas.


Key-Facts – Besiktas v Wolves

  • Besiktas are unbeaten in their last 4 matches at home in all competitions
  • Wolves have won just 1 of their first 7 matches in the Premier League
  • Besiktas and Wolves have never met before in any competition


Betting Tips Verdict

Besiktas with home advantage stand a decent chance of getting something from this clash against a Wolves side that are yet to start firing this season.
