Besiktas Preview – Can Besiktas make a positive start?

Besiktas won last season’s Turkish Super Lig title by the skin of their teeth (or just 1 goal) as it turned out, thanks to a 2-1 win away from home at Goztepe on the final day of the season which saw Friday’s hosts pip the runners-up, Galatasaray, by the slenderest of margins.

Besiktas lost just two of their last 10 games overall towards the end of last season though and this helped the hosts to a domestic top flight title and also included a 3-2 win away at tonight’s opponents, Rizespor, whom they’ve beaten in each of their last four meetings.

The hosts ended the season with a commanding home record of 14-3-3 49/14 which not only included 10 clean sheets but also saw Besiktas score 2 goals or more in 13 of these 20 games, while forward Larin (19 goals) led the way up front.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Rizespor Preview – Can Rizespor cause early upset?

Rizespor finished last season in the bottom half of the Turkish top flight in 13th place having lost four out of their final six games towards the end of the Super Lig campaign which included losses against Genclerbirligi, Friday night’s hosts, Besiktas, Yeni Malatyaspor and Istanbul Basaksehir.

Although overall results were questionable towards the end of the campaign, Rizespor picked up four wins from their final six games of the season on their travels which included most notably, a 4-3 win away from home at runners-up, Galatasaray.

However, the bigger picture shows that Rizespor have managed to win just five of their last 29 matches on their travels and so this upcoming trip to Besiktas could stretch them to the limit.
