Situation as it stands – final day drama guaranteed?

Deciding the 2020/21 Turkish league champions has gone down to the very last round of fixtures, after leaders Besiktas came unstuck for the second game running to leave the state of play at the summit tantalisingly poised. Particularly as three points wouldn’t necessarily guarantee the title for either of the three teams still in contention.

Besiktas occupy top spot but only account of a marginally superior goal difference (+2) on Galatasaray, with that duo locked on 81 points. Should both be leading, we could see a scenario where both have to chase further goals. The latter would be a worst case scenario for Fenerbahce, though, with the side in third realistically needing that pair to lose in order to bridge a two-point deficit, as their goal difference is vastly inferior.

Goztepe – Can they find sufficient motivation to cause a nuisance?

Perhaps the most disconcerting aspect if you’re a rival supporter to Besiktas will be the motivation factor for this Goztepe (W13 D12 L14) side. Marooned in tenth, the team dubbed ‘Goz Goz’ can only fall a maximum of one position should they lose, while a win would do little for them other than consolidate their current position in the table. It is this, then, which has possibly contributed to a lacklustre end to the season.

Tuesday’s 5-3 defeat away in Genclerbirligi followed hot on the heels of a 1-0 reverse at home to Konyaspor. Teams in 20th and 11th respectively. They’ve only one win in the last six (D2 L3) – 3-2 away to 16th-placed Antalyaspor – and none in the last three as hosts, losing 3-1 here to Galatasaray only last month. Yet they have only drawn a blank in front of goal in one of the last nine on home turf (W5 D1 L3).


Besiktas Win & Both To Score



Besiktas – Will faltering Super Lig leaders limp across the line?

A first Super Lig title for five seasons, and sixteenth overall, has gone from being a mere formality to anything but. Four points from their past two fixtures would have sealed it. As it was, they lost both. A 3-1 defeat at Turk Telekom Stadium at the hands of second-place Galatasaray preceding a shock 2-1 loss at home to Karagumruk, a side in ninth at the time and whom they thrashed 4-1 away from home earlier in the season.

Now, Besiktas (W25 D6 L8) are pressed into winning their final fixture. The Black Eagles could be in serious trouble therefore, having sustained 2-1 and 2-0 defeats at this venue in each of the previous two Super Lig campaigns. This is before even taking into account their current away form. That loss at Galatasaray made it two wins in five on the road (D1 L2), while it was the fourth away match in six conceding at least twice.

Goztepe Vs Besiktas Betting Advice

These are nervy times for those of a Besiktas persuasion. It needn’t have been this way, of course, had they done the business leading up to this final encounter, which takes place at a problematic venue. A win is paramount for the visitors. However, they are winless in three of their past five away Super Lig matches (W2 D1), as well as tasting defeat in this very fixture, away to Goztepe, in each of the past two seasons.


Goztepe Vs Besiktas – Key Facts:

  • Each of the previous six Super Lig meetings between these sides has been won by the home side that day, with Besiktas beaten here in 2018/19 and 2019/20.
  • The last two meetings saw both teams score, meanwhile. That bet landed in four of Goztepe‘s last six at home, and, identically, four of the past six away for Besiktas.
  • Besiktas‘ last nine away league games produced three or more goals on eight occasions. Meanwhile Goztepe have only failed to score in one of their last nine at home.


Goztepe have nothing on the line, though. Content in mid-table, they have display form that is in line with a side ready for the season to end, with one win from the last six having lost the last two. They do tend to score here, however, recently netting in eight successive home outings. Meanwhile Besiktas boast a solitary clean sheet in their previous six away games, making Both Teams to Score very appealing.
