Hearts Preview – Can the Jambos make home advantage count?

Hearts qualified for the UEFA Europa League after finishing third behind Old Firm sides Celtic and Rangers in the 2021-22 Scottish Premiership. However, they were beaten by Zurich over two legs in a play-off, which saw them drop into the Europa Conference League.

Robbie Neilson’s Hearts have had a mixed bag of results in the Premiership this season. The Jambos took seven points from their opening three before losing to the champions at Celtic Park. They returned to winning ways with a 3-2 home success over St Johnstone but were narrowly beaten at Livingston last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

With Fiorentina also in the group, this will no doubt be a tough campaign for the Edinburgh outfit. Nevertheless, can they start with a positive result on home soil on Thursday?

Istanbul Basaksehir Preview – Will the Grey Owls continue fine form?

Istanbul Basaksehir finished fourth in Turkey’s top tier last term and booked their spot in the second qualifying round of the Europa Conference League. They beat Netanya and Breidablik to reach the play-offs. Basaksehir then got the better of Royal Antwerp over two legs.

Emre Belozoglu’s men have made a strong start to their 2022-23 Super Lig season, taking ten points from their opening four fixtures. Istanbul have beaten Kasimpasa, Kayserispor and Alanyaspor and drew with Konyaspor.
