Wolves Prediction – Can Wolves finish off in style?

Wolves have already booked their place in the knockout stage of the Europa League so Thursday night’s hosts will head into this Matchday 6 clash against Besiktas in confident and relaxed mood as they seek to extend their unbeaten record to 9 matches in all competitions.

It’s been a very successful campaign to date for the west midlands club as they occupy 2nd place in Group K but being just 1 point behind current leaders, Sporting Braga, there’s an opportunity for Wolves to finish top of the group when they take on bottom team, Besiktas at Molineux.

However, Wolves’s campaign didn’t start too well as they were handed a 1-0 loss at home by Braga, but a subsequent 4-match unbeaten run that included 3 wins and 1 draw saw Wolves stage an impressive comeback and claim a top two spot in the group with a match to spare.

Away wins at Besiktas and home and away victories over Slovan Bratislava saw Wolves move swiftly through the gears and they also grabbed a point in a 3-3 draw at Sporting Braga although Wolves blew a 2-goal lead when they were 3-1 up.

Besiktas Prediction – Can Besiktas avoid third away defeat on trot?

Bottom of Group K, Besiktas, have nothing left to play for but pride as they make their way over to the west midlands in England to take on Premier League side Wolves, who have made themselves a hard team to beat in recent times.

In contrast to their Thursday night’s hosts, Wolves, it’s been a disappointing campaign for Besiktas who sit bottom of the group after winning just 1 of their 5 matches in Group K and losing the other 4.

Defeats to Slovan Bratislava, Wolves and home and away losses to Sporting Braga sealed their fate at an early stage and although they recorded a 2-1 home win against Slovan Bratislava, it was a case of too little too late for the Turkish outfit as this victory turned out to be a mere consolation prize.

Overall results away from home have been disappointing too for Besiktas who have collected just 2 wins out of their last 10 matches on their travels in the Europa League and look to have their work cut out against Wolves on Thursday night.


Key-Facts – Wolves vs Besiktas

  • Wolves have won 4 of their 5 home ties in this season’s Europa League
  • Wolves are unbeaten in their last 7 matches at home in all competitions
  • Besiktas possess the joint third worst defensive record in all of the groups


Betting Tips Verdict

Wolves at Molineux are usually a tough prospect not least for a Besiktas side with a poor defensive record away from home.
