Besiktas vs Sivasspor PREVIEW & PREDICTION 19/05/2018


Besiktas can no longer become champion, but can still win the Champions League. For that, it must at least win itself. Do they know how to take the three points from Sivassspor at home?


In 2018 the Black and White people only went down twice. First they lost 1-0 to Basaksehir and then lost, again, 2-0 to Galatasaray. These defeats have done Besiktas the badger. Besiktas is now in fourth place. The second place, and a Champions League ticket, is still the highest possible for the Black & White. For that it has to win itself and the competitors have to ignore points.

Beyond the defeats, Besiktas actually played well. Last year they also managed to win 3-2 against Osmanlispor. Besiktas started a weak game, but managed to improve his performance in the second half. Coach Senol Gunes thought his team could play better: “We played dramatically the first half. We were better in the second half, but we still made a lot of mistakes. ‘

The Black eagles do miss a lot of players. The rag basket is packed. There are a lot of midfielders and defenders absent. Alvaro Negredo is also injured. The absence of Negredo will mainly ensure that they will be less strong offensively.


Sivasspor has a good season behind. The PhD student is in seventh position. After a small dip they are now recovering. The Yigidolar caught eight points in their last four games. Last time they played 2-2 draw against low flyer Alanyaspor.

Coach Samet Aybaba was satisfied with his team: ’49 points as a PhD student, that is certainly a good achievement and I am very satisfied with my players. We play well especially at home. ‘

The brave are currently four games unbeaten and do it especially in home games well this season. They only lost four times for their own audience. In away games, something worse is performed. They lost eight away games.

PREDICTION: Over 3.5 goals @ 1.95
