Burnley vs Basaksehir PREVIEW & PREDICTION 16/08/2018


Thursday, at 19:45, Burnley hopes to qualify for the UEFA Europa League play-off after meeting Istanbul Basaksehirspor in the second leg of the Preliminary Round 3. The tour was 0-0 in Turkey, because the host team missed many great opportunities. Burnley comes after two consecutive white draws, including the Southampton match (0-0).

Istanbul BB made a beautiful figure last season in the Europa League, but it is not a club just experienced in European Cups. The same can be said about Burnley, who finished 7th in the Premier League and is very enthusiastic about the matches in Europe. This time, however, Basaksehirspor’s quality could be said, because guests have well-known technical players such as Visca, Emre, Elia and Bajic. Arda Turan may be absent, but Burnley has medical problems with Defour, Pope, Brady and Kendrick.

16-2 was the ratio of sutures to the gate in the tour!

In Burnley’s gate will be Joe Hart, recently transferred, after the English made a good match with Southampton in the first round of the Premier League (0-0). Burnley got a fair draw on Sunday, while Istanbul BB comes in a 2-0 away with Trabzonspor on his own. Besides, Basaksehir looks good in this season start and only the bad luck made the Turkish team not win the tournament. Burnley fought desperately at certain times, and Sean Dyche’s team saw problems in the offensive. It’s possible that the Burnley attack level will increase when C. Wood or Vydra enters the field.

In the turn, Basaksehir had 16 sutures at the goal, but only two were drawn! Instead, Burnley did not have a goal on the hosts’ side, from the two modest attempts. The corners score was 10-1 for Basaksehir, and statistics were exclusively on the team’s smartest side. After finishing third in the championship in Turkey, Basaksehir hopes for a new presence in the UELs, and for that he needs a goal scored on Turf Moor in England. That’s what we’re gonna bet on Thursday night!

PREDICTION: Burnley to win @ 2.00
