Besiktas defends lead

Besiktas Istanbul goes with a relatively calming lead in the return of the round of the last 32 in the Europa League. Opponent Hapoel Beer Sheva from Israel has probably not given up, but a move out in Istanbul will be more than difficult. The kick-off of the meeting is on 23 February at 7 pm.


For the first time, the Turkish top club in the Champions League rallied for the first time in the last 16. In the end, however, you had to be satisfied with the “consolation plaster” Europa League. However, Besiktas does not seem to have been happy with the changeover. In the first leg in Israel, three goals were scored, a fact that makes the club responsible for sleeping peacefully. Especially since in the league everything runs smoothly, the team of Senol Günes meanwhile four points before the first pursuer Basaksehir lies and showed itself lastly enormously focussed. The dress rehearsal for the return was won against Akhirsaspor 3: 1. Striker Cenk Tosun scored already the 16th time in the 23rd season of the season in the Süper Lig. Accordingly, he is also on Thursday to provide the necessary goals. In all, he and his team colleagues won six of the last eight Ligaspiele, but the remaining two were lost. However, these defeats also had an effect, but the victories always followed sovereign victories. Even an early conceding goal should therefore not worry the team on Thursday, the Günes Elf is very solid at the moment. In addition, the Vodafone Arena in Istanbul is a real cauldron, fans of the table leader are considered one of the most talented appendices in Europe. In addition, the home of the Turks reads almost impeccably. In the league, they celebrated eight victories in 10 games and also recorded two draws. Even in the Champions League you stayed in three home group games without defeat, but could not choose a single Heimmatch for themselves. Imposing: Only in a duel in front of their own audience did Besiktas stay this season without goal, namely, at the beginning of February at the Cup-break against Fenerbahce Istanbul. However, on Thursday with Mitrovic, Erkin, Quresma and Ba are four important pillars. How these failures can be compensated for will probably be a decisive factor in the question of the possible rise.

Hapoel Beer Sheva

Only the market value comparison leaves little to ask for the favorite role. Israeli agent Hapoel Beer Sheva’s line-up is only slightly more than a tenth of the total market value of the opponent. Beer Sheva has his strengths in the reversal and counter-play, which is certainly not a disadvantage for the difficult match in Istanbul. Even in the first game had already with much less possession of the ball more opportunities than the opponent, but lacked before the goal at the necessary coldness. This may not be due to the missing experience of the squad. While Besiktas can offer a wide range of players who have already played Champions and Europa League, Beer Sheva is hardly the case. In the domestic championship, Beer Sheva is similar to the opponent from Turkey. The team of Barak Bakhar is currently leading the table with three points ahead. However, last weekend they had to contend with a 0-0 draw against Hapoel Haifa. The defeat in the home game is, however, even more bitter for Beersheva, especially as one could make in this much greater hopes of a victory. Beesheva is considered to be enormously strong in the home, while in the foreign country they are always in trouble. Thus, the Bakhar elf lost all the defeats of the league season in away games. What the team is capable of, however, showed the group stage of the Europa League. In this, no one less than Inter Milan in the San Siro 2-0 defeated. A result that would suffice on Thursday for the ascent. Positive: Contrary to Besiktas, the Israeli league leaders can fall back on his entire squad.

Betting Besiktas and Hapoel Beer Sheva

An away game in Istanbul has already created quite a few difficulties for quite different teams. There will be no “second Milan” in our opinion. Rather, we expect the Senol Günes team to show off their best side in front of their own fans. Our game tip: Tip 1.
