Sivasspor – Besiktas Prediction & Picks (22.04.2019)


Sivasspor – Besiktas SOCCER PICKS

The “black eagle” start to fly high. After a mixed season Besiktas Istanbul will be back at the end of the season for the lucrative Champions League starting place. Only three points separate Besiktas from Galatasaray, who are currently in second place in the table. In two weeks, the derby rises between the traditional clubs, where Besiktas can equalize in the six-point match against the Turkish record champions. Until then, the current Siegestrend should be maintained. However, Sivasspor will not be a pleasant opponent for Besiktas, especially as the hosts have not yet checked off the topic of relegation.

If Sivasspor wins against Besiktas, a corresponding tip will be rewarded with odds of 3.80. The guests were able to win the city derby against Basaksehir on the last match day and travel in a very strong form to Sivas. We appreciate our Sivasspor Vs. Besiktas forecast the guests therefore also in better condition. Senol Günes will leave the team at the end of the season, so why not a conciliatory season finish as runner-up? Two weeks before the derby against Galatasaray Besiktas may not allow a dropout, otherwise the Champions League hopes quickly fizzle out again. Monday night the duel between Sivasspor and Besiktas increases at 18:00!


After the upswing under Hakan Keles it went for Sivasspor last downhill again. Currently, Sivasspor has an advantage of eight points on a relegation zone. In upcoming games against Besiktas, Basaksehir and Galatasaray the issue of league is not yet ticked off. In the last seven Süper Lig games Sivasspor has won only once. Most recently, the Keles-Eleven took an important point in Konya. At home, Sivasspor will have to go above and beyond to really take points against the formidable traditional club from Istanbul. With a home record of 6-5-3, only the home games against Kasimpasa, Antalyaspor and Kayserispor were lost this season. Sivasspor became an uncomfortable obstacle for the top clubs this season; So already had clubs like Basaksehir, Fenerbahce, Trabzonspor and Besiktas points against the Anatolian club lie. At home, the Anatolian club will be in demand in the rest program again. Sivasspor has always scored at least one goal in their last eight home games. In seven of the 14 home games Sivas could hold the zero.

With ten goals, Arouna Kone leads the internal scoring list. The Sivas striker has repeatedly struggled with injury worries over the course of the season. Since the departure of Robinho, Kone plays again a crucial role in the offensive of Sivasspor, even if the 35-year-old recently acted more as a joker. In the match against Besiktas, Hakan Keles will have to relinquish his midfielder Özer Hurmaci suspended. Hugo Vieira will be injured due to injury. As in the first half of the season, Sivasspor will be waiting for Besiktas to face their counter-chances. If players like Kilinc and Douglas catch a good day on the wings, the Anatolian club will be an uncomfortable obstacle.


The season actually seemed to have run for the “black eagle”. Besiktas has fought back and now hopes for a Champions League starting place. With six more games to go, the “black eagle” has it in its own hands. The gap to Galatasaray is three points, the two traditional clubs meet in a six-point match in a few weeks. Until then, the team of Senol Günes can afford no loss of points and must continue the victory triumph of the past four games. Most recently, Besiktas won the derby against championship leader Basaksehir. With 60 goals Besiktas behind Galatasaray possesses the strongest offensive of the Süper Lig. However, the defensive performance of the “black eagle” was not very convincing with 37 goals. So far, Besiktas has been able to build a record of 6-5-3 on foreign territory. Since the away loss to Kasimpasa, Besiktas have won four of their last five away games and played once in a draw. It was with a 7-2 victory over Rizespor and a 6-2 win over Antalyaspor convincing performances, even if the results do not really reflect the performance of the third in the table. Dominant performances did not exist, only the chance exploitation was outstanding. With the recent success experiences in the luggage Besiktas but also want to get the home strong team from Sivas the three points.

It was not foreseeable that Besiktas will turn up again after so many departures at the end of the season. The latest form wants to continue the third in the table and hopes for a Champions League starting place at the end of the season. With eight goals in ten appearances, Burak Yilmaz leads the internal scoring list. Adem Ljajic was able to increase his scorer points account when last two goals and three assists against Rizespor were booked. Meanwhile, top scorer Ricardo Quaresma continues to cure an injury and is not available to Günes. However, the Portuguese is already fancying a retirement in the summer, so it remains to be seen whether “Q7” will be used again this season. Caner Erkin will miss the away game in Sivas due to a suspension. Further failures are on the side of the “black eagle” not to complain. If the odds should be as optimal as in the games before, should be true for Sivasspor against Besiktas a forecast in favor of the guests.
