Besiktas – Lyon Prediction & Preview and Betting Tips (20.04.2017)


Prediction for Besiktas – Lyon

More than 2,5 and both mark @ 1.75

Round of the Europa League quarter-finals facing Besiktas and Lyon.
Bet on “More than 2.5 goals and both score”.


After the 2-1 of the first leg, in which we saw a Besiktas planting face to Lyon and that paid dearly trying to maintain the result at the end of the match (next to the absurd error of the goalkeeper after the 1-1, who conceded a goal In a ridiculous way). The tie is completely open and this is something that should favor seeing goals in a tie in which already expected 2 games over in goals.

The truth is that I was expecting an Olympic Lyon to a higher level in the first leg but either by demerit of Lyon, Besiktas merit or a mixture of both, we found a result adjusted that was green thanks in large part to the error of the goalkeeper Of Besiktas after the 1-1, which gave the 2-1 final. The first part is what could have cost the match to Lyon, who came out very strong in the 2nd, demonstrating the offensive power and brazenness that has the French team.

Besiktas at home is a team with a global trend to Over 2.5. In league has 32 goals in favor and 10 against in 13 matches played (an average of 3.23 goals per game). In 8 of the 13 matches there were more than 2.5 and they scored both teams, being “over 2,5” other 2 games and under 3 of them (2 wins 1-0 and a tie to 1).

In the group stage of Champions won 3 draws as a local with the following results;
1-1 against Dynamo Kiev; 1-1 against Napoli; And 3-3 against Benfica
Before Dinamo and Benfica there were a number of chances of goal by both teams, while against Naples this had a large number of occasions but was only able to score 1 goal.
In the 2 rounds of the qualifying round that has played in the Europa League we found 2 green, one adjusted (2-1 before E. Hebe Beer Sheva, who won 1-3 in the first leg) and another left, 4-1 ante The Olympiacos (they were 1-1 in the first leg). I would like to emphasize that this 4-1 got it still playing with 1 player less since they were 2-1.

Besiktas concedes few goals in their league but we are talking about a lower level league than the French, where Lyon are capable of scoring enough goals. Also the positive part is that both teams have trouble keeping the goal at 0 in Europe. Besiktas have not achieved in their five home games and Lyon only managed to win against Dinamo Zagrev during the Champions League group stage, with both teams having an easy scoring goal (Besiktas scored in the 5 Matches and Lyon, once again, in 4 out of 5).


Lyon went from 58 goals in 16 home games to 46 in 16 away games (down from 3.62 goals to 2.87), but the average remains high. What essentially goes down is the number of goals that marks Lyon, since it fits practically the same.
In Champions, in spite of having parties with enough occasions, its 3 parties of the group phase outside of house were 3 Under. Nor should we forget that the O.Lyon is another since the beginning of the year, having witnessed several routinings consecutively. He has 7 Over 2.5 since March (9 games counting league and Europa League, being 2 reds 2 ties to 1, that is to say, red by the minimum) and has been 15 consecutive marking matches (having scored in 18 Of the 19 matches he has played in this 2017, including all competitions). Another point in favor is that he has conceded a goal in 16 of the 19 matches he has played since the New Year.

The style and situation of the tie invites the Over. Besiktas is certain that it is enough 1-0 to pass the round but, considering how offensive Lyon can be (despite being a team that can cost more to dominate the game away from home), this can To provoke that we see the goals that we need for both of them and that does not remain in an adjusted marker (being able to be our greater enemy the 1-1, it would surprise me very much that it finished with 1 or 0 goals the party).
