Slovan Bratislava and Beşiktaş measure strength, in a match for this phase of the UEFA Europa League (Group Stage). This will be the first direct confrontation between these two teams, since they have never faced each other before.
Slovan Bratislava :
The home team won access to this group stage, after in the previous tie they had eliminated the PAOK, after a defeat out by (3-2) and a home victory by (1‑0). The team arrives at this match after a home victory with Spartak Trnava by (2‑0). In the last 10 games played at home for all competitions, Slovan Bratislava won 8 and drew 2. His attack has scored regularly, as he always scored at least one goal in the last 6 games for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 24 of the last 26 matches have ended with Over 1.5 goals and 17 out of 26 have ended with Over 2.5 goals. This is a team that usually scores many times first: he opened the scoring in 15 of his last 15 games, of these 15 he came to rest in advantage in 11 and managed to maintain the advantage until the end of the 90 ‘in 11.
At least in theory, Slovan Bratislava had no luck, since he is in a group in which the other clubs have more quality. The tendency is to be in the last place, however, it is this tendency that wants to change. The team hopes to surprise as often as possible and will take advantage of being in the first round to achieve a favorable result. Of course, this will not be easy, but it will use all the necessary means to achieve a victory. In this match, the best players available will be on the field.
The visiting team had direct access to this group stage, so they will play their first game in this edition of the competition. In the last match he played, for the Süper Lig, he lost with Gaziantep BB out by (3-2). In its last 10 away matches, Beşiktaş records 5 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses. His defense has not been very solid, since he suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 games. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 19 of their last 21 matches have ended with Over 1.5 goals and 14 in 21 have ended with Over 2.5 goals. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 8 times and only got 1 comeback. There is 1 period that stands out in the last 20 away matches for all competitions: he scored 15 of his 39 goals between minutes (76′ ‑ 90 ‘).
Despite being aware of the balance in his group, Besiktas does not want to give opportunities to rivals. The Turkish team comes to fight for first place and if they play their best football they know they can do it. Despite playing away from his domains he comes to seek a victory and carries with him favoritism in relation to the conquest of the three points. Therefore, we must see a team with a lot of attitude and always looking for the best, because it has objectives to meet. In this match, the best players available will be on the field.
