Our Beşiktaş v Hatayspor predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (inc. the best betting odds).
Beşiktaş will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 2-3 Super Lig success vs Çaykur Rizespor.
In that game, Beşiktaş had 54% possession and 16 attempts on goal with 9 on target. For Beşiktaş, goals were scored by Georges-Kévin Nkoudou (16'), Gökhan Töre (57') and Rachid Ghezzal (75'). Çaykur Rizespor had 8 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. İsmail Köybaşı (87') and Damjan Đoković (89') scored for Çaykur Rizespor.
Fixtures with Beşiktaş have proved to be exciting encounters lately with plenty of scoring being a real hallmark. Over their past 6 clashes alone, the sum of 22 goals have been scored for both teams combined (at an average of 3.67 goals per game) with 15 of these being chalked up by Kara Kartallar.
Ahead of this meeting, Beşiktaş are unbeaten in their last 7 league matches at home.
Hatayspor will go into the game following on from a 3-1 Super Lig win as they beat Gençlerbirliği in their previous game.
In that game, Hatayspor managed 49% possession and 16 shots on goal with 9 on target. For Hatayspor, the goalscorers were Rayane Aabid (9') and Mame Biram Diouf (51', 84'). Gençlerbirliği got 18 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Robert Piris Da Motta (78') scored for Gençlerbirliği.
The stats don’t lie, and Hatayspor have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 8 goals overall. At the back, Hatayspor have seen their frailties exposed. That kind of trend isn’t assured to follow through into this game, though.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Hatayspor:
- are unbeaten in their previous 2 away league matches.
- are without a win away from home in their last 5 matches in the league.
