The Super Lig meeting at Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Stadyumu on Sunday sees home side Kasimpasa take on Beşiktaş.
Our Kasimpasa v Beşiktaş tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below including the latest game odds.
Kasimpasa won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 2-1 Super Lig defeat in their last game at the hands of Gençlerbirliği.
In that match, Kasimpasa managed 71% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 7 on target. The only player to score for Kasimpasa was Yusuf Erdoğan (66'). Gençlerbirliği got 8 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Sefa Yılmaz (60', 76') scored for Gençlerbirliği.
It has been seldom in recent times where Kasimpasa haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Apaçiler have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 9 goals in the process.
Their prior results show that Kasimpasa:
- have not won against Beşiktaş in their previous 4 matches in the league.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 league games.
Previously, Beşiktaş drew 1-1 in the Super Lig match with Fenerbahçe.
In that game, Beşiktaş managed 56% possession and 14 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. The only player to score for Beşiktaş was Domagoj Vida (48'). Fenerbahçe had 13 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Ozan Tufan (89') was the scorer for Fenerbahçe.
In their last 6 clashes, Beşiktaş have bagged a total of 13 goals. Kara Kartallar have also not failed to score in every single one of those games. During those fixtures, their defenders have had 4 goals go against them. With no two games being the same, we must now wait to see if the trend will persist in this game.
Coming into this contest, Beşiktaş have not been beaten in their last 8 away league matches. What an impressive run of results.
Head to head
Looking at their prior head to head clashes dating back to 26/01/2018 tells us that Kasimpasa have won 1 of them & Beşiktaş 5, with the number of drawn games standing at 0.
There were also goals galore in those games, with 26 in all at an average of 4.33 goals per meeting.
The last league encounter featuring the two was Super Lig match day 11 on 04/12/2020 which finished with the scoreline of Beşiktaş 3-0 Kasimpasa.
The referee was Bahattin Şimşek.
Team News: Kasimpasa
Yusuf Erdogan (Unknown Injury), Julian Jeanvier (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Armin Hodzic (Unknown Injury) won’t be able to feature for Kasımpaşa gaffer Şenol Can. Gerard Gohou cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: Beşiktaş
Beşiktaş manager Sergen Yalçın has to choose a team with limited availability. Dorukhan Toköz (Corona virus), Cenk Tosun (Corona virus), Bernard Mensah (Injury to the ankle), Vincent Aboubakar (Thigh Muscle Strain) and Ajdin Hasic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are those who can’t be considered. Ineligible players who cannot play in this game through suspension are Rachid Ghezzal and Muhayer Oktay.
In our view, Kasimpasa must be fancied to get a goal against this Beşiktaş outfit, but one goal possibly won’t be enough to give them the result that they want.
We therefore reckon that it will be a close game with a 1-2 winning margin for Beşiktaş at the end of the match. Should be a good one.
