The Süper Lig clash at Vodafone Park on Friday sees hosts Beşiktaş
take on Konyaspor
. Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Beşiktaş v Konyaspor match are shown here (including the best match odds).
Beşiktaş will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 1-5 Süper Lig triumph vs Denizlispor. For Beşiktaş, the goalscorers were Burak Yılmaz (10'), Gökhan Gönül (60'), Georges-Kévin Nkoudou (67'), Adem Ljajić (75') and Abdoulay Diaby (78'). Óscar Estupiñán (53') was the scorer for Denizlispor.
Kara Kartallar have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets of late, although they’ve also found ways to hit the back of the net themselves. Analysis of their previous 6 games shows that Kara Kartallar have conceded in 5 of them as well as getting on the scoresheet in 5 of those matches.
Coming into this fixture, Beşiktaş are unbeaten in the league by Konyaspor in their previous 7 matches.
In their previous game, Konyaspor drew 2-2 in the Süper Lig match with Sivasspor. For Konyaspor, the goalscorers were Nejc Skubic (37') and Deni Milošević (44'). Arouna Koné (30') and Petar Škuletić (90') scored for Sivasspor.
Bulent Korkmaz's Konyaspor have fired home 7 times throughout their latest six matches. The overall goals that they have conceded during those matches comes to 7.
Their prior results show that Konyaspor:
- haven't beaten Beşiktaş when they've played them away from home in the last 4 matches in the league. They'll be keen to stop this run.
- are without an away win for the past 4 league games.
Head to head
An inspection of their past head to head meetings going back to 30/01/2017 shows that these fixtures have been disappointments for Konyaspor. They have not managed to get any victories at all while Beşiktaş have simply been better than them, beating them in 67% of those matches.
A combined sum of 20 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 14 from Kara Kartallar and 6 netted by Konyaspor. That’s an average goals per game figure of 3.33.
The last league match featuring these clubs was Süper Lig match day 12 on 23/11/2019 and the score finished Konyaspor 0-1 Beşiktaş. The referee was Firat Aydinus.
Team News: Beşiktaş
Kevin-Prince Boateng (Achilles tendon problems), Dorukhan Toköz (Fitness), Domagoj Vida (Hamstring Injury) and Douglas (Thigh muscle rupture) will not be able to play for Beşiktaş boss Sergen Yalçın.
We think that Kara Kartallar should employ a 4-2-3-1 formation for this game, utilising Dogukan Ozkan, Rıdvan Yılmaz, Enzo Roco, Víctor Ruiz Torre, Gökhan Gönül, Mohamed Elneny, Atiba Hutchinson, Georges-Kevin N'Koudou, Adem Ljajic, Jeremain Lens and Kartal Yilmaz.
Team News: Konyaspor
In an otherwise available squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Konyaspor boss Bulent Korkmaz to contend with. Paolo Hurtado (Strain) won’t be in action.
We’re of the thinking that Konyaspor will likely begin the game with a 4-1-4-1 lineup with a starting lineup of Serkan Kirintili, Nejc Skubic, Ugur Demirok, Marin Anicic, Guilherme Haubert, Jens Jønsson, Ömer Ali Sahiner, Amir Hadziahmetovic, Deni Milosevic, Levan Shengelia and Riad Bajic.
We believe that Beşiktaş will most probably be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target. At the other end, Konyaspor could well find it tough getting on the scoresheet although we do think that they will probably end up converting at least once here, too. We’re predicting a decent 3-1 winning score for Beşiktaş by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
