Return to this page a few days before the scheduled game when this expired prediction will be updated with our full preview and tips for the next match between these teams.
Beşiktaş will be at Medical Park Stadyumu on Sunday for the Süper Lig game with home side Trabzonspor.
Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Trabzonspor v Beşiktaş match are shown here (including the best match odds).
Trabzonspor, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 1-2 Süper Lig success over Kayserispor.
For Trabzonspor, goals were scored by Filip Novák (63') and Alexander Sørloth (95'). Pedro Henrique (86') scored for Kayserispor.
Matches featuring Trabzonspor have often been absorbing ones of late with plenty of scoring the rule rather than the exception. Over their past six games, a total of 23 goals have been recorded for both teams combined (at an average of 3.83 goals per game) with 12 of those belonging to Karadeniz Fırtınası.
After a losing effort in their last game against PAOK in UCL Qualifiers competition, Beşiktaş and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
Over the course of their last 6 outings, Beşiktaş have amassed a total of 11 goals. Kara Kartallar have also not failed to score in every single one of those games. In that time, their defenders have seen 8 goals go against them. Regardless, we’ll just have to find out if such a trend might continue on in this upcoming match.
Head to head
A review of their prior head to head meetings going back to 01/10/2017 tells us that Trabzonspor have won 2 of these games and Beşiktaş 1, with the number of drawn matches being 3.
There were also plenty of goals scored in those games, 22 in all at an average of 3.67 goals per meeting.
The last league fixture featuring these clubs was Süper Lig match day 23 on 22/02/2020 when it finished Beşiktaş 2-2 Trabzonspor.
The match was refereed by Firat Aydinus.
Team News: Trabzonspor
Bilal Basacikoglu (Fitness), Marlon (Hamstring Injury), Yusuf Sari (Unknown Injury), João Pereira (Torn Ligament) and Anders Trondsen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be able to play for Trabzon gaffer Hüseyin Çimşir.
In our view, Karadeniz Fırtınası will possibly use a 4-2-3-1 formation for the game featuring Ugurcan Cakir, Abdurrahim Dursun, Gastón Matías Campi, Hüseyin Türkmen, Kamil Ahmet Cörekci, Abdulkadir Parmak, Flávio, Anthony Nwakaeme, Guilherme Costa Marques, Abdulkadir Omur and Alexander Sörloth.
Team News: Beşiktaş
Out of a mainly healthy squad, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Beşiktaş boss Sergen Yalçın to be concerned with. Georges-Kevin N'Koudou (Thigh Muscle Strain) won’t be playing here. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Douglas, Muhayer Oktay, Nicolas Isimat-Mirin and Francisco Montero.
From our viewpoint, Kara Kartallar seem most likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 lineup by sending out Ersin Destanoğlu, Necip Uysal, Francisco Montero, Domagoj Vida, Fabrice N'Sakala, Dorukhan Tokoz, Atiba Hutchinson, Jeremain Lens, Bernard Mensah, Tyler Boyd and Güven Yalcin.
We’ve got the feeling that Trabzonspor should have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
At the same time, Beşiktaş are also probably going to find it difficult to find the back of the net but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be managing to get on the scoresheet.
We’re therefore expecting to see a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning score for Trabzonspor at the end of the 90 minutes.
