Besiktas was, at some point in their recent past, an almost permanent presence in the Champions League group stages. They haven’t featured in quite some time, and are now back, even managing some good results.
Will their luck and good continental form end with their travel in Italy, where they face Napoli, a team famous for the great results they obtain at home?
Napoli vs Besiktas – 19/10/2016
Betting Odds: Napoli 1.44 or 4/9 Draw 4.75 or 15/4 Besiktas 8.50 or 15/2
After a great start of the season, Napoli has now suffered two straight defeats, one more surprising that the other. They lost away against Atalanta, a much weaker side, than at home against Roma.
The result wasn’t the most surprising thing, but the manner in which they’ve lost was very disappointing – Roma completely dominated the game.
They will quickly want to win their fans back, and a victory against Besiktas will at least cure some wounds. Adding 3 more points to their current tally will bring them very close to qualification – meaning that they can focus on the Serie A with ease.
Sadly for them, Besiktas are not exactly weak opposition. The team is undefeated so far in all competitions this season and drew both their games in the CL so far with the same score: 1-1. They are the typical Turkish squad – strong, disciplined and ambitious, and it’s hard for any team to defeat them.
They don’t particularly impress in attack, but their defensive work is really great. With Napoli missing their main attacking threat (Milik), the Turks actually have a good chance to return home with a point or points.
Napoli vs Besiktas Betting Tips
That being said, we do however favor the home team to do well. We don’t expect a large victory, but 1-0 or 2-1 are definite possibilities.
We don’t expect lots of goals in the game, a maximum of 2 or 3 – while we do expect yellow cards. At least 3 or 4, with more on the visiting side. Good luck!
