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!

Champions League Football Predictions And Betting Tips
Porto – Leicester is one of the most interesting games of this week’s Champions League, for a wide variety of reasons, almost none of which relate to the English Champions. Leicester have qualified and are doing badly in their domestic league, which opens the door to Porto to do what’s required of them and qualify from the group as well – but will they be able to capitalize? Porto vs Leicester City – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Porto 1.35 or 7/20 Draw 5.25 or 17/4 Leicester City 11.00 or 10/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.85 or 17/20 Under 1.95 or 19/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.25 or 5/4 No 1.57 or 4/7 Porto can qualify in only…
Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow. The two teams haven’t been up to their normal standards of quality in the CL so far, but surely want to play European soccer – even if it is in the Europa League. Tottenham have a slight advantage, but will it prove to be enough? Tottenham vs CSKA Mosow – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Tottenham 1.53 or 8/15 Draw 4.33 or 10/3 CSKA Moscow 7.00 or 6/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.95 or 19/20 No 1.80 or 4/5 Actually, the Spurs have a few advantages on their…
Group H is one of the interesting ones for this week. Although Juventus and Sevilla are more or less sure of their qualification places, they still need to figure out who will win the group. While Sevilla has a very hard game against Lyon, Juventus are hosting the weakest team of the group stage, Dinamo Zagreb. A win would ensure first place – can they get it? Juventus vs Dinamo Zagreb – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Juventus 1.12 or 1/8 Draw 10.00 or 9/1 Dinamo 26.00 or 25/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.44 or 4/9 Under 2.70 or 17/10 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.62 or 13/8 No 1.44 or 4/9 Our analysis tells us that Juventus should…
The last day of the Champions League group stage is one of the hardest to predict. Teams are either qualified and have no desire to field their best eleven, or are clinging to the last chance to play European football in spring as well. Sadly for the spectacle of the CL, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified before their direct game and are both sure of their positions in the group. Bayer vs Monaco – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Bayer 1.80 or 4/5 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Monaco 4.75 or 15/4 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.75 or 3/4 Under 2.05 or 21/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.70 or 7/10 No 2.05 or 21/20 Monaco is one…
Group F of the Champions League features some very interesting games this week. We can see a clash between Dortmund and Real Madrid, which will decide the leader of the group, and a game for 3rd place, between Sporting Lisbon and Legia Warsaw – which is much harder to predict that it looks on paper. Legia Warsaw vs Sporting Lisbon – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Legia 4.60 or 18/5 Draw 3.90 or 29/10 Sporting 1.80 or 4/5 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.65 or 13/20 Under 2.20 or 6/5 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.61 or 8/13 No 2.20 or 6/5 We’re saying it’s hard to predict because Legia has shown they are capable of playing good football, especially…
