On Monday, there is a very limited betting offer, and this time we have analyzed one of the most interesting matches of the 18th round of the Turkish Super League, where Hatayspor will host Beşiktaş at their stadium. The match between these two teams is scheduled to start at 18:00.
Hatayspor: Quite good performances at home!
Hatayspor was founded in 1967, and until now, this team has not achieved any significant results. It was only in 2020 that this team reached its first placement in the top tier of Turkish football, where it has remained to this day. Of course, due to the catastrophic earthquakes that hit this city, the leaders of the Turkish Super League decided to exempt Hatayspor and Gaziantep from relegation. Certainly, with the start of the new season of the Turkish Super League, the primary goal is again survival among the best, and if things are viewed in this way, it is certain that all fans of this charming team have quite a few reasons to be satisfied.
At this moment, their favorite team is in the middle of the table, precisely in the eleventh position, however, with only a two-point advantage over the teams in the relegation zone. So far, Hatayspor has played sixteen matches in the top tier of Turkish football and achieved four victories, as many as seven draws, but also five losses. In the last round, Volkan Demirel’s team drew in an away match against Ankaragücü, a duel that ended goalless, with a note that the host had a goal disallowed after a VAR intervention, and a missed penalty, so the impression is that the guests can be more than satisfied with the point shared.
Before that, the club from the city most affected by the earthquake played a weak match in an away game against Başakşehir, which celebrated a 1:0 victory in that duel. In the last five matches, Hatayspor has achieved only one victory, with two draws and as many losses. Regarding performances at home, coach Demirel’s team has so far experienced only one defeat at their stadium, and that was against Kayserispor with a score of 1:2. Besides that, this team has achieved three victories and the same number of draws, with the note that Hatayspor is the only team that has defeated Galatasaray in the current championship, in a match that ended with a 2:1 result.
Beşiktaş: The Eagles want to break their bad streak!
Beşiktaş is among the most trophy-laden Turkish clubs, having won the Turkish championship sixteen times, with the last victory occurring two years ago. In that season, the popular Eagles finished first on the table with the same number of points as the runner-up Galatasaray, and two points more than the third-placed Fenerbahçe. It was one of the most thrilling editions of the Turkish Super League in the last twenty years, ultimately decided by Beşiktaş’s better goal difference than the Istanbul giants.
In addition to their sixteen league titles, the Eagles have won the Turkish Cup ten times and the Turkish Super Cup nine times. Last season was solid, as the Istanbul team finished third in the table, just two points behind the second-placed Fenerbahçe. This placement earned Beşiktaş a spot in the Conference League. Speaking of this third-tier European club competition, it’s worth noting that Beşiktaş ultimately finished third in their group, meaning they will not be seen in the knockout phase, which was one of their primary goals for this part of the season.
So far, the Black and Whites have played sixteen matches in the Turkish championship, achieving eight victories, two draws, and as many as six losses, which is certainly too many for a club aiming to finish in the top three by the end of the season. Currently, the popular Eagles are in fifth place on the table, three points behind the fourth-placed Kayserispor. However, Beşiktaş has played one more match, so a victory in their challenging away game against Hatayspor could bring them back to the fourth position.
In the last round, the Istanbul team was somewhat unexpectedly defeated at their home stadium by Alanyaspor, with the match ending 1:3. This was their third consecutive league match without a win. Finally, in away games, the former Turkish champions have played eight matches, securing three victories, one draw, and suffering four defeats.
Our Betting Suggestions
If we take a look back at a few of the previous head-to-head matches between these two teams, we see that they are generally encounters with a high number of goals. For instance, just two years ago, the Eagles demolished Hatayspor 7:0 at their home stadium. It seems that we can expect another match with many goals, so we primarily recommend trying the over 2.5 goals bet, for which Mozzartbet has prepared an odds of 1.75.
We have already mentioned that Hatayspor plays quite well at their home stadium this season, where they have suffered only one defeat so far. It really seems that this team will not lose in this upcoming match against the recently poorly performing Beşiktaş team, so we advise you to try the double chance 1X bet, which Mozzartbet offers at an odds of 1.55.
Finally, Hatayspor recently managed to defeat the current champions, Galatasaray, with a 2:1 score at their home ground. This means that this charming team respects no one at their stadium, so we boldly advise you to go for a home win (fr 1) for Hatayspor, all with an odds of 2.95 at Mozzartbet.
