A win is essential for Sporting Lisbon 

Portuguese champions Sporting Lisbon had a crucial win in Istanbul by beating Besiktas 4-1. And to strengthen their position in group C, the Green and Whites need to repeat that win and maybe even push for a second position. Indeed, coach Ruben Amorim’s team have a fine run of victories having won their last four games at the Alvalade.

During all of their home matches this season, Sporting were able to score. Moreover, the Yellow and Greens have an average of over one goal scored per game. In the Portuguese League, Sporting are still undefeated but they couldn’t reflect this form in the UCL. Thus in order to keep their hopes alive for at least a Europa League qualification, Amorim’s team needs to beat Besiktas.

Besiktas facing a do or die situation

It hasn’t been a good season for Turkish champions Besiktas. The Black and Whites lost all three of their UCL matches and are fourth in the Turkish League with seven points off the pace from the top. Obviously, coach Sergen Yalcin’s team has defensive problems that need to be solved very soon. 

To illustrate, Besiktas have no clean sheets in any of their last ten matches. Furthermore, in their last ten games, Yalcin’s team conceded more goals than they scored on average, 2.1 to 1.5. Another key point is the fact that Besiktas are on a horrible away form losing during their last four trips. Therefore and as a last chance, Yalcin needs to find a way for his team to come up with a heroic performance.  

Sporting Lisbon vs Besiktas Prediction

Sporting Lisbon must not be overconfident in this match and lose the chance to take a firm grip of the third position. From then on, coach Amorim can think of pushing for second place. 

According to the bookies, Sporting are favorites to win with Vbet paying 1.49, and the stats for that show an 80% chance. Not to mention, Sporting are undefeated by Besiktas in three h2hs.

Moreover, all their previous matches saw both teams score and saw two or more goals scored. As a result, the chances for over 1.5 goals according to the stats is 70%. 

To conclude and considering all these stats and facts we think we will see goals in this game. But we don’t think it will be more than three goals because of the importance of the game and the tension that may arise because of it. Hence, we will back a double chance outcome combined with under 3.5 goals.
