It’s crazy to think that Basaksehir were crowned the 2019/20 champions of Turkey considering they lost four consecutive matches right at the beginning of the season.

Team news | League Table | Odds

The Istanbul side were beaten home and away by Olympiakos in the Champions League before suffering Super League defeats against Malatyaspor and Fenerbahce, with the team quickly regrouping to get back into contention.

In the end, Okan Buruk’s team won the championship by four points, with their latest match taking place on Sunday 26 July which means that they now have plenty of time to prepare for their Europa League last sixteen clash in Denmark.

Similarly, FC Copenhagen’s season also ended on the same date, although they wound up in second place and a full fourteen points behind champions Midtjylland, with FCK having previously beaten Scottish champions Celtic en route to the last sixteen stage of this European competition.

The first leg clash in Istanbul was a tight affair and our prediction is that there will be no quarter given in this clash, with the betting odds fairly generous when it comes to punting on two goals or less.

Istanbul Basaksehir have a lead to protect and so a goalless draw would be a satisfactory outcome for them, while the home side have to balance the temptation to go on the attack with the possibility of conceding a goal which would mean three goals would have to be scored.

Therefore, our tip is for Under 2.5 Goals to be scored during the ninety minutes. There’s a huge carrot for the winner of this tie who will go through to the last eight stage and line up against English Premier League club Manchester United.

The first leg encounter nearly finished in a goalless draw and there’s an argument for betting on Under 1.5 Goals for those who want to be braver with their punting, although we’ll stick with the Under 2.5 Goals on this front.
