Basaksehir stayed unbeaten in their seven recent battles of the season, namely since the 1st of April. The team is fighting with Besiktas for the champion’s title in the Turkish Super Lig in this season and it is definitely won’t finish at a place lower than the second one. Regarding the Turkish Cup, Basaksehir have won their group with 14 points taken and 11-2 goal difference, then in the Play Offs knocked out Galatasaray 2:1 and AkhisarGenclikSpor1:1, 2:0 followed by2:2 draw in the first-leg match vs. Fenerbahce. In 2017 Basaksehir conducted nine clashes on the road resulting in four victories, two draws and three defeats.
The teams met three times in this season swopping by the home victories with the same 1:0 scoreline in favour of each rival alongside with 2:2 draw. I believe that scoring draw in the first-leg game was an exception while a number of goals combined by the opponents should not be expected in the second-leg clash.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
