Istanbul Basaksehir hosts Sporting Lisbon in the second leg of the Europa League 1/16 finals. The match will be played on Thursday, February 27th at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium (Istanbul)
After a good slap in the form of three goals conceded at Jose Alvalade, the Oranges will try to rectify the situation in the home arena in the province of Istanbul. The Turks have good chances, even despite the score, because current Basaksehir acts quite confidently at the home stadium. As for the last eight matches at Fatih Terim, Istanbul gained six victories and tied twice, and less than two goals were scored in only one match against a principal rival, Besiktas.

Portuguese Aristocrats come to Turkey with baggage of confidence. They have not lost for four consecutive matches in all competitions, and each of their games ended with at least two goals scored.
Despite the confident victory in the first leg, it is difficult to imagine that the men of Silas will come to exclusively preserve the result. The Portuguese were very convincing and deservedly dominated the first 90 minutes of this duel, so I expect at least one goal scored by them. For Turks, this is the first-ever match in the Europa League playoffs, so falling into dust in front of Turkish fans will not be appropriate. In my opinion, this pair has not yet been determined the winner, and the second match should turn out no worse than the game in Portugal.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 goals scored
