Hapoel Beer Sheva vs Besiktas Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Hapoel Beer Sheva will be looking to continue their European adventure when they welcome Besiktas at the Yaakov Turner Toto Stadium on Thursday night in the first leg of their Europa League round of 32 tie. Hapoel Beer Sheva fought back from one-goal down to secure a 2-1 home win over Ashkelon last time out in Ligat ha’Al thanks to a brace from Alinib Breda. On the flip side, Besiktas were beaten 2-1 on the road at Kardemir Karabuk in the Turkish Super Lig, with their consolation goal being scored by substitute Vincent Aboubakar. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Hapoel Beer Sheva Preview

Hapoel Beer Sheva have struggled a little bit in the Ligat ha’Al over the past few weeks, but they still sit on top of the league table with 49 points after 22 rounds, five points clear of the second-placed Maccabi Tel Aviv. Hapoel Beer Sheva looked very well-organized at both ends of the field throughout their Ligat ha’Al campaign, having scored 48 goals in 22 league games while conceding just 12 in the process. Due to their recent poor run of form, Hapoel Beer Sheva were knocked-out from the State Cup following a disappointing 1-2 home defeat at the hands of mid-table dwellers Ironi Kiryat Shmona. Regarding their European adventure this season, Hapoel Beer Sheva have battled all the way through from Champions League second qualifying round to reach this stage of the Europa League. The Israeli side finished second in the Europa League group K table tied on 8 points with the 3rd-placed Southampton, but they had the better results over the English team. This is by far their most successful European campaign, and this is the first springtime European game. Hapoel Beer Sheva can count on their home form ahead of this tie, as they have lost only one of their last eight European home outings, a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Sparta Prague in this season’s group stage.

Besiktas Preview

Besiktas, on the other hand, have also struggled for fluency in this early part of 2017, but they kicked off February in a disappointing manner. They enter the fray on the back of two consecutive defeats at the hands of Fenerbahce in the Turkish Cup and against Kardemir Karabuk last time out in the Super Lig. Despite the recent struggle, the Black Eagles still sit on top of the Super Lig table with 44 points under their belts after 20 rounds, two points clear off the 2nd-placed Basaksehir. Besiktas are the division’s topscorers with 40 goals after 20 league games, including 15 from their main striker Cenk Tosun. Their away form over the past three months has been a complete mixed bag with four wins, three defeats and three draws in their last ten away games across all competitions. Regarding their European adventure this season, Besiktas were knocked out from the Champions League group stage, as they finished only in third in the group B table. They missed the chance to qualify for the Champions League round of 16 in the final group fixture when they suffered a heavy 6-0 defeat at the hands of Dynamo Kiev. Apart from that heavy loss, Besiktas managed a 2-3 victory at Napoli and a 1-1 away draw at Benfica in their other two away European fixtures.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Hapoel Beer Sheva have been incredibly strong on home soil over the past four months, having lost just once in their last 14 home fixtures across all competitions. On the contrary, Besiktas have struggled on the road over the past few months, but they still managed to get on the scoresheet in eight of their last ten away games in all competitions. I’m expecting an open game with goals at both ends of the field.
