In Istanbul there is another battle this week in Europe, this time things will move to Vodafone Park where Besiktas receives the visit of the Portuguese from Braga at 7:55 pm in the group K.
◾️Much too weak the black and white lineup this season both domestically and at European level, failing to function in any form, losing countless points that will count at a time when you may manage to wake up.
◾️12th place for the blacks in the championship with only 9 points won in 8 games, thus winning only 2 games, which is quite difficult to imagine.
◾️The situation is even worse in the group of UEL where Besiktas did not collect any points in the two games, losing with Wolves, score 0-1, and Slovan Bratislava, score 2-4.
◾️A move that is announced extremely difficult by the prism of the stadium and Turkish fans that will surely create an atmosphere that will push the host team, but the Portuguese game looks very good this season.
◾️Although the championship is only on the 11th place with 8 points, quite a bit if we were thinking that this was not the usual guest formation this evening, things are more concentrated at European level where Braga seems to be in charge.
◾️After unexpectedly defeating Wolves, 1-0, the Portuguese drew a spectacular score of 2-2 in front of Slovan Bratislava.
◾️Lately he has collected 3 consecutive victories in the cups beaten in Portugal, scoring 8 times.
▪️The two met in the sixteenth UEL of the 2011/2012 season where Besiktas managed to prevail at that time with 2-1 overall.

Football Prediction of the Day Besiktas vs Braga
No point after 2 games, Besiktas is absolutely obliged to win in this game. But he will face a very good opponent, so the match is open to any result. However I expect a tense match and I bet at least 5 warnings.
It is clear that the Turks will enter very motivated and I am sure they will not threaten their opponents at all. At the same time, however, Braga is a team that is not on the side when it comes to fighting.
In both matches played by the Portuguese I had at least 5 warnings.
Referee will be the Spanish Alejandro Hernandez, who is in the first European match refereed this season. In general, the Spanish referees give many cards in the Champions League and Europa League, but obviously the match must be a tense one, as I think it will be in Istanbul.
