Tip Besiktas Istanbul - Borussia Dortmund

Besiktas Istanbul Borussia Dortmund Prediction published on September 13, 2021 at 6:58 PM - modifiedat September 13, 2021 at 7:03 PM

Besiktas are back to the Champions League group stages after last season’s disappointment in the elimination at the qualification stage, and this time they’ll want to make it count. They host German side Borussia Dortmund on Match Day 1 in Group C and eye a flying start, after a good start in the Super Lig. Besiktas are unbeaten in their last six matches excluding friendly games, and have four straight clean sheets ahead of this clash. They have scored in 10 of their last 11 competitive matches, and will need to devise a means to handle Dortmund’s rampant attack. The hosts are coming from a 3-0 win over Yeni Malatyaspor, a game in which Michy Batshuayi scored a brace, and will hope for an improved performance in the Champions League. Besiktas go to this game with three straight losses in the Champions League and have no clean sheet in seven while both teams have scored in seven of the last 10. At home, they have two wins in 10 Champions League matches, with only two clean sheets.

Borussia Dortmund have had really explosive games of late. They are coming from a 4-3 win over Bayer Leverkusen, a match in which they had to come from behind three times. It was another depiction of their leaky defence, the team having conceded two or more goals in their last five matches. Each of their last 11 matches in competitive action has produced over 2.5 goals and they’ve scored three or more in nine of the 11. Erling Haaland has been the star player for Dortmund, with five goals in their last five matches, and the team will be banking on him in the hope to improve their Champions League performances. They have no win in three Champions League matches – two straight losses and a draw while they’ve conceded two or more goals in four straight matches in the competition. In their last four away matches in the Champions League though, they’ve won three.

Conclusion Besiktas Istanbul - Borussia Dortmund

Besiktas have done well in recent matches but they do not have a very strong run at home in the Champions League. This could be their main undoing here because apart from a great attack, Dortmund also have a good run away from home in the Champions League. While we feel Besiktas will be able to score here, Dortmund stand out as favorites and we are backing them to win.
