Unibet sees Besiktas as the favorites to win on home soil, as they host Feyenoord for the return leg of the third Champions League qualification round. The Turkish side find themselves on a mini winning streak, as they have their second win in a row. In the first match Feyenoord started as the team with a purpose, pressed for the goal, but a corner awarded to Besiktas on the 13th minute saw Pektemek opening the score.
In the second half the visitors made it 2-0 and Feyenoord was only able to strike back on the 95th minute, and with the away goal advantage Besiktas enter the match from Rotterdam being favorites. Feyenoord is the team to suffer most after the World Cup, as their brightest stars have moved to another club, after Netherlands’ successful campaign. Feyenoord has not been in the Champions League group stage ever since 2008 and it would take great effort to qualify further.
Besiktas will be relying on their summer transfers to make the difference. Among them is the former Chelsea player Demba Ba, but it is still the tactics meant to make all the difference. Slaven Bilic is the one to impose a more attacking style to Besiktas, and being backed up by one of the most loyal fans, they might stop all attacking intents Feyenoord might come up with.
An outright Feynoord win is at 3.65, Besiktas at 2.00, and a draw is at 3.50 with Unibet. Same bookmaker has Besiktas to qualify at 1.10 and Feyenoord at 6.00. Both teams to score is at 1.82, and home team to score in both halves is at 3.20. The eventuality of a goal being scored in the first 15 minutes is at 3.20, in the first 30 at 1.80, and Besiktas to lead at half time is at 2.65, which is that we are going to bet on with 7 units.
