Preview:

Besiktas and Liverpool face of on this second leg match of the Europa League’s best of 32.

Besiktas needs to do something that it hasn’t been able to for the last two games, to win. On the first leg, the home team lost at Liverpool but, now, in front of their own crowd they expect to do much better and claim a favourable result. They are now placed 2nd on the Turkish league with 47 points.

On the other side. Liverpool are going through the best moment of the season with 18 undefeated games. They occupy the 6th place on the English premier league with 45 points.

The head-to-head history between the two teams gives the advantage to Liverpool. On their last 3 games they have won 2 and lost only 1.

Analysis of Beşiktaş

Besiktas danger man is Demba Ba. The striker is the centrepiece of the Turkish attacking game and is a presence to be reckoned with within the box. On his account he already has 13 goals scored.

On the midfield, the brain of the team is José Sosa. He is the responsible for the creation of the team’s attacking football. On his back, Kavlak is the man in charge of stopping the opponent’s midfield game with is excellent aerial game.

Their weak spot is the defense that gives a lot of spaces to the opponents with their lack of coordination and organization.

On this match, Besiktas will probably adopt a 4-2-3-1 tactic, pressing the attack trying to take some advantage of the opponent’s weak defense.

Probable Starting Squad: Gonen; Kurtulus, Franco, Uysal, Hutchinson; Ozyakup, Kavlak, Tore, Sosa, Sahan; Demba Ba.
Coach: Slaven Bilic


Confirmed Lineup: C. Gönen, P. Franco, S. Kurtuluş, D. Opare, V. Kavlak, N. Uysal, J. Sosa, G. Töre, A. Hutchinson, O. Şahan, D. Ba.
Coach: S. Bilić.

Analysis of Liverpool

Coach Brendan Rodgers will probably utilize a 3-4-3 formation privileging safe football and quick transitions through the flanks. It would not be surprising to see Liverpool adopting a more passive approach to avoid the counters though.

The star of the team is the youngster Sterling with his amazing ball handling, He will have the help of Henderson, the responsible for both the defensive and offensive recuperating balls and launching the attack.

Markovic will be unavailable though. The Serbian is suspended and will probably be replaced by Coutinho, another great ball handler.

Defensively the team is not very good, with some problems regarding coordination and concentration.

Probable Starting squad: Mignolet; Can, Skrtel, Lovren; Ibe, Henderson, Allen, Moreno; Sturridge, Coutinho, Sterling.
Coach: Brendan Rodgers


Confirmed Lineup: S. Mignolet, Alberto Moreno, K. Touré, M. Škrtel, D. Lovren, R. Sterling, J. Ibe, E. Can, J. Allen, D. Sturridge, M. Balotelli.
Coach: B. Rodgers.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this game will be Besiktas not losing. We believe that the home team has everything to not be defeated on this match playing on its own turf. Despite the quality Liverpool has, it is likely that they will try to protect their advantage adopting a more defensive stance which can work towards a draw.
