Besiktas – Trabzonspor betting tip, prediction & odds 23.05.2024

Türkiye Kupasi Final, Thursday, 23.05.2024

The air is burning in Turkey: The cup winner will be crowned on Thursday and the following weekend will decide whether Galatasaray or Fenerbahce will become champions. Why is the final of the Türkiye Kupasi taking place before the season finale?

Quite simply because the two finalists are no longer fighting for the championship title. When third meets fifth, it is extremely difficult to pick a favorite. In my Besiktas Trabzonspor betting tip, I’ll tell you why both are up for almost any result and why I’m betting on a BTS

Trabzonspor are 35 points behind league leaders Galatasaray and yet they have been safe in third place since last weekend. With everyday life now settled, the focus now turns to next Thursday.

This Thursday will see the big cup final in Turkey, the tenth time in total that the team from Trabzon has made it to the final. Champions? Six times, most recently four years ago

Trabzonspor were more consistent in the cup competition than in the league, with only one real nail-biter. And that was against a rival that is not even active in the Süper Lig itself.

3:1 against Corum FK, 3:1 against Mansia FK and 2:1 after extra time against Genclerbirligi, the opponents only became more challenging late in the competition. Basaksehir were beaten 1-0 in the quarter-finals

On arrival in the round of the best four, the teams then played back-and-forth matches. Trabzonspor first won narrowly 3:2 against Karakgümrük, but in the second game the third-placed team left no doubt with a 4:0 victory.

And yet: Five of the six results were extremely close, with only a one-goal advantage. Trabzonspor have not drawn in the league since mid-January, which is certainly not uninteresting for a knockout clash

The points have only been shared four times, will that rule out extra time on Thursday? Let’s take a look at the direct comparison against Besiktas, which looks interesting.

0:3 and 2:0, there has been both a win and a defeat in the current season. Before that, however, there were three draws in a row, so perhaps we shouldn’t completely rule out the possibility that 90 minutes won’t be enough in this final match

Nine goals in a row for both sides, but three in a row recently? It’s hard to find facts in history that you can really rely on. So what makes the bookmakers put Trabzonspor in the role of the underdog?

The average odds at Bet365 are 2.35 to 3.05 in favor of Besiktas, at least as far as the win in regular time is concerned. With regard to the cup win, values of 1.80 to 2.00 can be seen, also in favor of the Black Eagles.

Besiktas must make sure on Thursday that what should be a completely botched season is still a small success. They are fifth in the league and have a small chance of finishing fourth next weekend.

After all, the club can qualify for the Europa League via the cup. Is the Türkiye Kupasi a welcome competition? The last time the title was won was in 2021 and the last time a final was lost was in 2002

Having reached five cup triumphs since then, nerves usually seem to hold in such matches. Besiktas beat Ankaragücü in the semi-finals (0:0 and 1:0), but certainly did not celebrate any roaring soccer festivals.

4:0 against Eyüpspor, 2:1 against Antalyaspor and 2:0 against Konyaspor, the team was also efficient in the previous rounds. Only one goal has been conceded in the current competition, which is only partially true of the Süper Lig.

They drew 2-2 against Hatayspor last weekend and only two of their last ten matches have ended with three points. Besiktas have conceded just once in this period

Since the final is in Istanbul but not in their own stadium, you should also bear in mind that Besiktas have only won away at Istanbulspor since Christmas, i.e. at the bottom of the table!

Finally, there are also a few things to say about personnel. The Black Eagles will be without Jackson Muleka and Rachid Ghezzal, while Trabzonspor will be without young striker Enis Destan, who is suspended.

It’s a knockout game, a match in which it’s all or nothing! Besiktas and Trabzonspor are fighting for the cup. According to the direct duel, Trabzonspor should be ahead, but according to nerves in the final, it would be Besiktas.

Trabzonspor should definitely be in a better position. The Black Eagles have been anything but stable in foreign stadiums this year, especially in defense. At the same time, however, their opponents are always up for a result.

Ultimately, I believe that the small details will decide who comes out on top on Thursday. As a result, I have the following tip in mind:

Both teams score!
