Sure, in Group K of the Europa League, Besiktas Istanbul and Wolverhampton Wanderers will be able to secure the first two places relatively easily and make the leap into the semifinals. That was at least the first impression after the draw. After the first matchday, the experts are not so sure.
Today’s Soccer Predictions and Odds Besiktas vs Wolverhampton
The two favorites have both conceded a defeat in the first group match. Besiktas defeated Slovan Bratislava 2-4, while the Wolves lost 1-0 at home to Sporting Braga. Both opponents are therefore on Thursday in direct duel under pressure.
Wolverhampton are one of six clubs to celebrate their debut in the Europa League this season. Already that is unbelievable in principle, because the wolves play after the rise just the second year again in the Premier League. This is an expression of the very good work done by Nuno Espirito Santo as coach to the English.
Both teams have not been able to convince in their national leagues this season. For the Turks, we can even speak of a bad false start, because Besiktas is in the Süperlig to the top teams.
The Wolves, however, are probably back in normal waters. In general, it will be difficult to make a concrete prediction in the match between Besiktas Istanbul and Wolverhampton. All in all, English teams, even if they have little international experience, always have a lot to watch out for in the Europa League, as the Premier League clubs simply have far more financial resources than most of their competitors.
Therefore, it would be almost dramatic if the wolves pick up the next defeat and thus almost before the end. The seriousness of the situation should be well known and therefore in the match between Besiktas Istanbul and Wolverhampton a tip on an away win might not be a bad choice.

Under normal circumstances, however, you will not even win at the Bosporus. Accordingly, it could be quite tight.
Besiktas – Statistics & Current Form
The situation at Besiktas Istanbul is dramatic. The Eagles have had the worst start of the season ever. The Black and Whites are now playing in the Süperlig for 60 years, and there have never been so few points left after six matchdays. Especially abroad, the 15-time champion gets no leg on the ground.
Five points from six games currently mean a relegation place. However, new coach Abdullah Avci does not even think about offering his resignation, although there has already been a rally of supporters calling for the bureau and coach to resign. The unrest is only too understandable, because for five official games Besiktas has not won.
Under these circumstances, it is unbelievable that the feet are still kept still. However, Abdullah Avci is a well-known coach that you do not just put in front of the door. There still seems to be confidence in the coach. However, given the misery of the Turks, in the match between Besiktas and Wolverhampton we would pay more attention to the odds of an away win.
Last weekend, there was a nasty abortion for the Eagles. At Trabzonspor Besiktas had to accept a clear 1: 4 defeat. Although Istanbul had more of the game, but Dorukhan Toköz got the Trabzon leadership with an own goal. After the 0: 3 germinated by the goal of Güven Yalcin again hope, but in the end there was a bad bankruptcy.
Mentality has recently become a buzzword and Abdullah Avci is also jumping on this move. He wants to have identified with his players a mental fatigue, for which the coach was basically responsible for exactly that.
“There is a mental fatigue within the team, but we will master it through work, diligence and struggle.” – Abdullah Avci
Nevertheless, he continues to fight and tries to get the boat afoot again with stoppages.
It’s hard to say why Besiktas is far behind the possibilities. At least it can not be a matter of staff shortages because almost all players are fit. So Abdullah Avci can almost send his best team into the race on Thursday. With Victor Ruiz, only one player has logged off because of an injury.
Probable team of Besiktas:
↳ Karius – Erkin, Uysal, Vida, Gönül – Hutchinson, Toköz – N’Koudou, Özyakup, Boyd – Yilmaz
↳ Coach: Avci

Wolverhampton – Statistics & Current Form
For the Wolves it is a huge thing to play in the Europa League. With seventh in the Premier League last season and six wins in six qualifiers, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have more than earned the international comeback. The last time Wolverhampton played in the UEFA Cup was almost 40 years ago.
However, the wolves were in 1972 once before in the final of the Europa League, which was still held at the time as the UEFA Cup. At that time, the West Midlander were defeated in the finals against the Tottenham Hotspurs. So it’s high time that a new chapter was opened in this respect, and perhaps new legends were born.
After seven games Wolves have in the Premier League seven points in the account and are in 13th place. After a small dry spell in mid-September, the team of Nuno Espirito Santo seems to be on the right path again. After all, there has been no defeat in the last three games. An indication that in the match between Besiktas Istanbul and Wolverhampton might give a prediction on an away win.
After four draws and two defeats, last weekend saw their first win of the season in the Premier League. Watford FC was a guest in the West Midlands. The Wolves did not really have much of a game, but went 1-0 in the 18th minute through Matt Doherty. The 2-0 final Watford FC also got an own goal.
So right, the Wolves seem with the double burden, to come in England with the League Cup and the FA Cup two more competitions, can not handle yet.
“We have to get used to the hectic combination of Europa League and Premier League.” – Nuno Espirito Santo
This is also the coach’s assessment, but he is confident that his team will develop in this regard.
Personnel Wolverhampton can draw on the Bosporus on Thursday from the full. We think that here and there, the usual rotation could take effect, with Nuno Espirito Santo after the first victory in the Premier League could indeed follow the motto “Never change a winning team” and the same players trusted.
Probable team of Wolverhampton:
↳ Rui Patricio, Coady, Boly, Saiss – Otto, Joao Moutinho, Dendoncker, Doherty – Neto, Traore, Jimenez
↳ Coach: Espirito Santo
Wolverhampton’s last matches:
⚽️ 28.09.2019 – Wolverhampton Vs. Watford 2: 0 (Premier League)
⚽️ 25.09.2019 – Wolverhampton Vs. Reading 4: 2 n.E. (League Cup)
⚽️ 22.09.2019 – Crystal Palace vs. Wolverhampton 1: 1 (Premier League)
⚽️ 19.09.2019 – Wolverhampton Vs. Braga 0: 1 (Europa League)
⚽️ 14.09.2019 – Wolverhampton Vs. Chelsea 2: 5 (Premier League)

Besiktas vs Wolverhampton Best Soccer Prediction Provided by PicksSoccer Experts
The mood at Besiktas Istanbul is currently absolutely in the basement. The worst season start of the club’s history would have considered no bookmaker possible. The Eagles have not won for five games and are led in the Süperlig on a relegation zone. The days of Coach Abdullah Avci may be counted in further failures.
The Wolves also did not have a particularly successful Premier League prelude, but claims are much lower in the West Midlands than on the Bosporus. Meanwhile, the team of Nuno Espirito Santo has caught and not lost for three games. We think that in the match between Besiktas Istanbul and Wolverhampton a tip for an away win could be quite legitimate.
Key Facts – Besiktas vs Wolverhampton tips
⭐️ In 60 years Süperlig Besiktas has never started worse in a season.
⭐️ Istanbul has not scored a victory for five competitive matches.
⭐️ Wolverhampton has not lost three times, but could only win one of seven games in the Premier League.
However, this is a daring tip, as well as the quotas make clear. The bookies see both teams at eye level. We think that the Wolves can exploit the vulnerability of the Turks on the defensive, and that the Eagles at home should also come to goals.
