Preview: Liverpool – Besiktas Istanbul (Europa League, 19.02.2015)

Daniel Sturridge believes his Liverpool side can win Europa League and tipsters are left wondering whether the striker thinks so because of an ever increasing form Liverpool seem to be gaining or the fact that UEFA will be giving a Champions League place to the winner of the competition. Anfield Road will open its doors to Besiktas once again after that memorable 8-0 win from 2008, which the visitors might be keen to avenge. You just need to register at the best betting agent and bet on this match!

Ever since losing to Chelsea in the League One Cup, Liverpool has been on an unbeaten run of 5 matches, with four wins and one draw. Liverpool is also in a good place mood-wise after the win against Tottenham where they managed to rally around Dembele’s 2-2 equalizer to have Balotelli score the winner on the 83 minutes.


Besiktas are leading the Süper Lig with one point advantage over Fenerbahce and two from Galatasaray. The visitors have good experience on the European stage where they were denied the Champions League football by another English team. In their domestic league, Besiktas come from an important win over Bursaspor where Demba Ba scored, Besiktas Europa League goalscorer with 5 goals, the winner in the last minutes of the game.

If Anfield is the clout Liverpool need in order to qualify then expect them to score more than a goal while avoiding an away Besiktas goal. Liverpool has 2.40 odds for both halves, Besiktas 11.00 and both teams to score and over 2.5 goals have 2.55 odds. Besiktas, as the last team to score, has 3.25 odds, Liverpool 1.48 and we’re betting 7 units on Demba Ba to score with 3.35 odds from Titan Bet, the bookmaker with best odds on the market. Liverpool has 2.15 odds to score, Balotelli 2.35, Sterling 2.50 and Lambert 2.70.
