Burnley – Istanbul Basaksehir
Burnley hosts Istanbul Basaksehir in a second leg from the Europa League 3rd round qualifiers. Let’s examine this clash in our winning soccer predictions for today.
After the first game in Istanbul ended with a 0-0 draw, everything between these two teams looks wide open. Now Burnley will have the advantage to play at home, but even one away goal from Istanbul Basaksehir will make the English team’s task pretty difficult. For sure they are going to attack, but they have to be very careful in defense.
In the English Premier League Burnley started their season with a 0-0 draw during the visit to Southampton. Last season Sean Dyche’s team performed in amazing way, finishing 7th in the Premier League. Now they will try to at least repeat this performance and prove that it was not a fluke.
Last season Istanbul Basaksehir did pretty good and finished third in the Turkish Super Lig, with just three points behind the champion Galatasaray. This allowed them to qualify for Europa League for a second consecutive time. Now their goal is to once again reach the group stage of the competition.
Istanbul Basaksehir started the new campaign in the Super Lig with a win. Abdullah Avci’s boys beat Trabzonspor with 2-0 at home. The goals in the match were scored by Manuel da Costa and Emmanuel Adebayor.
These are our winning soccer predictions for today for the Europa League qualifying game between Burnley and Istanbul Basaksehir. We believe that Burnley have a slight advantage, because of playing at home, but in same time Istanbul Basaksehir have a little bit more of an European experience. If the Turkish team manages to score a goal or two at the Turf Moor, it will become very difficult for Burnley to respond. We wish you a good luck!
