Our football match prediction:
Club Brugge and Istanbul Basaksehir played out a thrilling 3-3 draw at Jan Breydelstadion in the first leg of the Champions League third qualifying round. The Turkish outfit scored vital away goals in the first leg and they are now on a quest to defend their “slim lead” in the tie against the Belgian outfit. A low-scoring draw with Club Brugge in the second leg would see Istanbul Basaksehir make it to the Champions League play-offs, but yet another entertaining game appears on the horizon. The Belgians have nothing to lose in Wednesday’s football match and we predict that they will go all-out attack against the Turkish club. The hosts are likely to have a number of chances to attack their rivals on the break and that is the main reason we are tempted to put our money on Abdullah Avci’s men, who proved their worth in the first leg.
