Our prediction for this Europa League match:
As expected, Besiktas outclassed B36 of Faroe Islands in the Europa League second qualifying round. The black-whites scored six goals in the return leg and they must be high on confidence ahead of Thursday’s football match against LASK. Canadian attacker Cyle Larin scored a hat-trick in the 6-0 win over B36 and all eyes will be on him when Besiktas face LASK at their Vodafone Stadyumu. It is well known that the Turkish side produce thrilling displays in front of home fans and we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. The Austrian side did well to beat Lillestrom in the second qualifying round, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the double-header against Besiktas. The Turkish side are on a five-game winning run at home in the Europa League, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
