Sarpsborg vs Besiktas (By: Saconex)
UEFA Europa League
Sarpsborg (2) vs Besiktas (4)
Sarpsborg have chances for qualification from this group, and this is for sure a key match. They are undefeated in 7 matches in all competitions (2-5-0) and are coming from winning 0-2 away vs Tromso (10) in the last league match of the season. They should be top motivated for this, and as it stands they have good chances for qualification from this group, specially with a win tonight. Their best midfielder Zachariassen reported fit again tonight.
Besiktas is placed in the bottom of the group and they have to go for the win tonight. They are coming from winning 1-4 away vs Ankaragucu (8). The most important factor for this pick is that several important players are missing: Queresma, Tore, Celebi, Acikgoz, Pepe, Arslan, Roco, Medel & Babel. Time will tell how many of these players will start the match, but fact is that they will miss some important players tonight.
* Besiktas won the reverse fixture by 3-1
Sarpsborg will go all in for 3 points here and taking in mind that the visitors should be more desperate for the win, I think the hosts will get their chances. Sarpsborgs season overall is a disappointment but they have had full priority on this campaign. Taking in mind how many players Besiktas are missing/resting, I consider the hosts as favourites and this match should for sure give us goals, probably both ways.
