The seventh round of the Turkish Super League will open in Izmir on Friday. The local " Altai "will host the current national champion"Besiktas" here. We offer you a forecast for this meeting.
Altaians became one of the main discoveries at the start of this season. Having returned to the Super League after an absence of almost 20 years, the Izmir team is striving to gain a foothold in the group of leaders. In the opening two matches, they won outrageously, having dealt at home with Kayserispor (3: 0) and away with Alanyaspor (4: 1). After that, there were two defeats – on their own field from Fenerbahce (0: 2) and away from Konyaspor (1:3). But Mustafa Denizli's team managed to prevent the continuation of the black streak, and they snatched a strong-willed victory in the derby over Geztepe (2: 1), after which they beat Rizepor (2:1) on the road.
The current champions are the sole leaders of the new championship after six rounds, although they have already managed to make two misfires. A month ago, the Black Eagles failed to finish off Gazisehir Gaziantep (0:0) on the road. A week and a half ago, Besiktas failed to avoid defeat in the opening match of the Champions League, losing at home to Borussia Dortmund (1:2), which negatively affected the team's mood. After that, the Istanbul team miraculously snatched a strong-willed victory away from Antalyaspor (3: 2), and in the last round they managed to lose a home victory over Adana Demirspor (3:3).
Statistics and figures

- In five of the six matches played by Altai this season, the Total bet was more than 2.5;
- Besiktas has a 6-match unbeaten streak in head-to-head matches with Altai (4 wins + 2 draws);
- Besiktas has lost only 1 match out of the last nine, winning 6 times;
- In the last four matches of Besiktas, the bet "Total more than 2.5" was held.
"Besiktas" has seriously disrupted the game in defense, which Altai, which is on guard, should definitely take advantage of. Betting on the exchange of goals looks like a reliable option here, and it is unlikely that the teams will be limited to a 1-1 draw.
