Both teams have scored in 8/10 at Fatih Terim Stadium

"Genclerbirligi have scored in 9/10 away matches so far this season"

Back Both Teams To Score @ 1.9210/11 in Basaksehir v Genclerbirligi

Basaksehir v Genclerbirligi
Friday 17:00

In Portugal last night, Academica did their bit, scoring once in both halves, but Academico failed the test. In losing 2-0 they took our bet down with them.

We're in Turkey today for this afternoon's sole game from the top-flight Super Lig. Third-placed Basaksehir welcome 13th-placed (and newly promoted) Genclerbirligi to Fatih Terim Stadium and we fancy both teams to get on the score sheet.

Last season's runners-up are five points off the top, having gone W6-D3-L1 at home this term. However, they have conceded 10 times across those 10 matches, with just a couple of clean sheets along the way. Having scored themselves in a perfect 10/10, BTTS has been the right bet in 8/10.

Visiting Genclerbirligi are W2-D2-L6 on the road in their first season back in the top flight. The Wind of Ankara have blown hot and cold, conceding in all but one of those games (a 6-0 thrashing of 15th-placed Antalyaspor). However, they have scored themselves in 9/10. With 8/10 producing BTTS, the 1.9210/11 about a similar outcome today is a generous price.
