Punters can get 9/4 for a draw here and that is our opening Besiktas vs Wolves prediction.
A Look At Besiktas’ Betting Odds
Besiktas seemed poised to collect a hard-earned point when they were level at 2-2 against Bratislava heading into added time.
Adem Ljajic’s penalty just before the half-hour mark had cancelled out Andraz Sporar’s opener before Vasil Bozhikov’s own goal put the Turkish side ahead on the stroke of half-time.
Sporar notched his second in the 58th minute but Moha and Marin Ljubicic struck at the death to earn the Slovaks their first Europa League win.
This is the sixth time Besiktas have featured in the group stages of this competition, advancing on three occasions, while they reached the quarter-finals in 2016/17.
Last season they finished third in their group, behind Genk and Malmo, winning just one of their three home games.
But they are generally strong in front of their own fans, claiming victory nine times alongside three draws from their 15 games.
Looking at the Besiktas vs Wolves odds, the match to end in a draw with both teams scoring appeals at 13/4.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Having posted six successive wins in qualifying, scoring 19 goals and conceding four, Wolves tasted defeat for the first time on their return to Europe.
Forward Ricardo Horta bagged his fifth goal of the season to snatch victory for the Portuguese side, who like Wolves are struggling domestically.
Patrick Cutrone and Leander Dendoncker went close for the hosts – who dominated for long spells – but their season continues to stutter.
Boss Nuno Espirito Santo said: “We realise the situation that we are in. This is important.
“We face the reality and the reality says we are not performing well so we have to analyse it and find solutions in the team to improve.
“We have to analyse and see what’s wrong with the team. Let’s work on that aspect as a team. We are all disappointed. The boys worked hard but this is football.”
With the pressure on both camps, 4/1 for Draw HT/Draw FT in a close encounter completes our Besiktas vs Wolves betting tips.
