Istanbul Basaksehir - Paris SG
Istanbul Basaksehir and Paris SG will play the match of the 2nd round of the UEFA Champions League at Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu in Istanbul. I will bet on the option that we will see at least 12 corners in this match.
Istanbul Basaksehir wins their first champion s title last year and now they qualify for the UEFA Champions League for the first time in history. But they will need to play much better if they want to qualify for the next round. They start the new season in Turkey with very bad results and they have 7 points in the first 6 matches. To be honest, they win in the last two matches 2-0 Trabzonspor (away) and 5-1 Antalyaspor (home). In the first round of the UEFA Champions League, they lost in Leipzig with 0-2 (5 corners). Istanbul Basaksehir will be without Ucar, Chadli, Caicara, and Azubuike.
Paris SG also had a bad start in Ligue 1 with 2 losses: Lens 0-1 and Marseille 0-1. They have also bad start in the UEFA Champions League, they lost against Manchester United with 1-2 (19 corners in that match). With a sizeable list of players unavailable, Paris has brought several younger talents with them to Istanbul. Youngest of all is 17-year-old Randriamamy, called up as third-choice goalkeeper to replace the absent Letellier. Paris SG will be without Bernat, Draxler, Icardi, Jese, Letellier, Paredes, and Veratti tonight.
Both teams have 0 points and they will be highly motivated for tonight s match. In the last 15 home matches, Istanbul Basaksehir has 11 wins, 3 draws, and 1 defeat. I expect a match with 4+ goals, a lot of shots on the goal, and a lot of corners.
