Bet on Turkish League this Christmas with games even on Christmas Eve
One of the top Turkish teams, Besiktas will visit the home of MKE Ankaragucu on the 24th of December. The Istanbul club is currently in 4th place but only 4 points behind the leaders. They won the title last time in 2017, and finished third last season. But the team was knocked out in the qualifying round from both the Champions League and Europa League. So not everything is perfect at the club and a win would be necessary to keep up with the other teams.
Their opponent, Ankaragucu are in a much worse position though after being only in 19th place which would mean relegation at the end of the season. But to get the three points against Besiktas might be a difficult task. Online sportsbooks in Turkey offer the odds of 4.12 for a home win while the guests’ odds are 1.795. Another team in danger, Kayserispor will host Konyaspor on Thursday. The home team is in 18th place and would need all the three points against the 13th-place team. As at the moment they would face relegation this season what they successfully escaped last year.
Leaders are in action at the weekend
The current leaders, Alanyaspor will play their next game this Sunday, on the 27th of December. The team will face a tough game in the home of Gaziantep, who are in 5th place at the moment. But the runner-up of last year’s Turkish Cup are in superb form this season, only losing three games so far. Cameroon international Vincent Aboubakar is a threat in front. While their defense is stable with former La Liga player Juanfran, English Steven Caulker and defensive midfielder Salih Ucan. Alanyaspor are not doing so great on away games but online gambling sites in Turkey favor them to win the game with the odds of 2.145.
