Soccer best betting tips today for Besiktas – Rio Ave

Besiktas hosts Rio Ave at the Vodafone Park in Istanbul in a match from the 3rd qualifying round of Europa League. Let’s preview it in our soccer best betting tips for today.


Besiktas tried to qualify for the Champions League, but the Turkish failed against the Greek side PAOK and suffered a 1-3 loss away from home. It was not the end for them, though – they continued their European participation in Europa League. Now they are very close to reaching the group stage.


Besiktas scored one win and made one draw in their first two games in the Turkish Super Lig. Last weekend the Black Eagles hosted Antalyaspor and only won a point after a 1-1 draw. Cyle Larin opened the score for the hosts, but Antalyaspor equalised with a very late goal from Gokdeniz Bayrakdat just five minutes before the end. It was a dissapointing way for Besiktas to finish the match.


Rio Ave reached the 3rd qualifying round of Europa League after a 2-0 win in the previous round. The Portuguese team paid a visit to Borac Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but it was not easy to win. Rio Ave scored both of their goals after the 90th minute of the match. Tarantini opened the score while Nikola Jambor made it 0-2 for the visitors.


In the Portuguese Primeira Liga Rio Ave started the 2020/21 season with a draw. Mario Silva’s team visited Tondela and won a point after a 1-1 result. They were actually close to losing, but Meshino scored an equaliser in the 92th minute. It was a lucky scenario for Rio Ave.


These are our soccer best betting tips today for the Europa League qualifying game between Besiktas and Rio Ave on Thursday. The Turkish club is probably the favourite here, but Rio Ave could trouble them – they have a squad filled with players from Portugal and Brazil.
