Another UEFA Champions League match between Basaksehir and Sevilla where I will bet on corners. Sevilla is favourite to win but this will be not an easy match for them. Odds for Sevilla to win are very high as Basaksehir is a very strong team when playing at home but I prefere to bet on corners. Sevilla is a team that love to play with possession and that collect a lot of corners per game while Basaksehir will play defensive minded trying to not concede a clutch away goal. I'm expecting them to focus a lot on their defense trying to play on counterattacks and on fast breaks.
Baseksehir have played two european matches this season...they collected only one corner in the first leg away from home against Club Brugge and only two when playing at home. They will not have a lot of possession (I think that they will have around 40-45%) and they will play on counter attacks. They have not a game style based on corners.
Sevilla, on the other hand, will have more possession. It will be not that easy for them to score against a very organised team but I'm expecting them to push hard and to win a good amount of corners. Sevilla have the better players and they should show today at least controlling the tempo of the game.
I think that, considering the home advantage for Basaksehir, it's very hard to predict who will win this match. If Basaksehir will take the lead, it's even better as Sevilla will push even harder. Also, in case of 0-1 or 0-0, Sevilla will always try to score as they have an offensive minded attidude. I will bet on Sevilla to win more corners than Basaksehir. Odds are a gift in my opinion.
