Match: Fenerbahce – Grasshoppers Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Thursday, 18 August, 2016
Start time: 19:00 UK
Fenerbahce hosts Grasshoppers in a first match who will decide which team will play in the Europe League group stage.
It will be one very specific moment for Fenerbahce and all their fans after hearing the news that Dick Advocaat is the new manager of the team. The Dutchman is set to make his debut against Grasshoppers and there are absolutely no doubts that all Fenerbahce fans will show their support on Advocaat. The biggest Fenerbahce’s advantage is the individual class. They have a lot of top class players just like: Emanuel Emenike, Robin Van Persie, Martin Skrtel, Koybasi, van der Wiel, Kjaer and etc.
Their offensive power is so big – a thing, that is caused generally by the presence of Van Persie. The appointment of Advocaat will be a good reason for Van Persie to find his best form and to lead the team to the glory. This match is a must-win for Fenerbahce and they will try to do it with a big goal difference. Grasshoppers started the season with a plenty problems in defence which we will see in Turkey. The Swiss players will be under a big pressure in a game like that and this will knock them out. In this time their best player is the midfielder – Caio Cesar Alves dos Santos, also known as Caio, who scored 5 goals in the last 4 games since the beginning of the season.
Grasshoppers is a team which lean on attacking football and we will see right that in the upcoming game. There are two very attack-minded teams and everything different than “over 2.5 goals” in the game will be a surprise.
Tip: Over 2.5 goals @ 3/5 (1.60) with Bet365
