The last time these teams met was less than a year ago, on March 9, 2023. It took place in Ghent at the Ghelamco Arena. This upcoming match will undoubtedly be interesting due to the fact that the previous competition did not result in a winner.
After losing their previous match against Beşiktaş by a score of 0-2 in the Super Lig, Istanbul Başakşehir will be hoping for a better performance in this one. Istanbul Başakşehir had 49 percent possession in that match and 13 attempts at goal, two of which were successful.
Beşiktaş made 12 attempts on goal, four of which were successful. Beşiktaş received goals from Vincent Aboubakar (15′) and Arthur Masuaku (55′). In five of the last six matches in which Istanbul Başakşehir participated, fewer than three goals were scored.
In terms of this period’s goal split, their opponents scored a total of six goals, while Istanbul Başakşehir scored six goals of their own. Having said that, all we can do is wait and see if that pattern continues in this game. In their previous match, KAA Gent defeated SV Zulte Waregem by a score of 2-6 in the First Division A.
In that game, KAA Gent had 61% possession and made 11 shots on goal, 8 of which were successful. Julien De Sart scored 37′, Alessio Castro-Montes scored 41′, and Gift Orban scored 53′, 68′, 75′, and 83′ for KAA Gent. Zulte Waregem made 11 shots on goal, four of which were successful. Jelle Vossen (65′) and Timothy Derijck (52′) scored goals for SV Zulte Waregem.
A relatively small number of goals have stood between KAA Gent and their opponents in five of the previous six matches. During that time, De Buffalo scored an average of 1.83 goals per game, for a total average of 2.67 goals per game.
We believe that KAA Gent should have enough chances to score against this team from Istanbul Başakşehir, but those chances probably won’t be as many as the goals they could give up. We feel that it will be a tight experience wrapping up with a 2-1 benefit for Istanbul Başakşehir when the ref blows the last whistle. Let’s see how things turn out.
This will be the second time that the two teams will meet. Istanbul Basaksehir won four of their six group games to finish as group champions in Group A. In the group stage of the competition, they had a 100% home record, scoring three goals in each game, keeping two clean sheets, and only conceding once.
In the competition’s group stage, the hosts had the best offensive and defensive record, allowing just three goals while scoring 14. This season, Gent lost two of their four games while traveling through the Conference League’s group stage.
Istanbul has only lost one of their last five games at home, winning the other four, while the visitors have only won one of their last five games away from home.
After his costly slip against Besiktas, Januzaj may be suspended for Basaksehir’s upcoming matches in the Turkish Super Lig, but the 28-year-old will be available for Gent’s trip to Europe. Mesut Ozil has barely been spotted during a season hounded by different niggling wounds,
While protective midfielder Eden Karzev is likewise uncertain subsequent to limping off in the main leg against Gent and missing the loss to Besiktas. During the winter transfer window, Basaksehir added eight senior players to their roster, but only three of them made it into their Conference League team.
Edgar Ie, along with Januzaj and Karzev, made the cut as a center back; that means that up to five first-team players won’t be able to play in the second leg on Wednesday. Long-term absentees Tarik Tissoudali (knee) and Andrew Hjulsager (Achilles) are regulars in a busy treatment room, giving Vanhaezebrouck a slew of injury concerns to manage.
Darko Lemajic (adductor) and Sulayman Marreh (muscle) have not played since Halloween, and defenders Bruno Godeau and Joseph Okumu have both been dealing with calf and ankle issues for the past month.
Jordan Torunarigha, a former centre-back for Hertha Berlin, has missed the previous two games because of a knock. His availability is also uncertain.
