Besiktas is one of the three Turkish teams fighting for the championship yearly. They haven't had much success in recent years, having not won the title since the 21 season, but they are trying not to fall out of the ranks. A year ago, they finished third, ten points behind the champions. The start has not been the best for the Eagles, having earned only 13 points out of 21 in seven rounds, sitting in third place in the standings. On the international stage, however, the Turks are doing well. They passed all the qualifying rounds for the Europa League and tied with Brugge in the group stage - 1:1.
Lugano only won the Swiss title three times. The last time was in the distant 1948-49 season, and they have only finished runners-up a handful of times since then. They are not a dominant team, but still won the bronze medal last season. In their opening group stage match, they drew with Bodo/Glimt 0:0. At home, the team started at the usual level and gained 15 out of 24 points in eight games, occupying third place.
