Besiktas vs Leipzig Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
An interesting match awaits us this Tuesday when RB Leipzig will face Besiktas at the Vodafone Stadyumu for the second round of their Champions League group G campaign. Both teams will be looking to build on positive starts.
Besiktas is currently at the top of the table, as they are the only team with a win so far in this group. Last week they won against Porto. The final score was Porto 1, Besiktas 3, thanks to goals from Anderson Talisca, Cenk Tosun, and Ryan Babel. Besiktas have never beaten German opponents in seven previous attempts, six of which ended in defeat, but they have won their last three matches and are unbeaten in their last nine matches in Istanbul having won four and drawn five. Their last loss at home was in 2014/15 UEFA Europa League round of 16 when they lost 3-1 to Club Brugge KV. Last time that they’ve faced a German side was in November of 2009 when they lost to Vfl Wolfsburg in the UEFA Champions League group stage. The only time they managed to avoid a loss to a German side was against the same team, Vfl Wolfsburg, in 2009/10.
RB Leipzig made their UEFA Champions League debut in style as they held the reigning Ligue 1 champions Monaco to a 1-1 home draw thanks to a first-half goal from Emil Forsberg. This week they are set to play their first ever European away match. They qualified for UEFA Champions League by coming second in the 2016/17 Bundesliga, which was also their debut season in the top German tier. They are the first team to make a European debut straight at the group stage.
Besiktas have been a strong side on home soil over the past six months, losing just two of their last 15 home fixtures across all competitions. Furthermore, Besiktas have won their last three European home games. RB Leipzig, on the flip side, have struggled for consistency on the road over the past month and have failed to score in two of these.
Besiktas don't have lots of missing players for the match against Germans. Gökhan Gönül is injured and he will not play for sure. Adriano is not fully fit and he is doubtful for the match. All other players are fully fit and ready for the match and they will play aggressive from the first minute.
On the other side Leipzig also don't have many missing players for this game. Kevin Kampl is not fully fit and he is doubtful for the match. All other players are available to play.
Possible starting lineups
Besiktas: Fabri; Erkin, Pepe, Tosic, Medel; Ozyakup, Hutchinson; Babel, Talisca, Quaresma; Tosun
Leipzig: Gulacsi; Klostermann, Orban, Upamecano, Halstenberg; Demme, Keita; Forsberg, Sabitzer; Werner, Augustin
