Besiktas vs Monaco – UEFA Champions League : A great international campaign up until this point….
Being able to get points this afternoon will practically ensure Besiktas’ qualification for the round of 16 of this competition.
Besiktas, despite their achievements on the Champions League, still give the impression that they could be achieving more than what they’ve been getting so far.
It is expected of them to reach, at least, one objective and that might push the Turkish to be stronger.
Just like the main clubs in the country, Besiktas is strong when their attacking line produces. If that attacking line doesn’t work as planned, the difficulties multiply.
On the current path, the confidence plays in their favour and the team will hardly disappoint. Besiktas is strong at home, but they’ve drawn on the last 2 matches played at their own stadium.
Knowing that their opponents will need to expose themselves, Besiktas will hope to have space to play their part offensively in order to get close to qualifying for the next stage.
Manager Şenol Güneş will have his roster in full strength at his disposal.
Monaco seemed to have lost the plot, with the team feeling the effects of the deep changes implemented on their roster. However, they gained some hope on the last rounds, since the team was able to get two consecutive wins.
On the last one they played really well against Bordeaux as visitors. Monaco still think they can do it!
On the Champions League, their situation is pretty delicate. The team only got 1 point out of 9 possible so far and they will need a perfect campaign on this 2nd half to have chances of advancing on the competition.
Their current streak of wins gave them another unexpected side – a rare tactical adjustment on behalf of their defensive system.
Monaco hasn’t conceded on their last two matches. Readapting themselves but still having talent up front, Monaco will try to stay alive.
Manager Leonardo Jardim will still be without his best striker Radamel Falcão.
Besiktas vs Monaco – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Okay, Monaco has been having a different posture when compared to what we were used to on the last matches, but in order to stay alive in the Champions League, they will need more.
Besiktas, by nature, is only able to be strong when their attack works. I imagine that this will be a very open match, with a lot of goals happening in this duel.
