Leipzig vs Besiktas: Already qualified for the Champions’ League round of 16, Besiktas visits Leipzig…
If for the Turks the situation is peaceful and tranquil, for the Germans the case is different.
Leipzig needs to beat Besiktas and count on FC Porto to drop points against the eliminated Monaco at Estádio do Dragão.
Well, it won’t be an easy task for the Germans to advance to the next stage.
In fact, Leizpig’s campaign on their historical debut in the Champions League has been filled with inconsistency.
The team battered Monaco away from home but drew with that same Monaco at home, on a result that might have been decisive for them not to advance to the next stage.
Leipzig is in 3rd place of the group with the same 7 points as FC Porto, but they are behind on the tiebreak criteria.

Besiktas is one of the positive surprises of this Champions’ League group stage. Not that anyone doubted the Turkish team’s potential.
But on such a close group, many would put the Turks as favourites not to advance to the round of 16.
But Besiktas comes into this final round already qualified in first place of this group, with 11 points conquered, and they can no longer be overlapped.
Leipzig vs Besiktas – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Besiktas is unbeaten on the Champions League, getting 3 wins and 2 draws so far.
Of course, the Turkish side can relax a bit here. But do these odds match reality?
Will the best team in the group be battered by a Leipzig that is yet to show their best?
I don’t think so. I expect a tough game, even with the possibility of Besiktas to get some points in Germany.
