Champions League: Monaco hosts Besiktas on the 3rd round match of this Group G of the UEFA Champions League…
In what is one of the closest groups on this competition, the pleasant surprise is definitely being the Turkish team.
Besiktas is leading this group with 2 wins in 2 matches: away against Porto and then at home against the Germans of RB Leipzig.
On the Turkish league, things aren’t going so well for the champions on this early stage of the season. They already failed to win 3 matches, including a loss on the derby against Fenerbahce.
This streak of results left Besiktas only in 6th place of the Turkish Superleague with 14 points, 8 behind leaders Galatasaray.
For this match, the Turks have some unavailable players like Nukan, Tore and Cinar.

After a great campaign last season, winning the French title and having a great performance in the Champions League, Monaco has been dropping off.
That was expected due to the dismantle that Leonardo Jardim’s squad has suffered on the transfer window, where they lost several key players.
On Ligue 1, the team is in 2nd place, 6 points behind PSG but they are coming off a loss against Lyon.
Monaco vs Besiktas – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I expect a match with goals here. Be it on Ligue 1 or on the Champions League, Monaco has been scoring and conceding a lot of goals.
Besiktas has already shown the ability to score away from home and I also believe Monaco will score.
Because of their need to get a result and the exposure they have shown.
