Besiktas vs RasenBallsport Leipzig Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

RB Leipzig are still searching for their first Champions League victory when they travel to the Vodafone Stadyumu to take on Besiktas on Tuesday night for the second round of their Champions League group G campaign. Besiktas managed an incredible 1-3 victory on the road at Porto in the opening round thanks to goals from Anderson Talisca, Cenk Tosun and Ryan Babel. Meanwhile, RB Leipzig made their Champions League debut in fashion a fortnight ago as they held the reigning Ligue 1 champions Monaco to a 1-1 home draw thanks to a first-half goal from Emil Forsberg. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips - Match Odds

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. After their impressive 1-3 win over Porto last time out, I’m backing Besiktas to grab another point in this one.

Besiktas Preview

Besiktas’ form over the past month and a half have been impressive, both domestically and in Europe. They are unbeaten in five league games at the moment, but they have a difficult trip to their eternal rivals Fenerbahce this weekend. Furthermore, Besiktas kicked off their Champions League group stage campaign in an impressive manner, as they picked up a comfortable 1-3 victory on the road at Porto a fortnight ago. They now sit at the top of the group G table with three points to their name, two points more than Monaco and RB Leipzig, who drew 1-1 last time out. Besiktas can count on their home form ahead of this tie as they have only lost once in their last 12 home games across all competitions and are currently unbeaten in four outings. In addition, the Turkish side have won their last three European home games. They drew all three home fixtures in last season’s group stage and have drawn their last four home games in the Champions League, qualifying included. This is Besiktas’ first meeting with a German opponent since losing 3-0 at home against Wolfsburg in the 2009/10 Champions League season. Ryan Babel and Cenk Tosun have scored two goals each throughout their domestic campaign and they also got on the scoresheet last time out against Porto.

Besiktas Team News

Adriano, Alvaro Negredo, Denys Boyko and Oguzhan Ozyakup are all doubts, but Atinc Nukan and Gokhan Tore are both missing through injury.

RasenBallsport Leipzig Preview

RB Leipzig finished in an incredible second position in the Bundesliga table last season, but they kicked off the new campaign in a disappointing manner. They have only won two of their opening five league games so far this season, but they have a great opportunity to get back to winning ways this weekend when they welcome Eintracht Frankfurt at the Venue Red Bull Arena. The good news is that RB Leipzig managed to snatch a point from their 1-1 home draw against Monaco in their Champions League opening round a fortnight ago. Away from home, RB Leipzig have endured a mixed run of form over the past nine months, registering five defeats, seven wins and three draws in their last 15 away games across all competitions. The most worrying fact is that Leipzig have failed to score in two of their three league trips so far this season. Timo Werner has been in fine shape throughout their Bundesliga campaign so far this season, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with four goals under his belt. Emil Forsberg, who gave Leipzig the lead last time out against Monaco, has only provided one assist for the team in the Bundesliga so far this season, but he has helped Leipzig with eight goals and 22 assists last term.

RasenBallsport Leipzig Team News

Fabio Coltorti and Jean Kevin Augustin are both doubts ahead of this trip.
