Besiktas 10/1 to beat RB Leipzig in Wednesday’s Champions League showdown

Competition: Champions League

Market: Besiktas to beat RB Leipzig

Odds: 10/1 @ Bet365

The Champions League returns for another gripping round of games as the competition reaches boiling point. With just one match left, the three points on offer will likely prove to be the difference between a team staying in Europe in the new year, and having to watch on from home. With this in mind, Besiktas travel to face RB Leipzig on Wednesday.

RB Leipzig find themselves in trouble this season and they need a big result in order to go through. After five games they have picked up seven points from two wins, a draw and two defeats. Nine goals scored and conceded is a fairly poor record, and it has left them with a goal difference of zero, in comparison to Porto’s +2. This means that in order to assure themselves of going through, they must win and score three more than whatever Porto score. This is made even more difficult as they must do it against a Besiktas side that have only conceded four times this season. Of course, Porto may lose, but Leipzig will not be counting on this.

Besiktas can cruise into the knock-out stages of the Champions League as they have a four-point lead over second-placed Porto. Three wins and two draws along with nine goals and four conceded is a good record, and they will be looking to go through the group unbeaten, meaning they will not make it easy for Leipzig to score the goals they need. With this in mind, we are backing Besiktas with odds of 10/1 from Bet365.

Bet: Besiktas to beat Porto in Wednesday’s Champions League encounter: 10/1 @ Bet365>>
